The NCAA basketball regular season is over, and March Madness is set to begin. That means it’s time for you to join in the fun by completing your NCAA bracket in the annual Bless You Boys bracketology contest. Picks are due by no later than Thursday, March 21 at noon, EDT (i.e. when the games start).

If you were one of the 83 people who participated in the contest last year, you should have received an e-mail with a link inviting you to play this year. If you did not have a bracket last year, or if your invitation got lost in the mail, here is a link to join the fun.

How does it work?

It’s very easy to play. Just click on the name of the team that you think is going to win each game, and don’t forget to fill out every round in the entire bracket. You don’t get to select winners after each round. Just set your bracket at the start and watch your teams go! You may change your picks until the deadline at noon on March 21, but not afterwards.

This year’s tournament features the Michigan State Spartans as the No. 2 seed in the East Region. The Michigan Wolverines are the second seed in the West. The two teams will not play each other unless they both make it to the Final Four. The championship game is on April 8, 2019.

Who is your pick in 2019?
