Your 2012 NCAA Tournament Day One Open Thread

OH SNAP, they're letting DJO play with two balls? Y'all are screwed.

Today's the day! It's Basketball Christmas! We get to open all of our NCAA tournament presents and find out all the wonderful contents!

As per usual, we've got 16 games running all day long, starting at 11:15am Central time this morning with #6 Murray State and #11 Colorado State. This means we'll already know who the winner of Marquette-BYU will face before they tip that game off.

I debated the best way to organize the list of games and landed on straight up by time. I thought about separating them by network, but that seemed too confusing. I'll just list the network that the game is on right after the game.

Hit the jump for the list and the comments section for your thoughts!
