Programming note

Good morning everyone! Finally, games again. It's been way, way too long.

If you're fairly new to these parts, one thing you can look for to hit the site around 2:00 p.m. PDT today is the game thread for today's contest. What's a game thread, you may ask? It's basically a post that previews the game, then acts as a live discussion area for all of us to talk about the contest as it unfolds.

If you haven't noticed, one of the really cool things about SBN is live updating comments. So, if you join us for the thread, you don't have to click refresh to see what other people are saying. Pretty darn neat.

Here is the game thread from the hoops NIT game against St. Mary's if you want to see what one looks like. There are 636 comments, so I wouldn't recommend trying to read all of them, but it should give you an idea of how active the discussion can get. Hope to see you back here sometime after 2 p.m.!
