It's that time of year again where the entire country fills out their brackets and glues themselves to watching college basketball.

Is this even a blip in England's radar? 'Cause it's massive here.

When does the 'bracket' come out? How does the whole format work? 

So, all of the teams are in a conference, so the bracket is released on the Sunday after all of the Conferences championships are completed. I think this should be this upcoming Sunday.

2 ways to get into the tournament

  1. Be Selected by the Committee
  2. Win your Conference Championship

So once all the conference championships are completed, the committee picks the rest of the bracket based on schedule, record, players, history, and try to get the best teams in.

Cheers. Yeah I agree the games are insane, especially the first round upsets.

I have one on Yahoo. Have North Carolina winning it I think

I have always hated UNC for some reason.

My team, Alabama, didn't even make it (really they rarely do though), so I wouldn't mind seeing Oregon win it, or maybe even Gonzaga.

Ha, one of my good friends is a big UNC fan so have a soft spot for them. In college sports I root for MSU and Washington. MSU have had a pretty indifferent year and Washington have been awful, even worse when you factor in they probably have the best player in the country

I went to Alabama we don't do that Basketball thing :D I've also got ties to Arizona State, but they are also not great at Bball, and thus I can't stand Arizona either.

Why do basketball when you have football in fairness. Ugh I don't like Arizona
