March Mammal Madness

The official location for March Mammal Madness tournament information and resources! If you're learning, you're winning!

Busted Bracketeers

2024MMM bracket starting with the sweet 16

Sometimes our pick for Champion meets an unfortunate early exit from the tournament. Upsets happen, and they are called upsets not because people respond to them with cordial equanimity. BUT in 2024, in collaboration with MMM graphic design guru, Prof. Will Nickley, we present the Busted Bracketeers Bracket! While you can’t update any digital bracket submissions, you CAN print out this bracket starting with the Sweet Sixteen, pick a new champion to cheer & keep following the MMM action through to the end! Rally your fellow friends with busted brackets to form your own local club!

Educators, consider starting a small prize for the best score of the Busted Bracketeers or best sustained engagement of the Busted Bracketeers.

2024MMM Bracket

Online Bracket Scoring

Back by popular demand, Mr. Jeff Brunstrum’s CONTEST MANAGER! 

The contest manager can be copied and then be used by teachers to track student scores on their bracket selections. MMM strongly emphasizes that students should be graded on participation, aspects of combatant research, arguing from evidence, and/or other classrooMMM activities, but students should never be graded on how well their bracket scores in the tournament.

The ASU Library acknowledges the twenty-three Native Nations that have inhabited this land for centuries. Arizona State University's four campuses are located in the Salt River Valley on ancestral territories of Indigenous peoples, including the Akimel O’odham (Pima) and Pee Posh (Maricopa) Indian Communities, whose care and keeping of these lands allows us to be here today. ASU Library acknowledges the sovereignty of these nations and seeks to foster an environment of success and possibility for Native American students and patrons. We are advocates for the incorporation of Indigenous knowledge systems and research methodologies within contemporary library practice. ASU Library welcomes members of the Akimel O’odham and Pee Posh, and all Native nations to the Library.
