I think the media is doing a great job with hyping up March Madness and making the fans excited to watch the tournament. March Madness is one of the best events in sports because all 65 teams in the NCAA tournament have an equal chance of winning the National championship.
Every year during March Madness there are always upsets during the tournament and there are always a few teams that make a surprise run at the title. This year during March Madness the media is focusing on how there is no favorite to win the National championship and that it is anyone’s game to win.
Every time someone is asked in media about which team is going to win the NCAA tournament a different answer is given every time. ESPN analyst Stuart Scott said that it is difficult to pick which team is going to win the NCAA tournament because there is no dominate team like there has been in past seasons.
I like that the media is not picking a favorite team to win during March Madness because it is making the fans become more open minded when deciding which team will win. Instead of the fans picking the big schools to win such as Duke, Syracuse, Kentucky, and North Carolina, they are going to pick smaller schools to upset the bigger schools since there is no favorite to win.
The media should continue to keep the fans excited during March Madness by telling them there is not a favorite team to win this year’s title and that every team has a chance to win in this year’s tournament.
