Finally, the NCAA Tournament is about to be back in action. It is hard to go cold turkey after four glorious days of head-spinning madness.

Half of the Elite Eight will be settled today. The Connecticut Huskies and San Diego State Aztecs will get us started at 7:15 p.m. EST.

That is exactly three hours, 27 minutes and 15 seconds away from the moment I typed seconds—not that I am counting.

The Huskies-Aztecs game will hold center stage for a brisk 12 minutes before our attention is Jimmered away to the BYU-Florida game. At the conclusion of those games, Arizona will take on Duke and Butler will face Wisconsin to wrap up the evening's festivities.

Not to be outdone, it appears Danica Patrick is still not real thrilled with the contact initiated by Ryan Truex last week at Bristol that knocked her out of the race.

Stay with us as we'll have more on her, certainly more on the NCAA Tournament and anything else that happens in this sports universe on the last day before Friday.
