NCAA Tournament Open Thread: Thursday Night Sweet 16 Action

(via FunnyorDie)

Hey, the NCAA Tournament's back!  No more pretending to care about NIT games for you!  On tap tonight:

* 6:15pm: #2 San Diego State vs. #3 Connecticut; CBS; Verne Lundquist and Bill Raftery
* 6:27pm: #2 Florida vs. #3 BYU; TBS; Gus Johnson and Len Elmore
* 8:45pm: #1 Duke vs. #5 Arizona; CBS; Verne Lundquist and Bill Raftery
* 8:57pm: #4 Wisconsin vs. #8 Butler; TBS; Gus Johnson and Len Elmore

Gus and JIMMER seems like a potential match made in sports broadcasting heaven.  The Gus crew also gets Butler, who played two of the most exciting games of the first two rounds, with two of the most balls-out insane finishes of the tournament.  Hopefully the Law of Gus inspires a third-straight wacky finish for the Bulldogs.  Other than that, we've got the other one-name wunderkind of the tournament (Kemba) taking on the highest-seeded mid-major left standing (SDSU), plus: DOOK DOOK DOOK.  Kyle Singler has the most punchable face left in the tournament, so if all hell breaks loose and Derrick Williams smacks him in the face, well, he probably couldn't have helped himself.

The usual rules of open threading apply: no porn, no illegal online streams, no slurs, no politics, no religion, yadda yadda yadda.  OHHHH!  THEY'RE IN THE HORSE!
