There’s so much to love about March Madness. The daytime games, the Cinderella stories, the gambling, the fans, and yes even the cheerleaders help to make the NCAA Division 1 Men’s Basketball Tournament one of America’s most cherished unofficial holidays.

Have you filled out your brackets yet? If not, better get to it. You’ve got until Thursday morning (those 4 play-in games on Tuesday don’t really count) before everything closes and you lose your opportunity to blow a week’s worth of lunch money.

The truly bold/rich will completely ignore seedings and analysis and pick their winner according to something that has absolutely nothing to do with stats. Personally, we like to use the cheerleaders as our method of picking who wins. We find that they’re much easier to look at than numbers. Plus, it’s tradition.

So let’s get this dance started. Check out the first round’s matchups and pick the schools/cheerleading squads you think most deserve to make it to the second round in the polls below.
