Still time to sign up for The Huntsville Item’s March Madness challenge

HUNTSVILLE — There’s still one more day before March Madness arrives.

That means there’s still time to sign up for the Huntsville Item’s Bracket challenge.

So far six players have signed up, but as the old adage goes, the more the merrier.

In order to sign up, visit and enter the password Itemsports2014 (just as it’s shown here), then have fun picking your bracket through the six rounds of the tournament all the way through the national championship. Up to five brackets can be entered per person.

The winner will received any combination of eight tickets to Bearkat baseball games (maximum of four per game) for the remaining home games following the NCAA national championship game. Those are midweek games against Baylor (April 8) and Houston (April 15) as well as weekend series against Abilene Christian (April 11-13), Southeastern Louisiana (April 25-27), Stephen F. Austin (May 2-4) and Texas A&M-Corpus Christi (May 15-17).

We had a few problems earlier this week when we previously earlier posted about our bracket challenge, but we’ve worked out the kinks. If there are any problems, however, feel free to email us at or call us at (936) 295-5407, extension 3017. Most importantly, have fun everybody.

    Sam Houston State defensive tackle Sione Latu preys on offensive linemen. The feeling of putting his hand in the turf and knowing he’s going to blow his opponent into the backfield drives him to succeed.
    He may get that feeling even more in 2014. With an influx of talent added to the roster that will complement the returning starter, the Bearkats’ defensive line will be among the team’s deepest units this season. Defensive line coach Phil Pettite said he plans to play a rotation of eight defensive linemen, which will keep his players fresh late in games.
