March Madness came in like a lamb on Thursday to open the second round of the 2012 NCAA tournament, or round-of-64 to the real fans, but went out like a lion on Friday. In the process, most brackets were destroyed.

Powerhouse programs like Duke, Memphis and Missouri all fell in the second round and the landscape has seismically shifted in the tournament. The round of 32 just became even more interesting.

Huge matchups have been bred from these upsets, but college basketball fans need to be ready for another surge of excitement coming their way. All this college hoops can catch a fan off guard if they’re not careful.

With games like (8) Kansas State vs. (1) Syracuse, (8) Iowa State vs. (1) Kentucky and (12) VCU vs. (4) Indiana on the docket for Saturday, and even more wildness and unpredictability scheduled for Sunday, there is no wonder many sports fans think this is the greatest time of the year.

America has a fever, and the only prescription is more Madness.
