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.
