Well, we don't know about you, but we've been sleeping since last Sunday, and it's finally time to wake up; the NCAA Tournament returns this evening. That was enough time for us to recharge our batteries; we needed that long to come to terms with that Illinois loss to Washington.

In case you forgot, we kind of covered the crap out of the tournament last week, and since we have a No. 1 seed to live up to, we're gonna keep it coming for the next couple of days, with all new Tidbits for each Sweet 16 team. It's still the best way we've come up with numb the brain enough to withstand both Billy Packer and Applebee's commercials without uncontrollable sobbing. We hope you enjoy.
