The best strategies for filling out your March Madness bracket

NCAA file

If you're among one of the many interested in creating a bracket and following your teams through the awesome battle to climb to the top and achieve the championship, then you'll want to hear this.

The Spartans are making their third appearance all-time in the NCAA tournament and first since 2001. If you're competing with half of America, you better get creative. Tell us in the comments, below. Let's get ready for the Madness! Whether it's Tyus Edney or Tyus Jones, Antawn Jamison or JamesOn Curry, Aaron Harrison or Harrison Barnes, the list of players who can claim a piece of NCAA Tournament lore is long and illustrious.

Virginia, the No. 1 seed in the tournament and the No. 1-ranked team in the country, had a tough matchup against No. 9 seed Louisville today.

Well, the time is finally here for everyone to start thinking about their brackets.

Now, we know and the jump for MI basketball was significant, just like it should have been.

"Been there", says Jalen Rose, former National Basketball Association star and member of the University of Michigan's famed Fab Five team of the early 1990s that saw its two Final Four appearances vacated in the wake of a scandal involving payments from a booster (Rose was cleared of wrongdoing). As soon as you thought Kentucky was back or had jelled, does losing by a lot to Florida make a difference in their seed? We could see a number of unique scenarios and champions play out this week.

Sean McManus, chairman of CBS Sports, said the scandal will be discussed during studio segments of the tournament broadcast, but it will mostly be limited during game coverage to if there is a school, coach or player directly affected by the investigation or subsequent news related to the scandal.

Services like DirecTV Now, Hulu Live TV, PlayStation Vue, and Sling TV will offer some combination of March Madness 2018 content. Fans can request to buy tickets for all eight NCAA tournament host sites. CBS Sports boss Sean McManus doesn't think so. This season is no different.

He also pointed out that student-athletes still get a free education while other grads, including some of his supervisors at Turner, are weighed down with college debts.

ESPN has continued to be one of the big dogs when it comes to covering March Madness. It did itself no favors when it lost at home in January to rival St. Mary's - the only other team from the West Coast Conference expected to make the NCAA Tournament - but has gone undefeated since then. "We have to go and take care of business in the tournament, which we haven't won since 1979".

Virginia appears to be the No. 1 overall seed thanks to its terrific showing in ACC play.

What can help the Cornhuskers and Nittany Lions is if the favorites win the automatic bids in the remaining conference tournaments in order to leave as many at-large berths open as possible. While Young and Graham might deliver some of the same heroics, it's by far no guarantee that they'll have all-time NCAA performances, and need to carry their team by themselves to get deep in the tournament. "I got so excited".

Games airing on TBS, TNT, and truTV require a cable/satellite subscription. Can Radford continue their luck? After losing two of three in early January, the Spartans rolled into the Big Ten conference tournament with 13 straight wins before they fell to eventual champion and in-state rival MI. Do they have a chance?
