Thoughts on the descent into March Madness

(Editor’s note: A version of this piece has run in The Maine Edge in previous years.)

With so many upsets in college basketball, there seems to be daily highlights of fans storming the court to celebrate.

No team has separated itself from the pack and there have been 15 instances when top-five teams in the Associated Press Top 25 poll lost to unranked squads on the road, according to STATS LLC.

That's led to a lot of postgame mayhem and Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski said it's not all fun and games when it happens.

The descent into (March) madness

It's that time of year again, that time when even the most casual of sports fans (or even non-fans) start paying attention to the wild and wooly world of NCAA hoops. 

That's right, folks. It's tourney time.

You've all seen the NCAA tournament brackets that are essentially ubiquitous following the final selections and seedings that took place over the weekend. Chances are pretty good that even if you don't follow the sport yourself, you know someone who follows college basketball. And there's a solid possibility that that someone, or someone who knows that someone, is putting together a tournament pool.
