Sometimes when I’m not sure what to do at work (other than my job), I throw out a question to all you fine folks, just to see what you have to say.
Tuesday morning, I did just that:
What's the most bonkers prediction you're actually willing to attach your name to for this season?— Mid-Major Madness (@mid_madness) September 19, 2017
You guys never let me down.
Your responses ranged from the not-entirely-insane:

Here’s a sample of your tweets, compiled solely so I can hold you accountable come March.
