Overview

March Munch Madness is a lighthearted look at the culinary and nutritional challenges of surviving one of the nation’s most popular sporting events - the NCAA basketball tournament.

Brent Musberger is credited with introducing the term March Madness to the nation while analyzing the NCAA tournament in a 1982 CBS broadcast. But March Madness, a registered trademark of the Illinois High School Sports Association and the NCAA, is much older. It originated in Illinois as the title of a 1939 essay by Hall of Famer Henry V. Porter describing his hoops-crazy state’s annual boys’ high school basketball tournament. That tournament, with more than 900 teams playing by the late 1930s, was the stuff of dreams and legend, epitomized by the 1952 state champion Hebron, a school with only 98 students.
