Bracketologists around the country can take a rest for the next 9 months as the 2011 NCAA Tournament Bracket has been released. The Villanova Wildcats were announced as a 9-seed in the East Region, with their first round opponent being the George Mason Patriots. The game will be played on Friday in Cleveland, Ohio. Times have yet to be announced.

And because we love you so much, we've already got the printable 2011 NCAA bracket ready and waiting for you!

This printable bracket is the best because it also contains a link to all the blogs covering each team so when you begin to start making your bracket picks, you'll have in-depth coverage of all the participating teams to help you take home that NCAA pool you participate in with friends and co-workers.

We'll have more in-depth coverage in the coming days of Villanova's opponent, but for now, we'll leave this as your Open Thread to discuss the implications of this bracket, and how far you think Villanova can go in The Dance.
