Nah. It gives a yearly show, and it's kind of in the lax between sports. At this point, NBA is getting a little old (until the playoffs start), NFL is over, and the MLB hasn't come full swing yet. It's a very nice pick-me-up when the other sports aren't providing enough of a thrill.

Besides, when else do you get to see crazy upsets like that?

No, that wasn't intentional. But now that I see it, that's awesome.

I have to disagree. Besides the 1st round and the national title game, the in between rounds were boring and mostly chalk emerged (except Syracuse). The national title game salvaged what was an otherwise disappointing tournament, especially considering the wild regular season.

Don't get me wrong, I like NBA better. It's just the virtue of the thing... we can see basketball (some good games) in between other major sports.

Greater than the Super Bowl and WrestleMania.

Debatable. Super Goodell is wrecking havoc to the NFL and Super Bowl, but let's remember as well that Mark Emmert has done stupid things and that the one and done is detrimental to basketball. March Madness has its own officiating gaffs as well, such as the blatantly fixed Duke Wisconsin game in 2015.
