Funny NCAA Bracket Names 2012

Updated on March 6, 2013

Coming up with a funny or witty NCAA basketball bracket name is almost as much fun as watching the March Madness games and cheering for teams that you know nothing about but picked to go to the Sweet 16 because of a tip you overheard while at the bar doing your "research" for the NCAA tournament. NCAA brackets with the best names have almost as much bragging rights as the people who actually win their pools. At least that's what we all tell ourselves as our brackets are statistically eliminated after the first weekend.

Below is a list of some funny NCAA basketball bracket names that I have come up with, heard of, seen in some of my pools over the years, or saw on a forum at some point. Feel free to add to the list by leaving a comment with your funny NCAA bracket name and show the world that even though you know nothing about college basketball (or at least not as much as the blonde from the office who had her dog make all of her picks), you know enough to get a laugh out of your bracket name.

What's in a Name?

Naming your NCAA bracket really has nothing to do with how you do in your pool. However, NCAA basketball bracket pools are not about the money. Putting together an NCAA bracket is about making each game in the greatest tournament in the world matter to YOU. You have a stake in each game and someone to cheer for, whether or not you have even ever heard of the school they represent. By coming up with a clever name, you are adding to the fun of the NCAA basketball tournament and making your pool that much more fun to be a part of.

So use one of the names from my list or come up with your own creative name and enjoy the best months of the year! As Dicky V would say...It's March Madness Baby!

      Ok, I went to Penn State, and there's zero rivalry with Temple. They're not even in the same conference. Maybe Temple thinks there's a rivalry...but PSU doesn't care about Temple.
