March Madness

What is March Madness and how does it work?

March is here, and with it comes the madness. Here's a little rundown on the NCAA tournament for those of you who are feeling a little out of the loop.

Update:

Happy March! And welcome to the madness!

March Madness...what even is that?

If you're reading this, chances are you're a little clueless on what exactly March Madness even means. Well, simply put, it's a men's college basketball tournament (there's a women's as well) hosted by the NCAA.

The whole thing starts with 68 teams, but is quickly whittled down to 64. Once that happens, the rounds begin until there are just four teams left in the "Final Four", when many fairweather fans begin to watch.

What about the brackets?

Filling out a March Madness bracket is just for fun, or at least it should be if you don't want to actually go mad. Chances are extremely low you'll actually predict anything with 100 percent accuracy, so getting as close as you can is as good as it's probably going to get.

If you're still feeling lost or are craving a more detailed description of how everything works and exactly how small those chances are of predicting the winner are (I'll give you a hint...it's a number I can't even write out without having to count the zeroes), read this article.
