I was there, is this the triple OT thriller? I've been to over 20 Michigan basketball games and the only L on my record is Michigan State in Indianapolis.

Thank god I didn't go to eastern or smu last year. Had tickets and didn't go because of work.

Not sure, I was gonna get them from one of my friends who is at NC State currently, since I just graduated from there and I have my student ID still valid. They have a lottery based system for student tickets, and they are all free.

Lame. But I get it. Plus NC State, if they continue their post-season success from last year, will end up a good team even though it doesn't appear a sexy match up right now.

This is exactly what I hoped for!  I'm moving to Raleigh in June so I'm getting tickets for sure.  Look for me, I'll be the one wearing all Maize and Blue.

playing NC State in the challenge - second time at NC State.

Oddest matchup to me - Wisconsin at Syracuse.   Final four team vs 9-9 ACC team...  Not sure how good Wisconsin will be next year, and it's at Syracuse, but not set up as a clash of the titans.

If Wisconsin can be anything near what they were this past season and for several before that, this game would tend to sound more like, "Alright, Syracuse, go to your corner and when the bell rings, Wisconsin will come over and suck the life out of you..."

In these early season games, I like it when the matchups are solid teams but one's where we're not a heavy underdog.  NC State should be a very even matchup since they went to the sweet 16 last year and are returning a lot of talent.  This season is stacking up nicely with Xavier and SMU and the other tournament.  It doesn't have the sex appeal of Duke, UNC, or Louisville, but given this past season, Michigan would not be ready to take on those guys at this point in the year (in my humble opinion).  NC State is winnable.

I'd love to see us play Notre Dame at some point.  Louisville would be cool just because it was the title game a couple years back.

That said, NC State is a good team.  It's not a terrible matchup.
