NCAA Tournament 2012 Schedule And Bracket: Ohio State Will Wrap Up A Full Day Of Action

March Madness is here, and the NCAA tournament tips off on Thursday will a full 16 games on the slate. We are in the second year of the new television deal, which will allow you to watch any game you want across four different networks. The tip times are staggered again this year, giving you little time to take a break from today's non-stop action. The Buckeyes will end your long day, with their tip scheduled for 9:45 pm in Pittsburgh - but as the second game of the night session, expect that one to go off closer to 10:00 pm so make sure you load up on caffeine for dinner.
