NCAA Tournament Open Thread – Thursday Second Round

2011f4logoHappy St. Patty’s Day!  Grab yourself a Guinness and have fun with all the action of the NCAA Tournament.  Thankfully, both of my grad school classes were cancelled today and I’m now on Spring Break!  That means 12 hours of couch potatoing it up, watching March Madness, and praying that Belmont and Mizzou come through and get to the Sweet 16.  Here’s the entire schedule of today’s games with announcing assignments, start times, and networks to guide you throughout the day.
