Mascot Trivia: Clash of the Spartans

NCAA Men's Tournament 2012 March Madness Mascots

Anyone filling out a bracket to include the "First Four" on Tuesday night? I'm not. No offense to the teams playing on Tuesday, but I'm still a tournament-starts-on-Thursday fan.

And I have stuff to do before Tuesday night.

Enjoy the tourney!
