President Obama reveals his bracket for the NCAA Tournament

President Obama reveals his bracket for the NCAA Tournament

There's just one catch: no one has ever successfully guessed every game. I wouldn't hesitate to pick them over SC.

The NCAA's official bracket challenge promises to integrate links to live video streams from the tournament.

Fact: Since the final at-large teams started being sent to Dayton in 2011, at least one team has won two games in the NCAA Tournament each year. Last year, he nailed a number of upsets - most notably Hawaii knocking off fourth-seeded California in the opening round - but he had Villanova, the eventual national champion, losing in the Elite Eight.

NCAA March Madness Live is definitely one of the best March Madness apps out there.

A lot was made of North Carolina getting a No. 1 seed over Duke.

By the second weekend of the tournament, everyone was calling the team dunk city, considering applying to their school (their campus is practically on a beach) and loving their locker room dances.

The 10-member selection committee, comprised of athletic directors and conference commissioners, is responsible for selecting the 36 at-large teams, seeding (or ranking) all 68 teams and placing them in one of four regions within the bracket.

Personally, it took me about 0.5 seconds Sunday to decide on Middle Tennessee over Minnesota.

The selection process is based on a number of factors including win-loss record, strength of schedule and Rating Percentage Index (RPI) data.

Linebacker Hightower returns to Patriots on $43.5M deal
Money wasn't necessarily the reason the Jets dropped out of the Dont'a Hightower sweepstakes after his visit with the team Monday. A source told NJ.com that the Jets were "not comfortable" offering Hightower a deal once they learned of his physical condition.

NC State hires Kevin Keatts as men's basketball coach
They moved quickly with the hiring of Keatts, whose Seahawks lost in the first round of the NCAA Tournament on Thursday. The 44-year-old Keatts will now have to battle against the likes of Duke and North Carolina on a consistent basis.

TBS will also broadcast its fair share of games during March Madness and there's a few different options here as well.

First, a few trends that are worth noting. In the first round, teams are paired according to seed. Maybe a No. 4 seed you think matches up well with a No. 1, or a No. 6 which just might be better than the No. 2 and No. 3 in their eighth of the bracket?

The sixteen teams that advance beyond their first and second-round games are referred to as the "Sweet Sixteen".

The most common Final Four combination?

BUT NOT TOO MANY: No team seeded No. 12 or higher has made a Final Four.

The basketball tournament for university students began in 1939, and with its twists and turns, has become one of the most eagerly anticipated sporting events in the USA, second only to the National Football League post-season. Back in 2016, it was estimated that some 28 million viewers watched the final game. The Badgers beat the Gophers twice on the court and reached the Big Ten Tournament championship game.

Keon Johnson, Winthrop. Another little guy - he's 5-7 - who can score in bunches. OR defeats Ohio State 46-33. And the NCAA has a "boss button" that will allow you to keep an eye on the games at work without tipping off your boss. The Cowboys have lost seven straight in March (1-6 ATS).

And if you're not a fan of college basketball, there are always those great spinoff brackets that happen at this time of year.
