Marquette vs. Ohio State: BATTLESHIP Edition?

This morning, ESPN's Andy Katz confirmed what Anonymous Eagle first reported* on Monday: Marquette and Ohio State are trying to set up a game that would be played on the deck of the USS Yorktown in Charleston, South Carolina, on November 9, 2012:

The game would be organized by Morale Entertainment, the same group that set up the USS Carl Vinson game on 11-11-11 between North Carolina and Michigan State.

* What? You don't consider the Admiral's: "Now I've heard rumblings of another game against a big time power conference opponent. Not sure if it's a home & home series or just a one off" line from Monday's Coffee to be an official report on this game? What are you, the Poynter Institute? I'm counting it. WE BROKE THIS STORY. I DEMAND ATTRIBUTION AND TRIBUTE AND A COLLECTION OF YOUR FINEST MEATS AND CHEESES.

Hit the jump and we'll discuss the confirmation of the confirmation of our initial report!

The report from Katz was shortly followed by this tweet from Deputy Athletic Director Mike Broeker:

So unless the Al McGuire Center has been named as the neutral site host for the NBA's Eastern Conference Finals due to Dwyane Wade and the Miami Heat advancing last night, it would seem that Marquette is going to open the 2012-13 season in South Carolina against the Buckeyes on an aircraft carrier. As exciting as that game might be, what I'm REALLY looking forward to is the cross-marketing opportunity for commercials during the game for the DVD & Blu-Ray release of the Liam Neeson action thriller Battleship, just in time for the holidays! After Neeson managed to adapt an entire interesting movie out of one Grandpa Simpson line, I'll watch that dude in ANYTHING.
