Announcement Welcome to /r/CollegeBasketball. This is March Madness.
Welcome to /r/CollegeBasketball, everyone!
The clock is winding down on the final month of college basketball and fans are gathering to storm the subreddit, so before that happens we’ve got some important announcements to make:
Firstly, please review our rules, whether you are a long-time poster or just visiting for the tournament. Due to the massive increase in traffic we experience this time of year, we are calling it extra tight on removals and suspensions so make sure you’re playing it clean out there if you don’t want to get ejected for the rest of the season.
If you haven’t already, flair up!

As the referees that you all love to hate, here are a few of our mod teams’ Points of Emphasis:
We’re quick to call a technical foul on incivility. Personal attacks, harassment, flamebait, and trolling will get you ejected and there is a good chance your team gets knocked out before you get back on the court. Matching technicals can also be awarded regardless of who started it.
We are establishing a cylinder rule on bringing up scandals - serious or otherwise - in places where they don’t belong. Serious discussions are for serious threads, not in the heat of a game or argument.
We’ve expanded the restricted arc on spam and self-promotion. Your blog, youtube video, or social media link is going to get removed regardless of its content. You don’t get to advertise in our arena without prior approval.
Gamethreads are handled by /u/cbbBot. Please request gamethreads using the daily Game Thread Index and be patient after games end, the bot takes ~2 minutes to generate the Post Game Thread. Just enough time to type up your witty comments.
We’re putting the press on low-quality text posts, images, and memes. We get absolutely flooded by posts this time of year so in order to maintain a high-quality experience for our users, your post is much more likely to get called for a lane violation. That big win for [your team here] post, the fifth bar graph meme of the day, or screenshot of a 69-69 game probably won’t fly - sorry!
Check to see if your post has already been posted. If someone beat you to it, help us out and delete the post so we don’t have to.
That’s all we’ve got for now. Happy March Madness, everyone!

Mattress Mack offered up to $5K to each FAU player — over $50K total — helping their families and friends travel to the Final Four. The Houston furniture salesman has “embraced” the Owls’ for their underdog story. He even invited them to his suite at the Astros game last night.

Discussion What's the most represented a single state has ever been in the Final Four and Final?
This year two of the four remaining teams are from Florida, with the possibility of having an all-Florida final. This got me thinking: have there ever been any previous all-state finals before? And alternatively, has a state ever had three or four teams in a final four before? I know two out of four has definitely happened previously.
