Finally, the first day of the NCAA Tournament is here! Let's not make this year's stay in the tourney a short one. In 14 of Purdue's last 15 appearances in the NCAA Tourney we have won at least one game, with last year being the only loss. Even then, we had a win for 39 minutes and 59 seconds before that late layup and the overtime period.

Here is your full schedule for today. We'll likely have a separate Open thread up specifically for the Purdue game.
