So now we're in the Round of 32, which I'm going to use because referring to this as the Third Round still feels alien and weird to me, even if that's technically true. There is no Ohio State to be found, but that doesn't mean there isn't compelling and awesome basketball to be watched. Hey, Duke lost yesterday, and we got a guy doing the robot in the background. March ain't all bad.
Just like yesterday, the action starts on CBS, with number one overall seed Florida squaring off against Pitt, who just absolutely obliterated Colorado on Thursday. The games will be on CBS, TNT and TBS, so if you don't have TruTV, you're in luck. You're not missing anything today. Except more awesome episodes of SAFECRACKERS.
If you don't have a TV, you can still stream the action online. Just head over to the CBS Sports'/the NCAA's March Madness Live. Simply click this link and fire up a new browser window/tab. Boom. Madness.
Finally, if you're on a bus, running errands, being a responsible adult, etc, and need to catch up on the go, there are also mobile options. CBS Sports has an NCAA March Madness Live app as well, available for iOS devices (your iPhone, your iPad), an Android version, and even a Windows Phone edition this year. If you want to watch basketball today, you have a LOT of options.
We'll be around, so feel free to comment on the action here. Below is the full TV schedule, complete with announcing crews. Enjoy the madness everybody.
