So, definitely not going to all the trouble from yesterday about previewing the games and linking the blogs involved, since I don't think very many people read that post.  Sorry.  If you want to see each one, you can click on the team name above and go to their profile page, then get to the blog from there.  I will choose my winners briefly: Michigan, Iowa State, Louisville, and Michigan State.  I'm taking all favorites (I think) except Michigan State.

Iowa State and our friends over at WideRightNattyLite are now carrying the Big 12 banner, so I'm rooting for them.  As for Pitino vs. Calipari, it's definitely a "lesser of two evils" situation with the added element of screw the SEC.  Same goes for Michigan vs. Tennessee, really.  I'd like it if all the SEC teams that could, lose.
