The extension to the current deal — for a combined total rights fee of $8.8 billion — will keep the big game at Turner and CBS until 2032. Where does all that loot go? *** If you missed Jim Harbaugh’s rant about the banning of satellite camps, then you missed something. Per usual, he holds nothing back. And, he has many good points. *** A bummer to see Michigan State’s Deyonta Davis leave for the NBA after just
