After all the excitement of the first weekend, things have settled down a bit. Only two double digit seeds made the Sweet Sixteen, and both will face each other on Friday night. All four #1 seeds are still with us, so anyone with a chalk Final Four in their b bracket can breathe easy for now.
The Big Ten has three teams alive, though I suspect I'm not the only person who'd be content with just Indiana and Maryland. There are still multiple "hate worthy" teams in the mix if schadenfreude rooting is your thing.
Consider this your open thread for Thursday and Friday. Go Notre Dame. /shudders
