It's the most wonderful time of the year ... Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Oh yeah, and Happy March Madness! Sixty-four teams not named Boston College will try to make it to Houston and cut down the nets on April 4. Leave your thoughts on the day's Tournament action below, or use the opportunity to discuss the following topics:

- Last night, did VCU prove the doubters wrong or did USC prove the doubters right?
- How will Clemson perform after its 36 hour Dayton-to-Tampa road trip?
- Who are your tournament dark horses?
- How many Final Four teams will come from the Big East? All of them? 
- Best Irish pub in Boston?
