NCAA Men’s Basketball: March Madness Field of 68 Update

We are getting closer to my favorite time of year. Its Awesome Baby with a Capital A to quote the great Dick Vitale. This is my favorite time of year because we get to see conference tournaments where kids lay it all on the line to punch their ticket to the dance. Some of these kids will only get one shot at March Madness and they will give their everything to get a chance to play for the National Championship.
