March Madness has finally arrived. Selection Sunday is now in the rearview mirror, which means the full 68-team field is set ahead of the 2022 NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament. Not only will millions of Americans tune into the games on TV, but billions of dollars will be wagered on the festivities, as well.
This year’s Big Dance will look a lot more normal than last year’s strange, bubbled edition. A few games had to be canceled because of unfortunate Covid outbreaks last year. While those same rules still apply, here’s hoping all 63 scheduled games go off without a hitch this time. The games get underway on Tuesday and Wednesday with the First Four before the official first round begins on Thursday.
So, you’ve still got plenty of time to get those bets placed and, more importantly, get those brackets filled out. You can win some serious coin if you happen to put together an accurate enough bracket. While there is no tried-and-true way to nail your bracket, the whole endeavor is supposed to be fun, right?
If you’re in desperate need of some funny March Madness bracket names, we’ve got you covered.
How Should I Name My Bracket?
To each their own, of course. One thing is for certain, though. If your bracket is lucky enough to rise to the top of the standings, here’s hoping you gave it a fun, creative name. Nobody wants to see something lame like “Chad’s Bracket” up there. Spice it up a little!
Creativity isn’t everybody’s strong suit, but there are a few casual rules of thumb worth considering when it comes to funny names for March Madness brackets. If you opt to name your bracket after your favorite team, player, or coach, keeping it relevant with a reference to a team, player, or coach participating in this year’s NCAA Tournament is, generally, more fun.
Of course, college basketball has had its fair share of villains over the years. Oddly enough, most of them seem to come from Duke. Anyway, you can also take a trip back in time with your bracket name if that tickles your fancy.
Even if you don’t win your bracket pool, giving your March Madness bracket a funny name will, at the very least, distract everyone else from noticing how terrible your picks were! There is certainly something to be said for that.
