OK, the wrestlers are taking a break for a few hours, which means we can devote our full attention to the hoopsters(all times CST):

11:15, Tulsa -- (4) Texas vs. (13) Oakland (Marv Albert/Steve Kerr) (CBS)
11:40, Charlotte -- (8) Michigan vs. (9) Tennessee (Nantz/Kellogg) (truTV)
12:40, Chicago -- (2) Notre Dame vs. (15) Akron (Spero Dedes/Bob Wenzel) (TBS)
1:10, Cleveland -- (8) George Mason vs. (9) Villanova (Gus Johnson/Len Elmore) (TNT)

1:45, Tulsa -- (5) Arizona vs. (12) Memphis (Albert/Kerr) (CBS)
2:10, Charlotte -- (1) Duke vs. (16) Hampton (Nantz/Kellogg) (truTV)
3:10, Chicago -- (7) Texas A&M vs. (10) Florida St. (Dedes/Wenzel) (TBS)
3:40, Cleveland -- (1) Ohio St. vs. (16) UTSA (Johnson/Elmore) (TNT)

Gus AND Marv?  CBS is bringing out the big guns today.  Texas tried hard to pull the same chokejob that UCLA (almost) pulled last night, but they hung on.  Meanwhile, in other action, Michigan is beating the Vols by THIRTY POINTS and Notre Dame is in a nail-biter with Akron at halftime.  Dare we dream of a Hampton-esque finish?  Yes.  Yes we do.  DARE WITH US.

The second set of games looks potentially blowout-happy with two 1-seeds going; hopefully the other two games bring the drama.  Florida State's been a popular upset pick and Arizona has a storied tradition of first-round collapses, so there's reason to be optimistic here.

The usual rules of open threading apply here: no porn, no illegal online streams, no slurs, no politics, no religion, and be prudent when posting pics (and for god's sake, use a subject line when you do so that the pics can be hidden).  Game on.
