So, basically, nobody cares. That's what I'm sorta getting from you guys (also, girls). After Cal lost to USF Wednesday night, people's interest in the tourney decreased substantially. I get that. It sucks to barely be in the tourney. And so far, this hasn't been that thrilling of a tourney with minimal upsets (Note: This was written at like 2 PM Friday afternoon before the world of 2 seeds crumbled). Lots of chalk. I can tell, because in the CGB Tourney Pick Em, I decided (this year, at least) to just do Top Picks. So, the fewer upsets there are, the better I do. And I'm hovering right near the top.

But today is a new day and a new opportunity for excitement. Tons of games today, all day. Syracuse, Ohio State, Kentucky, and Baylor are all in action. A full schedule after the jump. GO BEARS!
