Dear Bracket Attack Qualifiers:
As you are well aware, the coronavirus pandemic has wreaked havoc on the sports world, canceling or postponing every collegiate and professional event, including the NCAA Tournament.
For this reason, 1650 the Fan has decided to host ‘Bracket Attack 2020 – Mayhem Edition’ in lieu of the original Bracket Attack.
‘Mayhem Version’ still holds all the elements of the original game – only all games will be virtual.
Our selection show will be aired during Maximum Mornings on March 23. Each qualifier will be seeded in the bracket by random draw.
We encourage you to reply with a personalized (clean) team name by Monday at 10 a.m. If we do not receive a team name, your team will simply be your name and city.
Here’s how the games will work:
- Each round will be virtually played with the winner of each game being determined by dice roll. A pair of dice will be rolled, if the combination equals 5,6,7,8,9,10, the higher seeded team will advance. If 2,3,4,11,or 12 is rolled, the lower seeded team will upset the higher seeded team and advance.
- Games will be recapped during a special ‘Bracket Attack – Mayhem Version’ report that will air during Maximum Mornings (6-8a) and Cole & Company (5-6p).
- Round of 64 games will be recapped on-air, March 24-27.
- Round of 32 and Sweet 16 games will be recapped on-air March 30-April 3.
- Elite 8 and Final 4 games will be recapped April 6-8 and the Championship recap will be heard twice during Maximum Mornings and once during Cole & Company on April 9!
Thank you for being a part of Bracket Attack!
