NCAA Tourney Open Thread: Elite Eight Day 1

2010 Tournament runner-up and 8-seed Butler, who wiped Wisconsin off the map in the last round, takes on a formidable Florida squad that vanquished the Bruins in the round of 32. In the late game, Arizona looks to continue its roll after dominating Duke in the Sweet 16, now facing Kemba Walker and the UConn Huskies. Can UConn coach Jim Calhoun get a couple more games in before his suspension?

Since I can't be bothered to click on my Tivo onscreen guide, what time do the games start today?

We won't have that little fucker Fredette to kick around any more - I really liked making fun of his lame name,

I'm watching this AZ v UConn matchup now. I'm rooting for the team closest to the Best Coast.

Props to Josh for answering my post within ten minutes; it's like I put out a Bat signal or something. Or a Bart signal.

Where oh where will I have an outlet to post my masterful insight on NCAA Tourney Elite Eight Day 2?

Meanwhile, great Onion headline I just saw:
