Arizona’s Morning News, Mac & Gaydos square off in March Madness brackets

Mar 28, 2016, 1:23 PM | Updated: 1:29 pm

March Madness.

The time of year when offices come together. Employees stand at the water cooler and talk about the usuals — Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan State, North Carolina. And then also the little guys — Wichita State, VCU and the fighting Mocs from Tennessee-Chattanooga.

At KTAR News 92.3 FM, we have dueling shows: Arizona’s Morning News team of Jayme West and Jim Sharpe against Mac & Gaydos.

For years, Jayme has picked games in the strangest of ways — typically going by colors, school mascots and sometimes their location.

This year, Mac & Gaydos are trying to out-Jayme Jayme! Jim did enter the picture and give a little help, so it wasn’t just all colors and mascots.

And oh yeah, the loser has to do an hour of their show with a Burmese Python. Kaa, from Wildlife World Zoo, will be set loose in the studio during the losing team’s show sometime in early April.

The newsroom might be a little more wild than it typically is that day.

In the first episode, everyone made their picks. It was all fun and hope.

Then the Madness happened.

So many teams have fallen victim to upsets — including the Arizona Wildcats — that it seems everyone’s bracket is all out of whack. Well, unless you somehow managed to call Syracuse’s deep run in the tournament.

The way the brackets stand, if Syracuse can manage to beat North Carolina, our prestigious hosts may manage to tie. We’re working on a tiebreaker scenario as we speak.

If you want to keep track, be sure to tune in to the games this weekend. The fun starts Thursday at 3 p.m., when Oklahoma plays Villanova, followed by North Carolina and Syracuse.
