It’s finally here. The Big Dance. March Madness. The NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament.
The regular season was fun. The SEC Tournament featured a Final-Four-like game between two rivals, and the Big Orange won. And Sunday drove home a nice lesson: No Sunday afternoon naps in March.
But as much fun as it’s been, basketball is a tournament sport. Tennessee may not have won a regular season conference championship, and they may not have won a conference tournament, but they have done well positioning themselves for a deep run in the tournament that matters most, earning a 2-seed close to home.
March Madness also means that it’s time to fill out those brackets. When you do, be sure to join the Gameday on Rocky Top 2019 Bracket Challenge. Your reward will be additional entertainment, joy, and — if you win — bragging rights. You’re not going to win any of those major contests with life-changing prizes anyway, so you might as well hang out here, with friends.
So here’s your to-do list:
- Sign up now.
- Come up with a snappy bracket name.
- Make your picks.
Have fun, and Go Vols.
