    I have never watched before.

    Do we figure out who we play today or just what seed we will be and where we will be placed?

    Yeah the full bracket is announced, so we see when/where we play and against who, etc.

    Re: I have never watched before.

    The entire bracket is unveiled today. We'll know our seed, our opponent, where we will play, and who we would play if we win the first game.

    We'll know everything today with the possible exception of the game times, but I think we'll know those tonight as well.

    Be ready for an infuriating 20 minutes before they unveil the brackets while they blabber about something or nothing, then unveil the #1 seeds like it's a big surprise to us.

    My own time estimate is that they'll actually start unveiling the brackets around 5:20.

    I'm pretty sure game times are announced too.

    Re: I have never watched before.

    they actually just announce what everyone's seed is, and where they play, but we won't know about the matchups until later.

    was this a serious question?

    Is that a serious statement? They announce the match ups as well. I is confused.

    oh they do? nice. I figured if they didn't announce the matchups, we could just look at what other seeds are announced in the same region as us, crunch some numbers in some sort of database and by process of elimination figure out who we play.

    Re: I have never watched before.

    And after you're done with that you can watch ESPN's Bracketology Special!

    I'll actually watch, but for entertainment purposes only. The last time I took what they had to say seriously I finished dead last in my pool, and for all intents and purposes threw my brackets away on Sunday. The last several years I picked with my own gut (without ESPN's input) and finished near or at the top of my pool. I've learned not to take analysis seriously that strictly follows chalk and ends up with only 1s and 2s in the Final Four.

    I recall last year's bracket being revealed four teams at a time.

    can't wait for the Obama bracket special, that's a lot of chalk. I'm thinking about channeling my inner office lady year, they ALWAYS win. Should I go with what team has the cutest mascot, or which colors I like better?

    this is an instance where a is required to sort out serious business and a lack of intelligence...

    Not a rip on you but we see this confusion all too often on CF..

    I believe that the unveiling of regional games is the best. See who plays who where and what seeds they are. Then move on to the next game site

    Will we know if we're going to wear the white uniforms with the all white helmets?
