Social Media’s March Madness Winner

Tom-Izzo-cutting-down-the-nets

As famous as Selection Sunday has become in America, the day that follows is almost just as popular. Coined by some as “Bracket Monday,” the day following Selection Sunday is filled with over-analyzing college basketball seasons and thousands brackets filled out across the country. In what is looked upon as one of the most open pools in recent years, it appears as if anyone can put together a six game winning streak and make a run to the championship.

On Monday, we took to social media to see who our followers thought would be crowned champions in early April. Here’s what we found:

Michigan_State_Spartans

It’s hard to hard to bet against a Tom Izzo coached Michigan State team in March, and it appears our followers are smart enough to know so. Izzo has led the Spartans to seven Final Four appearances in 19 NCAA bids, including one last season in Indianapolis. Will the Spartans win the extra two games it could not last year? Or will one of these other teams knock them off in the process. Only time will tell. One thing is for sure though, it should be another exciting three weeks! Let the madness begin…
