Yes it would be both games Saturday.... Because the thurs-sat sites are auburn hills, Lexington, Salt Lake City and San Jose.... The Saturday games would likely be 1st up... One at 1pm other at 3.30 ish... If the go with the Lexington games first, game times would be 3 and 5.30 ish....
If you plan on purchasing through Ticketmaster make sure you type in the code, "CAPONESAVE", it will save you $15 per ticket. I ended up getting 3 tickets for all sessions for $135 apiece in the 4th row of the upper bowl, not bad at all.
What, did you buy those months ago?
Just a little over a week ago.
Just bought 2 for all sessions!
I really hope we get placed there. Best case is both us and UM get in and I can sell the UM session for that Thursday. Then go to the Round of 32.

Saturday game times next weekend are:
12, 2:30, 5:00, 6:00, 7:00, 7:30, 8:30, 9:30 (source Matt Sarz sports, and last year).
So you're correct that with the sites as they are, either Auburn Hills or Lexington will get the 12 and 2:30 pair. If AH does not get that, it really could get any of the other three groupings, depending on the match ups and the whims of TV relative to those match ups.
No, those petty little dickheads will show up just to root against us. I've been to a lot of MSU games nationally, and there's ALWAYS some umer d-bag flashing his colors, running his mouth.

It really comes down to what TV wants. They would have no problem tipping a game out west at 11 am if they thought it was a shitty matchup. They've done it before. And Duke always seems to get that showcase noon game.
You guys really think we will be in the same bracket? That seems ridiculous, I would rather we be split up, but am wondering what you all think.

Same bracket? That rule changed years ago with the pod system.

They don't have to be in the same bracket to be in the same location the first weekend. This has been the case for at least five years now. I don't understand how basketball fans can't get that straight.
11am is a straw man. It would be 9am. The site that has the noon game will have the 2:30 game too. Also, Duke is not going to be in Lexington, Auburn Hills, or the west coast sites, so they will be playing Fri and Sunday, not Thurs and Sat.
This will be the 12th year of the pod system.
And next year will be the 13th year where numerous posters have no clue how it works.
There should be a thread up top. This stuff comes up ALL the time this time of year.
1. Pod system explanation
2. How session tickets work and re-entry rule
3. No alcohol allowed at any arena during NCAA events. I don't care that you drank beer at the basketbowl in 2007.
Fuck...I have tickets that I need to sell to michigan fans at the palace
"If you're worried about Wolverine fans, just move to Pasadena. You'll never have to deal with 'em."
Then like me, hope that Palm is correct. That would be even better, ND and UM in the same session at the palace (hopefully the early session). Plus a NICE braket for us!
I would be laughing my butt off if Michigan is moved to SLC or Austin after all of their talk this year.
