March Madness 2021 has arrived and the bracket is ready to be filled out with the best teams in college basketball. Who will dominate the NCAA Tournament?
Among the many things that the COVID-19 pandemic took from us over the past year was March Madness. Right before the NCAA Tournament bracket was about to be set on Selection Sunday, it was canceled and college basketball fans were left wanting. But after weathering the current health crisis throughout this season, the 2021 March Madness bracket is ready to be set and played out.
Of course, this year’s NCAA Tournament is going to look much different than in previous years. The most obvious change is that every game will be played in Indianapolis, a single city hosting the entirety of March Madness. Given the utmost importance of health in this instance, though, creating a pseudo bubble makes sense.
Beyond that, this season has been a wild one in college basketball. Not only have the likes of Duke, Kentucky, Michigan State and numerous other blue boods struggled to the point where they may not make the tournament but “new bloods” such as Gonzaga and Baylor have been dominant.
If that weren’t enough, we’ve seen many of the top teams this season — Gonzaga, Baylor and Michigan, just to name a few — have to put their programs on pause due to COVID protocols. Yet, we’re heading towards the NCAA Tournament still. And you need to have your 2021 March Madness bracket ready.

Given what we’ve seen from this season and the strange circumstances under which its been played, the safe money is on either Gonzaga or Baylor running the March Madness bracket gauntlet to win it all.
Of course, the possibility of either 2021 powerhouse losing is what makes the NCAA Tournament so special. From the upsets to the drama — and even with limited fan capacity — this is what college hoops fans live for.
