Your March Madness Friday Open Thread III

By 11W Staff on March 22, 2013 at 6:48p

We're not going to lie to you. Only one of these four games should be a close one (and thankfully, it's not the one that involves Ohio State).

While we turn the front page over to the Ohio State-Iona game, set to tip at 7:15 p.m. in Dayton, we'll discuss the other matchups here. Those matchups include No. 2 Georgetown vs No. 15 Florida Gulf Coast, No. 8 North Carolina vs No. 9 Villanova (what should be the close one) and No. 3 Florida vs No. 14 Northwestern State.

I did not see Georgetown's current problems (down 7 with 15 min. to go) coming. 

The most "loud mouth, disrespect" poster on 11W.

Exactly how good is this Florida Gulf Coast?  They have the winner of SDSU and Oklahoma.  I think they have a real shot at the sweet 16.
