The USC Song Girls Will Take Your Mind Off Those Scary BracketsS

Your head is probably spinning right now, but I might have just the thing to bring you down to Earth—Song Girls getting the bejezzus scared out of them.

No one has yet adequately explained how this happened, but three members of everyone's favorite pep squad were paid by the E! channel to spend the night in a "haunted" hospital. I did not see this special television event, but these screen caps are positively frightening. (For the girls or for humanity, I'm not sure.) If you like watching pretty girls scream and then not get murdered by an axe wielding maniac, then I guess you're the audience for this show. Congratulations.

I'm not going to comment on the brackets today, because bubble teams make Hulk want to smash. Instead, here is what I believe to be a tentative schedule for the week. All events subject to change or not happen at all.

Tomorrow morning: We'll have a special Deadspin branded printable bracket, as well as info about the Pants Party Pick 'Em Pool.

Tuesday/Wednesday: Publish the Preview Capsules. (If you did not hear back from me, someone else got the team you requested. Sorry.) Also, Suss builds his zombie live blog army.

WednesdayTuesday Night: Play-In Game. (Sorry—call it what you want; that's what it is.)

Wednesday: Region-by-Region Previews, plus I will give you the picks that will win your other pools.

Thursday, High Noon: Unleash hell.

Now: Rest, my sweets. It's going to be a full week.
