The NCAA tournament selection committee apparently has a sense of humor. The 2012 NCAA bracket came out on Sunday evening, and it was revealed that Michigan will take on Ohio in the second round of the tournament.
The hilariousness of this matchup stems from the fact that Michigan coaches have been referring to Ohio State as simply "Ohio." Michigan football coach Brady Hoke started the trend, and it caught on throughout the athletic department. Ohio head coach John Groce actually called the reference "disrespectful," so this matchup should be interesting for reasons both on and off the court.
This game will take place on Friday in Nashville. The start time and TV details were released on Sunday night, and you can check out all the details for the game below.

Game date/time: Friday, March 16, 7:20 p.m. ET
