The sports scoreboard on DirectTV indicates that Hawks vs Hornets is on ESPN, but it is showing a college game instead. WTF.

I am currently reliving my childhood and watching DePaul basketball

This is fantastic! I don't remember this happening. Do any of you old timers remember when the Milwaukee Brewers played a game against the..uhh...Milwaukee Brewers?

Don't remember that game, but I do remember that DePaul was once coached by Joey Meyer and the Brewers once had a player named Joey Meyer.

Cue the spooky theremin music.

Also, why would NoMich be looking for NBA action when ESPN was broadcasting a Tar Heels - Wolverines basketball game?

Added bonus: the courtside presence of Dick "I'm gonna make him an offer he can't refuse" Vitale.

Seeing those two teams square off always triggers memories of the historic moment when time stood still.

'Cause I sucked into nostalgic trip by watching that damn DePaul game. They squeaked past a Cleveland State team. What was I thinking? And by the time I tuned in the Michigan/Carolina game, it wasn't much of a game anymore. "Daggum it," was all that coach Roy could say until 6:00 this morning
