Shortcuts to Mastering the March Madness
Unless you have been living under a rock, and said rock is located deep in the Himalayas, you are likely aware we are already half through March Madness. Yes, the glorious sporting event that steals the attention of all men leaving their wives, girlfriends, moms (you get it) wondering where they have all disappeared to during the month March is in full swing.
Chances are, you are only reading this post because you have momentarily stepped away from scanning (and analyzing) your NCAA tournament bracket. If not, I’d be willing to bet there is a short degree of separation between you and someone cheering on one of the 68 college basketball team as they battle in the holy grail of tournaments.
Should you be the rare case, and not have your trusty March Madness Survival Guide accessible, check out our shortcuts below. In no time, you will find yourself immersed into the American sporting phenomenon, we call March Madness.
HOW IT WORKS: A simple “March Madness” web search will lead you down a clickbait black hole with luring discussion panels, hot topics, prediction strategies, and even voodoo practices related to the tournament. Want a layman’s breakdown of all the madness? Check out: March Madness Explained
BREAKING BRACKET: If you consider yourself the authority in Bracketology, it may interest you, the odds of miraculously filling-out a perfect tournament bracket are 1 in 9.2 Quintillion. Meaning, you are more likely to become a gold-dripping Pro Basketball player or die from an Asteroid impact than picking the tournament game winners perfectly. Yet, each year, millions of people reject these odds and spend countless hours methodically perfecting their tournament picks, which many would consider a part of their identity. Check out, Brackets For Dummies and you will have a headstart on next year’s tournament. Just think, you could be on your way to being the Heisenberg of NCAA Bracket picking for next year’s tournament.
KEEP YOUR EYE ON: With the Sweet Sixteen underway, having to study the remaining teams just got a whole lot easier from 68 teams. Before you throw in the towel thinking there is any studying actual involved, understand it’s highly likely any tournament talk you will encounter will be focused on the remaining sixteen contenders down from the original 68 teams.
Lucky for us, SportingNews has done the work clearly backs it up with the “Why” for each placement of the Sweet Sixteen.
