The 2015 Cougar Madness Tournament




It’s finally the best time of the year! Yeah, the NCAA Tournament is about to get underway but, more importantly, so is the 2015 Cougar Madness Tournament!

The Cougar Madness Tournament is now in its seventh year and this year, though we say it every year, may be our best ever. Our number one seeds feature two rookies and two past winners. It really is the perfect balance.

To be fair, we seeded and put the bracket together before we actually knew how the NCAA teams were seeded.

The number one overall seed, coming out of the Midwest Region, is Penelope Cruz. Yes, she is a rookie and it is a high honor, but she should be just fine wearing that heavy crown. Below her in the West Region is 2014 Cougar Champion Kate Beckinsale. Isn’t that how she should be introduced at award shows? Beckinsale is trying to be the first ever back-to-back champion in tournament history.

On the other side of the bracket is America’s sweetheart and 2013 Cougar Champion Julie Bowen representing the East Region. Below her in the South Region is newcomer to the tournament, Victoria Beckham.

Below is the official 2015 Cougar Madness Tournament bracket and below that is all of the match ups because I know how much you guys love a visual aid.

Quickly, here are the rules:

  • The first two rounds of the Cougar Madness Tournament will be determined by the actual NCAA Tournament. So if Kentucky loses in the first round (ha), then Penelope Cruz will exit the tournament as well. And so on and so forth. Get it? Good.
  • After the first two rounds, fan voting will open for the Sexy 16, Erotic Eight and the Fantasy Four. The deadlines to vote will be announced with each rounds article. So lock it in or follow us on Twitter for tournament updates.
  • Once we have two final Cougars, fan voting will open up once more and will commence when a National Champion is named. An article announcing the winner of the 2015 Cougar Madness Tournament will follow shortly there after.

Enjoy and be sure to print out your bracket and follow along! Who ya got?!
