Vanderbilt is taking on Michigan this week in the College World Series, and Paul Finebaum has made his choice. And if you thought Finebaum was going to pick anyone other than Vanderbilt then you've clearly never watched his show before.

But Finebaum is looking to make the College World Series even more interesting this year, and he's called out Michigan football head coach Jim Harbaugh to help. Taking to Twitter on Monday, Finebaum presented a wager to Harbaugh.

Finebaum wagered that if Michigan wins, he'd wear a Charles Woodson Michigan jersey at a Wolverines practice. But if Harbaugh loses, he has to serve as an "SEC water carrier" for a day.

The "SEC water carrier" part was a clear dig at a Tweet Harbaugh made two years ago, calling out Finebaum for being an "unabashed SEC water carrier."

Based on the image Finebaum used in the picture, it would seem he wants Harbaugh to carry water for him for a day during one of his shows or some other occasion.

As for the College World Series itself, Vanderbilt is a narrow favorite heading into Game 1 later today, and is seeking its second College World Series title since 2014. The Wolverines are seeking their first title since 1962.

There's no word yet on if Harbaugh will accept the wager.
