2012 NCAA Lacrosse Tournament: Selection Sunday Spectacular!

Or, is it the SeLAXtion Sunday Spectacular? I'm so clever.

Alright, boys and girls. This is it.

At 9:00 P.M. on ESPNU, heads in suits and ties will tell you which 16 teams will throw hands over the next three weekends to determine which school will have the best post-game burgers and dogs spread at Gillette Stadium on Memorial Monday. Depending on your particular preference in college lacrosse teams, these are either good times, people.

This has been, without a doubt, the most bonkers 60 days of college lacrosse that I have ever seen. While it has been crazy pants fun to watch, the chaos theory has created a bit of a problem: Outside of the seven automatic invitees to the NCAA Tournament -- three of which (Canisius, Syracuse, and Yale) were barely even on Planet Relevance a month ago -- there is a logjam of about eight teams looking for favor within five at-large spots. There are going to be some pretty good teams left at home to work on their novels or something, and actually seeding this field may be the most difficult thing in the world not involving the discovery of time travel.

Regardless of all the yammering and hand-smashing, we're getting a 16-team field tonight. All I know is that Wagner isn't included in anyone's projections, which tells me that society doesn't have a sense of humor.

This is your open thread for the bracket reveal. Make all the noise that your little heart desires. College Crosse will have a bracket for you shortly after ESPNU finishes crushing some souls.
