We've reached the final step before the Final Four next week in New Orleans. Before we get to the details for the open thread, here's your Elite 8 announcing schedule...
Saturday March 24
West Regional Final: #4 Louisville vs #7 Florida (4:30 ET CBS) - Kevin Harlan, Len Elmore, Reggie Miller
East Regional Final: #1 Syracuse vs #2 Ohio State (7:05 CBS) - Verne Lundquist, Bill Raftery
Sunday March 25
South Regional Final: #1 Kentucky vs #3 Baylor (2:20 CBS) - Jim Nantz, Clark Kellogg
Midwest Regional Final: #1 UNC vs #2 Kansas (5:05 CBS) - Marv Albert, Steve Kerr
We'll have all the nominees from the Sweet 16 for you to vote on tomorrow, and the Elite 8 nominees to follow soon thereafter. I'm hoping Reggie Miller has a strong performance in his last NCAA game of the year so we can get to the full ten nominees for the Elite 8 action! As always, leave us all the announcer and analyst quotes in the comments below or tweet them to us at @awfulannouncing and/or by using the hashtag #BPAA.
