Tonight on a special Monday DITC: The NCAA Selection Sunday recap show. John in CT, Chris in Syracuse, and Andy in Seattle join Dave to break down all of the brackets for the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament. We'll cover each region one by one, look at the power conferences plus the mid-majors, and deduce what went right AND wrong with the bubble teams. Will Kentucky, Syracuse, or North Carolina be the teams to beat? Is there a greater chance of upsets this year? Can smaller conference teams like Long Beach State, Ohio, and others make a stand? We look at it all as we count our way towards March Madness. PLUS: an update on the "Classic Video Games" Bracket Tournament, including the shocking upset of Super Mario Bros. 3 by Double Dribble, and Random Questions with Kevin on the Cape in Hour 2.
