More importantly to some, March is the beginning of March Madness. The annual collegiate tournament sends many into a multi-week basketball frenzy.

Students and teachers alike fill out brackets, analyzing each game for a potential upset bid.

The craze goes so far that some teachers even show the games on their projector screens whilst students do their classwork.

What about this tournament is so intriguing?

Whether it’s putting something on the line, or just a love of the sport of basketball, March Madness truly brings out the crazy in the variety of viewers.
