68 Cheerleading Squads of March Madness 2016

March Madness is the best time of year for us–a website that writes about college, sports, fans, and cheerleaders. We’re guessing you feel pretty much the same.

But while you’re trying to figure out the ins and outs of upset alerts, we’ve been putting together the Frankenstein of March Madness posts: an article so amazing that it full incorporates everything you love about the Big Dance.

It’s a post that we simply call “The 68 Cheerleading Squads of March Madness” and it’s the tournament’s schedule, teams, and cheerleaders all rolled up into one. It gives you a chance to preview the one aspect of the game that neither ESPN or CBS will talk about.

**Unlike most of what you see on other sites, we’ve used a ton of HQ photos from Getty Images. Like 90%. So enjoy, and then check back next week with our updated post.**
