"Though I received no official response to these sophisticated and elegant tweets to the Illini Athletic Department, I would like to think that Beckman spent the evening prank calling everyone in Illinois named George McLellan and then ordering an absurd amount of hats off an internet haberdashery to hoard in his home's hat annex."
Michigan will take on South Dakota State at 7:15 pm EST on Thursday, March 21. The VCU-Akron game will follow ours.
EDIT: It will be televised on CBS, and Verne Lundquist and Bill Raftery will be on the call.
EDIT #2: There's a full schedule with times, announcers, and TV listings HERE if anyone wants it.

Today at 6pm is the Men's Selection Sunday event. I thought I'd make a thread about it now because they have already started their bracketology session on ESPN. This thread is to discuss what seed and where Michigan will be playing and to talk about all other teams in or on the bubble.
