Yogi! Peyton! 

IU will play KY, Manning comes home

First, hoops: So how's your bracket today?

IU rolled (despite some passes that actually made Tom Crean's nonexistent eyebrows shoot through his hairline) and Butler knocked off Texas Tech. The Boilers ... oh, man.

Take it away, FOXSports.com!

Notre Dame plays Michigan tonight. But more importantly: IT'S IU/KENTUCKY IN ROUND TWO.

On a personal note, Yours Truly entered the Purdue matchup with a bracket ranked No. 1 among all ESPN participants (OK, a LOT of entrants were ranked first, but damned if I didn't pick Yale to tally the upset), and the Little Rock takedown of the black and gold dropped my bracket to 1,069,370th place. Nifty!

Meanwhile, Peyton Manning will be appearing at the Colts complex today to be honored by his former team. He can't officially retire from the Horseshoe just now, as CBS Sports notes:
Manning won't officially be retiring as a Colt though because he's on the Broncos' reserve/retired list, which means Denver owns his NFL rights.
(Here's hoping some kind of deal's been cut.)
