During its broadcast of Northwestern vs. No. 12 Michigan State Thursday night, ESPN decided to try out a new, *revolutionary* broadcast technique:

Yes, that is legendary UConn head coach Jim Calhoun, who now works as a (remarkably bad, hard to listen to) color commentator for ESPN. Calhoun called the Northwestern-Michigan State game alongside Rece Davis.

Apparently the network decided it wasn't enough to merely hear Calhoun mumble into a microphone though. WE HAD TO SEE HIS FACE.

AND THE BACK OF SOME DUDE'S HEAD.

Calhoun seemed a bit overwhelmed by it all.

This is truly astounding stuff.

(h/t @bigtengeeks for capturing this absurdity)

Twitter was, as you can imagine, kind of confused:

There was apparently a better option too...
