Come talk about the first session of the best day in sports!

USA TODAY Sports

It's a tradition as old as CougCenter itself: The NCAA tournament open threads. If you're wondering where the whole Buffalo Wild Wings thing at the top of our threads started, look no further.

Here's this morning slate of action. Have at it.


Next Game


Shots of Bryce Drew beating Ole Miss will be shown in the locker room before the game to inspire the Crusaders.



It's our first occurrence of mid-on-mid crime in this tournament. If you like watching well-coached, well-executed basketball in a game that's virtually guaranteed to go to the wire, this is it.


Next Game


There's a chance this is the most physical game of the tournament. That is, until one of these teams faces Gonzaga in the second round.



Tune in to watch a 7-5, 350-pound behemoth who can actually move. I'm not joking.


Next Game


Memphis is probably overrated. So, probably are the Gaels. WHICH IS LESS OVERRATED???



The Wildcats seem to be everyone's trendy upset pick. Take that for what it's worth.


Next Game


COULD THIS BE THE FIRST 16 OVER A 1???



This game will be appointment viewing for me.
