The 2016 Cougar Madness Tournament




It’s March and that obviously means one thing:

Thunder Treats Cougar Madness Tournament!

We are back for the 8th Annual Cougar Madness Tournament and this year we have the biggest pool of newcomers to the tourney. There are 28 new entries in all and we had to make some very tough decisions on seeding. Obviously, because this is the internet, I know we will get some push back, but remember that you have the power to make your cougar a champion! Sort of.

Here’s how it works for those of you who don’t know. The first two round of Cougar Madness are determined by the actual tournament. If/when overall #1 seed Kansas wins the first round, then overall #1 seed Kate Beckinsale (two-time Cougar Madness champion, btw) will advance as well.

Once there are only 16 teams remaining in the NCAA tournament, there will only be 16 cougars remaining in Cougar Madness. Then it is all up to you. Voting polls will open and close at designated times given when the brackets are updated. It will all culminate with the crowning of the Cougar Champion on Tuesday, April 5th.

Below you will see the bracket which you can click to see full size and print out for everyone in your office (maybe check with HR first? Up to you, though). Below that, you will find all of the match ups in each region for this year.

Be sure to follow us on Twitter for updates throughout the tournament!
