3rd time is a charm! Miami in January!
A dream match for me would be UNC at OSU!
Are you sure it's a direct match-up based upon the previous seasons finish? I don't recall them doing the past and I don't remember reading anything stating that was how they would decide matchups. I think they actually try to schedule based upon the predicted strength of that years team. This probably factors in the teams success the previous year in the regular season, any post season success, plus losses from graduation.ScriptOhio said:We finished in 6th place, so it would be their 6th place team.
Which would make it NC State, Maryland, or Miami (all were 7-9 and tied for 6th place), I'm not sure how their tiebreaker works. However, Miami was the 6th seed in their conference tournament.
I'll venture a guess that it will be Miami.
i was merely commenting how duke never plays out of their region.Since Duke was at home last year and OSU played at Clemson it's not impossible Duke would play here. Also their league is strong enough that Duke might project as 2nd or 3rd in the league. I wouldn't count on it though, since we played at Duke a few years ago and I think they try to rotate matchups somewhat. I think we've played Duke, NC St., Ga Tech, and Clemson so those teams might be unlikely. I'll guess Maryland.
