OK, here we go. The thread is open for your discussion pleasure.
No pictures, no trolling, and keep the discussion game-related.
This is a huge game. Get pumped!
Edit: With 200+ comments already and an hour to go before tipoff this has now become the PRE-GAME open thread. A first quarter thread will auto-post at 7:00. The second quarter thread comes at 7:45. The halftime thread will post at 8:15. A final-stretch thread will post at 8:45. You can progress along.
