I know a lot of you guys are probably tuned out of the Tournament now that Arkansas has been eliminated, but for those who are still interested, of course it resumes tonight and here's some quick comments about tonight's games.

Notre Dame vs Wichita State: The Shockers got their wish by beating up on the Jayhawks last week, so unless they make the Final Four or win the national title, they'll already consider this one of the best years in program history. Will they be able to refocus and re-energized for Notre Dame? I love Gregg Marshall but I'll stick with Notre Dame here.

North Carolina vs Wisconsin: It hasn't been long enough for me to get over losing to North Carolina. I don't want to cheer for them and I'm not going to. So I pick Wisconsin.

Kentucky vs-: Pick Kentucky

Arizona vs Xavier: I think Arizona is really good. I picked them to the Final Four and I'll stick with that, so I'll go with Arizona tonight.

Speaking of brackets, you might not want to listen too much to me as I'm currently ranked 61st out of 99 entries in the Arkansas Fight bracket contest. My highly scientific and well-researched predictions haven't been going that well. But kudos to Hawgmania, who is currently in 1st place after the opening weekend. Check out the standings here.

You can also consider this an open thread for tonight, so, as we've said all year, fire away!
