Michigan State has been talking about playing a game on a docked aircraft carrier for a while, and it’s finally getting close to becoming a reality. The team they want to challenge on the ship is North Carolina.
Said Michigan’s athletic director, Mark Hollis:
"From our perspective, it would be something where Americans could reach out to those who protect our borders and create a national celebration around it. The school we've been talking to the most is Carolina, because you could tie Magic (Johnson) and Michael Jordan into the game."
This would be so AWESOME! They need to make this happen!!
