The Casual Bracket Challenge is Back!

It’s new, and still unimproved for 2021

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! That’s right, ladies and gentlemen - it is finally March. There has been a two year hiatus for the tournament and a six-year hiatus for the Georgetown Hoyas, but the NCAA Tournament gets rolling in three short days, live from Indianapolis. After an dominant run through four Big East Tournament games which were conveniently held at Coach Pat’s house, aka Madison Square Garden or the World’s Most Famous Arena, the team secured themselves a berth for March Madness.

Naturally, that means it’s time for all of you basketball savants aboard the Chu-Chu Train to put aside your delicious gumbo and prove just how much more you know about this game than the rest of the miscreants who regularly read THE GLOBAL PHENOMENON. Reminding others that your knowledge is superior to their own is probably one of Georgetown’s oldest traditions.

What better way to celebrate and meaningful spring basketball for the first time in six years than...a little bit of low-stakes gambling? Sure, that sounds right.

How do you enter?

Click Here to join. The password is: CASUAL. (The name of the group is “Casual Hoya Bracket Challenge” because our brains are too excited to be clever.)

Why should you play?

Stop lying to yourself. You are not doing any (school)work this time of year anyway.

When does it close to new entries?

Picks must be in before the Round of 64 games tip at Noon on Friday, 3/19.

What will you win?

Eternal glory. Bragging rights. Perhaps a Casual Hoya postcard or two, if you’d like.

And don’t forget, your Georgetown Hoyas tip off against the CU Buffaloes at 12:15pm on Saturday for their first round matchup. Get ready.

Hoya Saxa!
