TOURNEY WATCH: 3/25/12 (NCAA Open Thread)

Big Blue vs. Neon Green gets us started today. Should be an AAU coach's dream game!

Two games, two Big 12 teams, two spots still available in the Final Four. And, oh, what a conundrum lies before us.

Do we root for our Big 12 brethren in order to strengthen the conference — though they be fluorescent, cloying Baylor and hated, unworthy Kansas? It's not like it behooves us for either program to experience more success.

Or do we root for their opposition, thus continuing the Big 12's recent streak of falling short in the Elite Eight — and, by extension, propelling two of the most insufferable coaches and fan bases of all time into the Final Four instead?

Choices, choices...
