The Dubsism “Top to Bottom” March Madness Tournament Ranking

In the Dubsism world, this is one of the greatest weeks in all of sports. That’s why the first weekend of the NCAA Tournament is one of the Four Vernal Festivals on the Dubsism Liturgical Calendar. Having said that, let’s just get right to the point.

As part of The Dubsism Dollar Store Double Dribble Basketball Bracket Bonanza, we are offering bonus coverage of this tournament to help you, the bracket-filling public, have a better chance at winning our challenge. As such, sometimes it is hard to tell which is a better basketball team if they have similar seeds. That’s why we decided to do a straight-up “Top to Bottom” ranking of the entire 68-team field.

Let’s be honest, you just want to know who to pick. Not only do we offer this ranking, we’ve gone to the length of breaking these teams down by mascot, because we know sometimes, that’s how these picks get made.

    I see that someone is a little excited about March

      It’s all I’ve got this spring. The Kings and Lakers both suck, the Angles and Twins are “maybes” at best, so this and the AAF is all that’s standing between me and full-blown alcoholism.

    How many Opponents refer to Liberty as “the Flamers” ?
    ( not that there’s anything WRONG with that. )

      I would bet that figures prominently in the trash-talk of their opponents.
