Sports News Without Access, Favor, Or Discretion

It’s that time of year again … time to say rotten, hateful things about every team in the NCAA tournament bracket. And what a bunch of shitty, corrupt teams they are! I don’t think there’s ever been a tournament featuring so many schools that are in the middle of horrifying scandals: Yale, Cal, Oregon … there was even a fucking Mateen Cleaves scandal this week. And I haven’t even gotten to Duke’s general awfulness. THE HATE IS SO VERY STRONG, which means now is the perfect time for a Hater’s Guide Deadcast.

Oh, but we got more! As part of our annual tradition, we also went through this year’s Name of the Year bracket. That’s right: You get two bracket breakdowns for the price of one. LUCKY YOU. If you have any tips you’d like to submit the podcast, just send it in to with the subject line DEADCAST. You can listen to the show here or download it over at the iTunes store.
