Madness (n): the state of being mad; insanity.

*crumpling up paper, filling out bracket for 87th time*

*looking up*

Oh, hey, Didn't see you there.

So, you may have heard there's this big basketball tournament starting this week. And the rumour is that it gets a little crazy. MAD, even.

This is the one time of the year where pro sports takes a back-seat to the college game, and with good reason.

It's arguably the most exciting few weeks of the sports calendar year and certainly the best time to be working at The Score; we have exclusive Canadian rights, we hype the hell out of it, and deservedly so.

So unless something monumental happens in the Big 4 pro sports scene, don't expect to read anything non-March Madness related till about April. Deal with it.

As for predictions? Well, as communicated above, I really have no idea. This projects to be one of the most unpredictable tourneys in NCAA history, and it's anyone's guess as to who will come out of it.

I do have one admittedly biased pick for you: Texas will beat Minnesota, and then beat Duke. Why? Because fuck Duke, that's why.

Also, what other team's cheerleaders wear chaps? Answer: none.

Enjoy the Madness, hope your brackets don't get busted and good luck in your pools.
