NCAA Tournament Sweet 16 Thursday Open Thread

It's been a long few days, but not as long as they would've been if MSU was still in the tournament.  Sigh.  On a brighter note, Tom Izzo is joining the TBS studio crew for the next two days so at least there's something to look forward to.  Here are tonight's games with my rooting interests in bold:

7:15, CBS: (3) CONNECTICUT vs. (2) San Diego St. -- I still can't root for Steve Fisher, even if it is against a Big East team.

7:27, TBS: (3) BYU vs. (2) Florida -- Two teams that I'm ambivalent towards, but Jimmer's going to make a 30-footer at some point and I'd rather be for it than against it.

9:45, CBS: (5) ARIZONA vs. (1) Duke -- My bracket's already busted, so I have no discernible reason to root for Duke in this game.  Or in perpetuity.

9:57, TBS: (8) BUTLER vs. (4) Wisconsin -- If the Badgers were playing another high-major team there's a chance I could get behind them, but I'm not going to do it while the Bulldogs are still in the tourney.

Enjoy the games everyone.
