The NCAA Tournament officially tips off Tuesday. Make sure you have your bracket in hand, courtesy of SB Nation.
The bracket for the 2013 NCAA Tournament is set, with the First Four to tip off Tuesday. For the first time since 1977, no team from the state of Texas will be participating, unfortunately. Texas and Texas A&M were both well off the bubble, finishing 16-17 and 18-15 during the 2012-13 season, respectively. Otherwise, this year's tournament should feature all of the zaniness and intrigue of previous iterations.
You can follow all of the action with SB Nation, of course. Brian Floyd was kind of enough to put together an entire March Madness kit, featuring a printable bracket. There will also be .gifs. Lots of .gifs.
The Round of 64 will begin Thursday after the play-in games finish Wednesday. The tournament will run through April 8, with the Final Four to be held in Atlanta. If you're in the Austin area, you can catch first and second round matchups featuring South and East Region teams. The South Region championship will be held at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington.
