I am a Canadian who has seen almost no basketball. I want to trounce my fiance in our yearly March Madness bracket in a few months, or, barring that, have lots of fun intelligently talking about predictions/rankings/upsets/games with him in February and March. What sites or books should I read for good, regular, in-depth college basketball analysis (or the history of NCAA, or whatever), either (a) now or (b) after I learn what basketball jargon means?

I guess this is why they say don't gamble at work, but in the work pool the top two bracket positions are occupied by two people who haven't paid and ignored messages to pay, though not directed at them specifically. [more inside]
You are not in my pool (YANIMP). Please help me with my bracket. [more inside]
There's the NCAA basketball tournament, of course. And The Morning News' Tournament of Books, and Jezebel's 80s-vs-90s thing. But who else is doing some kind of bracket/tournament thingy this month?
I would like to watch March Madness online. I am even happy to pay NCAA.com the $3.99 they want. But I am not currently in the US. Two questions: 1. If someone in the US purchased a pass for me and then gave me the log-in info, would it work for me to log in overseas? from overseas I am blocked when I try to purchase a pass. 2. Alternatively, if that is not possible, do I have any other options for watching March Madness? Google is proving surprisingly useless.
I don't know anything about college basketball but love filling out brackets. I just filled out a simple one for Morton's in order to try and win a free steak. Does anyone know of any other businesses that doing promotions similar to this? I'd like to see if I can get some free stuff.
To SF MeFites: Where's a good place to catch March Madness today? I particularly want to see the Maryland/Houston game around 6:30 tonight. 'Good' here is defined by cheap beer and the chance to occasionally hear some commentary. Proximity to BART a plus, willing to travel to Oakland.
Why can't I find comprehensive stats on the NCAA Div I? [more inside]
Why is the 5-12 upset so common in the NCAA Tournament? [more inside]
Anyone know of a flexible Excel spreadsheet for managing a pool for a NCAA March Madness tournament? [more inside]
I just heard that my extremely odd online NCAA basketball pool was mentioned on ESPN in the past day or two, except I don't know in what context or on what show. Anyone see it? (more inside) [more inside]
