Not sure it's gonna happen unless the ADs start hiring better coaches. This basketball rejuvenation is because Michigan hired Beilein, OSU hired a guy like Matta, Purdue brought in Painter, and Indiana brought in Crean. Add in the established guys such as Izzo and Ryan, and that's why the leaugue is elite. If football wants to match it, then teams like Illinois, Purdue, and Minneosta are going to have to improbe the quality of coach they bring in (Or we could just dilute with Marylnd/Rutgers BIG TENNNNN)

I'm stuck in grad school class tonight from 630-930 central time so I'll miss the whole game without the stream.  Appreciate the link!

I hope we can run NCST ragged, they don't seem to have a lot of depth to their rotation compared to ours, so if we play a little bit uptempo we should be able to run them off the floor. 

I'm predicting a 17 point win for us. 78-61.

Make no mistake, NC State is a very good team.  They shot poorly against a damn good Oklahoma State team and putzed around against UNC-Asheville, but this team is gonna bring it.

Burke, Hardaway, and GRIII need to be physical and get the offense going early by attacking the basket and setting the tone physically.
