With Day 1 NCAA tournament in the books, we've moved on to the second best sports day of the year! The only reason yesterday was better was because it was the first day. Sorry second day, you're just going to have to play second fiddle.

Here's the television schedule so you know what to watch and where to find it on the tube; you can also catch all of the action online at the NCAA's March Madness Live if you have the proper cable subscriptions.

If you're looking for the games that have a solid chance for upset potential, I'd direct you first to Cal-Hawaii, which is a 4/13 matchup that has been everyone's trendy pick. There are a lot of solid reasons for that: Despite playing in the Big West, Hawaii is ranked 60th by kenpom.com (just one spot behind Oregon State); additionally, while Cal is loaded with NBA talent, it's young talent that has been known to drop a turd of a game now and then this season.

A less trendy pick, but perhaps one you should keep an eye on? The 3/14 of West Virginia and Stephen F. Austin. Those don't typically result in upsets, but kenpom.com thinks the Lumberjacks are criminally underseeded, ranking them 33rd (!) nationally. Of course, kenpom.com also thinks the Mountaineers are underseeded, so the site still projects WVU to win 70 percent of the time.

Enjoy it all. Go ahead and use this as your thread for all of today's action.
