OPEN GAMETHREAD AND TV SCHEDULE FOR SWEET 16...Thursday Edition

New, 2 comments

Cinderellas and the Big 12 are on life support, but they're still in the game. One of them is guaranteed to advance.

Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

I know, I know. OSU is done. Who cares anymore.

Well I do. I want SOOOOOO BADLY for an unusual suspect to win this damn tournament.

And no, Stanford, that doesn't include you and your idiotic band. I guess I've made it clear I'm rooting for Dayton and San Diego State tonight. Don't care much about the rest.

The action is split between CBS and TBS. Unfortunately (or fortunately?) for "Cinderella," the double digit seeds play each other. In this scenario we are guaranteed a double digit seed getting to the Elite 8. I suppose it's kind of like splitting a winning hand in Blackjack. Stick with what is probably a winner, or split and expose yourself to the possibility of losing both.

I'm all for tournament anarchy at this point, so I wish they were split.

Baylor carries the quickly dwindling hopes of the Big 12 alone this evening, with Iowa State in action on Friday. San Diego State carries the flame for upstarts everywhere as they take on Arizona in the late game.
