It's the most wonderful time of the year -- the brackets are set, the play-in games are over and March Madness is officially underway! For the next 96 hours, your television will be dominated with college basketball, the world's greatest sport, and March Madness, the world's greatest sporting event.

Virginia gets the day off, which means fans can sit back and breathe easy as they watch the likes of Villanova and NC State see if they can advance past the first rounds. We're all pulling for you, Lafayette. We've always been big fans, after all.

We'll leave this thread up all day as your one-stop shop for hanging out with Hoos fans and yapping at work. Need a place to stream the games online? You've got that here.

Here's today's slate of events, including the TV channels, tip-off times, and announce teams:
