With 16 games spread over 12 hours on 4 networks, the opening day* of the NCAA Tournament can be a lot to handle. Here's what to expect throughout the day:

2012 Free Bracket Contests

March 5th, 2012
Low on cash? Need a little economic stimulus? Think you know college basketball? Then NCAA Tournament bracket contests are for you. There are contests of all shapes and sizes. Free ones. Expensive ones. Hard to win massive prizes. Easier to win smaller prizes. And then contests that you can set up yourself.

Thursday CBS Coverage Maps: What You'll See

March 15th, 2010
One of the fun but also sometimes frustrating aspects of the NCAA Tournament is that CBS televises multiple games at once. This can lead to some exciting in-game looks at close exciting games, but it also means you might be missing the game you really want to see. CBS released their coverage maps of Thursday's opening round action, and I've linked to the maps for each time-slot below.

  

NCAA First Round Announcer Pairings: Friday

March 15th, 2010
The tournament gets under way with the sweet sounds of Kevin Harlan. The lead Packer/Nantz crew is in Jacksonville so won't be heard from on Thursday.. they're covering Duke like they did last year. Newcomer Spero Dedes along with Bob Wenzel are relegated to the west coast to do the weird 2:30/5:00 time slot.. yet they have perhaps 2 of the most interesting games, where UTEP is a trendy pick over Butler and Murray St is easily the class of the #13 seeds. The Thursday night set of games seems particularly lacking in drama.
