NCAA Tournament 2014 Open Thread: It's Getting Sweeter!

The Wolverines made it to the Sweet 16 again, and we'll find out who will be joining them today.

Welcome to today's open thread, everyone!

Michigan is in the Sweet 16, fans! How frickin' cool is that?! We love this coach and we love this team, and they keep giving us more reasons to love 'em. Yesterday was my first time attending a Michigan basketball game, and it couldn't have gone any damn better.

The tournament isn't over yet, obviously; there are still some quality games out there to be played. Hopefully your bracket isn't so busted that it will prevent you from watching. The West and Midwest are doing pretty well with two 2s and two 4s, but that South and East side of the bracket...1, 4, 7, 11. Yeesh!

I'd like to point out the B1G's scoring on Saturday; Michigan 79, Michigan State 80, and Wisconsin 85. All the other winners? Florida 61, Dayton 55, UConn 77, SDSU 63, and Louisville 66. I just found that to be interesting.

Here are some of the games to keep an eye on today:

- 12 Stephen F. Austin vs 4 UCLA @ 7:10

- 6 North Carolina vs 3 Iowa State @ 5:15

- 1 Wichita State vs 8 Kentucky @ 2:45

Of course, all of us will be keeping a pretty close eye on that 11 Tennesse vs 14 Mercer game, too, won't we? That one's at 6:10.

Thank you to everyone who participated in the game thread yesterday; all of you did a great job. Even though Michigan is already through, you can still hang out here at MnB and talk some trash or root for another team. So sit back, comment like this is the most important thread ever, mind the guidelines, and Go Blue!

Today's tune is brought to you by B.B. King. Happy Sweet 16, everyone!
