Big Ten Tournament Saturday Results and Open Thread

"It’s time to go. You can only train so much and then – there’s a lot of analogies you can use – you’ve got to let the horse run, let the lion hunt, let the sniper zero in."

-- Tom Brands, from Andy Hamilton's blog

Session I (including both the first-round "pigtail" matches and the quarterfinal matches) begins at 10am CST.  No TV coverage or online streams, so you'll have to make do with radio coverage (KXIC if you're in or around Iowa City; Hawkeye All-Access ($) via the intewebs otherwise) or liveblogs/Twitter updates.  Liveblogs: Andy Hamilton at Hawk Central; KJ Pilcher at the Gazoo.  Twitter: (P-C) Andy_Hamilton, (Gazoo) kjpilcher, (DI) jtbugos and rcyou, and bigtenchamps.
