In light of the cancellation of the 2020 NCAA Basketball Championship tournament, Tagline Sports will be hosting one to help us all still feel the excitement of March Madness, experience the Cinderella stories, and see what team may have been the winner.
I will be using http://www.whatifsports.com to simulate the matchups according to the most recent Bracketology presented by Joe Lunardi. This will last a total of two weeks, going from the First Four to the Final Four & National Championship. While this won’t be a replacement of the tournament, hopefully this can help ease some of the pain that there is with losing the tournament we all love.
The schedule is as follows:
- March 16th: First Four
- March 17th: First Round (Midwest/West)
- March 18th: First Round (East/South)
- March 19th: Second Round (Midwest/West)
- March 20th: Second Round (East/South)
- March 23rd: Sweet Sixteen
- March 24th: Elite Eight
- March 25th: Final Four
- March 26th: National Championship
In preparation for this simulation tournament feel free to fill out the bracket below. Post it in the comments below and let’s see who you would’ve had winning the tournament.
Results of the tournament will be posted on here and on social media (@mjtags11) each day. They will also come with play-by-play analysis so you can relieve the action as it unfolds. I hope that you enjoy this.
