March madness is almost upon us. Brackets will be filled out in offices everywhere when the 65-team field is annouced in a couple of weeks. But before one can fill out their bracket, their team has to either win their confernce tournament or be an at-large. Personally, winning the tournament is a hell of a lot better. I went to all the conference websites and using the tie-breaker systems that they use, I came up with some pretty good brackets (some first and second round games), including the Ivy League, which does not host a tournament.

So let the madness begin! Let the dance begin!
