Best team in California? "San Diego Stinkin' State" (to quote former Cal quarterback Dave Barr) takes the floor this morning against North Carolina State in its second-round game.
Happy Friday, CGB. I am sure we were all hoping we would have a Cal game to watch today to kick off the weekend. But South Florida's suffocating defense took care of that, didn't it? Sigh. Speaking for myself, I still haven't quite gotten over Wednesday night's game. I'm talking about physically -- I was in attendance Wednesday in Dayton, I yelled my head off, and my voice is still not all the way back yet as of the time of this writing (Thursday evening). Good thing I am not needed as an oralist today.
We're down to 48 teams left after 16 were eliminated on Thursday. Four more will be eliminated after this morning's games.
Enjoy this morning's games. If you have the day off, good for you! If you don't, just add to the lack of productivity that is normally associated with these first two full days of the NCAA tournament. Full morning schedule after the jump.
