Now that the Knicks season is basically over, I can focus on March and doing what I do best: creating the perfect 2016 pregame playlist. The NCAA Tournament is unlike anything of its kind. Fake fans, major fans, and everyone in-between fill out a bracket and sit around a computer streaming games all afternoon. It’s amazing.
Unfortunately, I don’t work for Berkshire Hathaway so Warren Buffett will not be paying me $1 million for the rest of my life, but I do plan on creating a perfect bracket. All jokes aside, this should a great tournament (which I will in fact be streaming from my desk like the rest of you guys). This has been one of the most even seasons in recent memory. Lots and lots of parity among the top tier of college basketball, from top-ranked Kansas and their plethora of stud upperclassmen to No. 14 Maryland and their stable of talented transfers. There isn’t one, two or even three powerhouse teams that are a lock for the Final Four this year. In fact, the four No. 1 seeds this year are going to have a tough time just making it out of the Sweet 16.
Is it the year of Cinderella teams? Who knows. Will a 16-seeded team finally beat a No. 1 seed? Most likely not. One thing is guaranteed, though–we are going to bless you, the fans and the players, with an amazing pregame playlist for this year’s NCAA Tournament. Similar to our pregame playlists in the past, this one will feature rap bangers from artists like Future, French, and even a relatively unknown smash from Macklemore. It is the perfect playlist to get you ready for one of the most exciting times in sports. Whether you are a freshman about to take the court in your first March tournament or you are sitting in your cubicle praying for a miracle upset, this playlist will put you in the right mind frame for insanity.
Major playlist alert. This is a Pregame Playlist for This Year’s NCAA Tournament.
