2012 NCAA Tournament: Round 1 Open Thread

It's tournament time, and Sammy Zeglinski has never been happier.

NCAA Tournament Time! Brackets are in and picks are locked. The JV games are over and now it's time to move on to the big show! Let the 2012 iteration of March Madness begin! We've been given a bit of a teaser with the Western Kentucky and BYU games, and if that's any indication of how this tournament plays out, we're in for a heck of a ride.

Here's your open thread to talk about Round 1 (I know it's "Round 2," but come on) games and scout out Virginia's Sweet 16 opponents, the Murray State/Colorado State and Marquette/BYU matchups. Yep, I just went there.

Happy tournament, everybody! It's truly the most wonderful season of all.
