To get March Madness started, Campus Insiders took a look at the Conference tournament week best games of the day in each of the power conferences for Friday.
The NCAA Tournament earned $1.15 billion in ad revenue last year and you can expect this year’s event will be even bigger, as in Texas style big. The Final Four is going to be played inside the magnificent AT&T Stadium located in Arlington, Texas, and home to the Dallas Cowboys and Ultra Sports Techie owner, Jerry Jones.
So besides spending the next three weeks watching CBS, TBS, TNT and TruTV on TV or via the AT&T co-sponsored NCAA March Madness Live app that is streaming 150 hours of live video on both Windows and Android app versions, Campus Insiders is your free digital huckleberry. If you want to have some semblance of a chance to win the one billion dollar payout by Yahoo and Warren Buffet, or the $15,000 prize by Intel and Kaggle, get started with 68 for 60 by Campus Insiders.
My tip to you all is that I usually pick the Michigan State Spartans to make the Final Four and year after year they either make it or get very close, this year will be no exception.
