The 2014 NCAA tournament is once again upon us! It's obviously not NFL related, but I imagine a lot of us are going to be watching the tournament. Or, at least watching the first couple days when March Madness is at its craziest. If you're watching, make sure and check out SB Nation's full March Madness coverage.
I figured I would set up a thread that we can use throughout the weekend and really the entire tournament. My personal rooting interest is in the American University Eagles. My alma mater is a 15 seed, facing off against the Wisconsin Badgers in Milwaukee. The odds are not good for my Eagles, but maybe they can be Cinderella this year. I'm sure some of you will be rooting for favorites, others for underdogs, but we all can have a good time.
The tournament began with the "First Four" games on Tuesday and Wednesday. Thursday and Friday is now called the second round, but it's the first part of the tournament that matters for the majority of fans. All games are available on TV through CBS, TNT, TBS and truTV, but if you're stuck at work, or don't have cable, you can use NCAA.com's March Madness Live to view games via live stream.
