This is absolutely awesome, and I wish you could all see the smile on my face right now. Last year, March Madness was stolen from us.
The pandemic unleashed itself in March, the conference tournaments were canceled and March Madness followed.

March Madness just wouldn’t feel the same without fans in the stands. The games are meant to be celebrated with drunk fans going wild.
That’s what college basketball is all about. Bring on the chaos!
