How great is the NCAA tournament? No seriously... HOW GREAT IS THE NCAA TOURNAMENT? Now that the fun has begun, I'm off my high horse on the Big 12 getting hosed, and back to being a simple college hoops fan.

Today we'll see three Big 12 schools play their first games, so come back and discuss any of those games, or any of the other 13 games taking place today.

While KU should roll, the other two games may prove to be interesting. The A&M game is a virtual coin flip and while Texas is highly seeded, they can't overlook the Oakland Grizzlies and big man Keith Benson.

Friday's Big 12 slate of games:

4-seed Texas Longhorns vs. 13-seed Oakland, Mich. Golden Grizzlies
11:15 a.m. CT
CBS

7- seed Texas A&M Aggies vs. 10-seed Florida St. Seminoles
3:10 p.m.  CT
