TheOpenThread: First Round Friday

In honor of Big Ed Nelson's birthday, we give you his 2005 classic, "Pickup Truck." Probably not safe for work or children. Anyway, last I heard, Ed was playing professional ball in Argentina, so good on him for doing his thing.

 

After one day, well, my bracket's screwed. I don't want to talk about it.

This is your open thread for the 16 Friday games at various sites around the country. After going 4-2 on day 1 (and losing two higher seeds, #4 Louisville and #6 St. John's), five more Big East teams are in action, and based on the seeds, it would be tough to get more than 3 of those 5.

I don't see many upsets happening today, but that of course means that this is gonna go buck wild. Below the jump, your full TV schedule for today's action. Feel free to join the thread at any time, as I'll be around for most of the day.

Go Sycamores.
