Everyone is also is ready to see some dramatic collegiate hoops. Watch your upset special and gain bragging rights at one of these fine establishments. For the second year in a row, we will most likely see University of Illinois Fighting Illini and Loyola University Ramblers. Last year, the two even faced off and Loyola upset Illinois!

So while you may enter feeling overly confident on your NCAA Men’s Division I Basketball selections, you may leave on day one with your brackets busted. Tis the season for busted brackets.
