The most fun part of March Madness?
Watching your perfectly constructed brackets fall apart...in person.
Regardless of whether disaster strikes in the Emerald City, we should have pretty good first and second round games here in sunny Seattle.
I will be providing live updates of the games in the comments here and hopefully our two readers will join as well. If you're not by a computer of some sort, you can always connect with your mobile device via mobile.swishappeal.com.
Texas A&M vs. Portland St. 5 p.m. ESPN2
Gonzaga vs. UNC 7:30 p.m.
If you just can't wait until game time to start immersing yourself in Seattle-madness, you can find links to all of our pre-tournament analysis and prognostications (some of which have already been debunked) after the jump.
- Queenie kicked us off with her capsules of every single automatic bid, including Seattle sub-regional teams Gonzaga, Portland State, and Texas A&M.
- Freelantz has some additional insights on Texas A&M and every other Big 12 team in the tournament.
- I posted some reflections on Gonzaga and North Carolina from media day news conferences and open practices earlier.
- For a look at the entire Sacramento region, including more on Texas A&M in particular and their chances to topple the three-headed monster of Stanford, click here.
- Speaking of the Sacramento region, Freelantz has also provided insight about Oklahoma State.
- For info on those other regions, check here (Dayton) and here (Kansas City).
- Notice the lack of Memphis region analysis? It's true, so here's a thought -- that region might have the least upsets of any if you go by the statistics. Of course, things never pan out as the committee planned, so that will still be fun to track.
All-in-all, it should be fun and to say I can't wait for the games here at Bank of America Arena to actually start is probably an understatement.
