AUSTIN, Texas -- Bad weather has made my trip to Michigan State impossible.

So the second game of my three-games-in-three-days trip is off.

I'm stuck in Austin.

Thus, I'll miss tonight's Purdue-Michigan State game, but I'll still be at Duke-North Carolina on Wednesday. The plan is to stay the night here, then fly to UNC early tomorrow. In the meantime, I'll be accepting recommendations on good spots in Austin to watch Purdue-Michigan State, and dreading a 5 a.m. wake-up call that will most certainly be miserable.

Champions and 3rd base downtown are nice if you want the typical "this is what we think a sports bar looks like so we'll manufacture the atmosphere" sports bar.  I prefer The Tavern which has a more homey feel and better local flavor.  If you want gourmet food and lots of cougars walking around, head for Cover 3.

You may have time to try both, as the Carolinas are still dealing with snow today and tomorrow.  Not a lot of snow, but an inch in Carolina is like a foot in Michigan.  (That only works for snow though!)

Third Base is nice, but you should also try Cover 3. It's a bit away from downtown, but a bit nicer and bigger. You can't go wrong either way.

Third Base on 1717 West 6th Street in Downtown Austin is a good Sports Bar
