FRIDAY EVENING NCAA TOURNAMENT OPEN THREAD

LONG DARK NIGHT OF THE DOOK SOUL Mandatory Credit: Bob Donnan-US PRESSWIRE

As I said before: in the interest of not overrunning the site with open threads, we're just going to discuss both the NCAA wrestling and NCAA basketball tournaments in here. If you don't care about wrestling, just ignore those comments. If you don't care about basketball, just ignore those comments. And, lo, we shall all live in harmony. When this thread gets big enough, I'll make a new one.
