March Madness: 2017 NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament Play In- Day 1

Ok, we’re going to try and do this as we have in recent years, publishing results from the previous round and listing the upcoming games. Each team is linked to its home site and record from there so you can see how they’ve performed this season (which is not an indicator of how they’ll do in any particular contest). The Rounds of 64 and 32 are always hectic because they stretch from noonish to after midnight and coverage is on 4 Networks, CBS, TBS, TNT, and True (I refuse to be baited by cutesey trademarkable misspellings), Also there’s the fact the Women’s (far more entertaining) Tournament runs concurrently and you end up with 32 games a day in the first round and 16 a day in the second (That’s 130 in total).

So while I watch a fair amount experience has shown me I can’t attempt to live blog every game and I don’t bother to try any more. Indeed should life intrude as it frequently does I’ll skip days entirely. This is not a trivial effort, it’s the most difficult thing I do technically each year. Consider, I have to look up 132 Teams and their records just to get started.

I also try to enjoy it. If there is a team of interest I’ll provide commentary, you can too. This gets more frequent as the field dwindles. I hope yours do well, I make no apologies for mine.

Tonight we have 2 Play In games on the Men’s side, there will be 2 more tomorrow.
