2011 NCAA Tournament Second (But Really First) Round: Thursday Open Thread

Welcome to March, folks! It may already be the 17th, but to us, the month is just beginning. Today, sixty-four teams not named Virginia Tech will compete in the biggest baddest sporting event in the world (yeah I said it, you crazy footballers) to be named WORLD CHAMPIONS. Wait. What's that? Oh. NATIONAL CHAMPIONS.

The Open Thread is up for you to discuss any of the following topics:

  • Morehead State over Louisville...odds greater than 33%?
  • Today will be the day most filled with upsets. Discuss.
  • Virginia's chances of making the tournament next year?
  • How many brackets did you make and submit this year? Over/Under for America is, I'd say, 3.5.
  • Is it possible that the racially-ambivalent Cav Man is part Irish?
