Another college basketball aircraft carrier game will be played this upcoming season, per a report. 

According to college basketball insider Jon Rothstein, Gonzaga and Michigan State are in advanced discussions about playing a neutral-site game on Veteran's Day. 

If finalized, the game will be played on an aircraft carrier. 

"NEWS: Gonzaga and Michigan State are in advanced discussions to play a neutral site game on an aircraft carrier in San Diego on Veterans Day (11/11), according to multiple sources," said Rothstein.

The last time an aircraft carrier game was played, players and fans couldn't stop complaining about condensation on the court. 

Hopefully college basketball finds a way to decrease court slippage. 

'everyone loved Top Gun so what if we re-did that, only with unplayable basketball?' one fan said.

"I am once again BEGGING @MSU_Basketball not to lose one of these games. Please god can we win a showcase event," a fan pleaded.

"Only way this idea should have returned (if at all) was in the NBA, in conjunction with a certain movie release. Top Gun: Mavericks," one fan wrote. 

"remember when they tried this like a decade or so ago and it was a hilarious disaster?," a fan commented. 

The last time an aircraft carrier game was played it was a pretty incredible scene, but didn't make for the best basketball. 

Hopefully this time is different.
