Thursday, March 12th is Under-rated

Even if you don't get ESPN Full Court, look at the games on free TV in the Washington DC area this afternoon. (I'm sure your area has an equivalent slate of games.)

Local Channel: Virginia Tech vs Miami (Bubble vs Bubble)
ESPN: Providence vs Louisville (Bubble vs Quest for 1 seed)
ESPN2: Baylor vs Kansas (Quality Longshot vs Quest for 1 seed)
BTN: Minnesota vs Northwestern (Bubble vs Quality Longshot)
MASN: Xavier vs St. Louis (If Xavier loses, the bubble gets smaller)

Local Channel: Clemson vs Georgia Tech (No comment)
ESPN: Marquette vs Villanova (McNeal vs Reynolds, Rd 3)
ESPN2: Michigan vs Iowa (Bubble vs Capable)
MASN: St. Joes vs Temple (Philly Rivalry)
CSN: Arizona vs Arizona St. (Bubble and Rivalry)

Oh, and some of you probably have
Kentucky vs Ole Miss (Just watch the Kentucky fans)
Texas vs Kansas St. (Solid vs Bubble)
Georgia vs Mississippi St. (No comment)
BYU vs Air Force (No comment)

To me this is as good if not better than the first day of the NCAA tournament. And even if you don't agree, you can still look forward to the first day of the NCAA tournament in just a week.

No afternoon posts today. I'll be recovering from the Minnesota vs Northwestern game.
