The NCAA is the commonly used, abbreviated name representing the National Collegiate Athletic Association, but to most people the NCAA means college basketball. Specifically, it means March Madness.

Each spring, the NCAA college basketball playoffs commence in a month-long flurry of games among the top-ranked teams. The "madness" continues to build throughout the month as the teams are eliminated, and whittled down to the "sweet sixteen", the elite eight, and then finally to the Final Four.

March Madness also extends to the blogosphere, where you'll find March Madness in full swing at blogs like March To Madness and You can check out the latest brackets at The Bracket Blog or cheer on your favorite team at the FanHouse. Go, Madness!
