It's NCAA Tournament time!
Here at the Rumble, we know there's no reason to stop watching basketball after a dreadful season. It's a chance to look at other teams and talk about how, realistically, St. John's can emulate those successes. And it's also time for a NCAA Tournament Pick 'Em Pool.
So let's get that out of the way first.
Join the Rumble's Tourney Upside today and start a bracket on Yahoo.
- No, we can't afford prizes, just bragging rights. Some of you all know you love to brag.
- We are going with a seed difference multiplier too, because we love upset picks.
- Each round is worth an increasing number of points (Round of 64 is worth 1 point, A team that wins the Final is worth 6 points).
- And then you get points for the difference between lower and higher seeds if an upset happens and you picked it.
And while we're going that - who are we watching this year?
The St. John's men are home this season, after an 8-24 record and a bunch of blowouts in Chris Mullin's first year.
Most of us are patient about it, since the Red Storm have the most brand-new roster in all of college basketball (judging by the number of returning minutes). And many people have filled out our end of season poll on the Red Storm's performance (still time for you to do so as well!)
So we asked on Twitter - who are we watching? Maybe, if enough people are into a single team (like Seton Hall) we'll take special effort to cover them.
So who are we rooting for in the NCAA Tournament, #sjubb?— Rumble In The Garden (@rumbleSBN) March 14, 2016
Which team is what the Johnnies should realistically aspire to in the rebuild?
Give us your teams, likes, dislikes, and let's watch the Tourney together!
And look out for our team-by-team look at the field, and the schedule of games and announcers - all coming today.
