Richard Deitsch Loses Friendly Bet With Jemele Hill

Two journalists who cared more about Michigan-Michigan State and less about who called the game were Jemele Hill of ESPN and Richard Deitsch of Sports Illustrated.

Deitsch, a 2009 Knight-Wallace Fellow at the University of Michigan, made a bet with Hill, a proud Michigan State alum, on the outcome of this past Saturday’s contest:

Given our dueling loyalties today, I’m proposing a wager:

If Michigan State beats Michigan, I have to send out a TwitPic from an iconic New York City location, holding up a sign (or someone else holding it) that reads:

JEMELE HILL AND ESPN RULE.

If Michigan wins, you take your talents to South Beach and TwitPic a sign from an iconic Miami location that reads:

RICHARD DEITSCH AND SI RULE.

You game?

Hill was game, and so were the Spartans, cruising to an easy 34-17 victory over Denard Robinson and the Wolverines.

As you can see above, Deitsch was a man of his word, snapping a photo of his sign in front of the legendary Radio City Music Hall.
