All three things I wanted to see happen on Thursday didn't come through. North Carolina lost, Wichita State lost, and Xavier lost. To make it even worse, West Virginia didn't even make a game of it against Kentucky.
Can we improve on things tonight? I don't know if I really have a rooting interest in any of these games. I will admit that Louisville is fun to watch now that I know that Marquette won't have to square off with them at least once a season, so maybe they can win and keep things rolling for a little bit longer.
Here's your schedule for the night. All times are Central, and the comments sections is yours. Potential discussion idea: Starbucks has a limited edition Birthday Cake frappuccino.
