Inaugural Dads In The Game March Madness Pool

Selection Sunday is fast approaching and March Madness begins Tuesday.  This year’s tournament is looking to be a great one.  I am excited!  Not only does March Madness 2013 mark the 75th year of the NCAA men’s basketball tournament, but parity has been a major story line this year.  Indiana, Duke, Louisville, Michigan, and Gonzaga have all been #1 in the AP Top 25.  Nobody appears to be a clear cut favorite.  Along with those teams, 23 others have been ranked in the Top 10 this year, including Kentucky, Ohio State, North Carolina State, Kansas, Syracuse, Florida, NorthCarolina, Arizona, Illinois, Missouri, Cincinnati, Minnesota, Butler, Oregon, Miami (FL), Michigan State, Kansas State, and Georgetown.

With such a great tournament anticipated this year, we have decided to host a pool.  It's free to join and we invite you to submit a bracket and be crowned Dads In The Game’s March Madness Champ!  The winner will be enshrined on our blog and have the opportunity to contribute predictions for next year's tournament!!
