March Madness is just about here! We have no idea if our Fighting Illini will make the 68-team field or not, but we can all still enjoy the NCAA Tournament by competing in a bracket group. Last year, we partnered with Yahoo Sports on our quests for perfection, and that’ll continue this Spring!
We’ve renewed the previous pool, meaning participants can once again compete against myself, the other writers, and members of the community under standard scoring rules. This is simply meant for fun, but if the winner opts for it, the top bracket will receive an invitation to our TCR Slack Chat! Nothing special, I know, but that lucky person will be able to joke about Illinois sports with us whenever they want.
Here’s how you can join:
Note: If you participated last year, you should’ve already received an automatic invitation in your inbox — you can click that to sign up again. Otherwise, keep reading.
