It’s that time of the year when the nation’s eyes are glued to their TV screens and brackets.
The NCAA basketball tournament begins today so we decided to look at which famous alumni are rooting for their schools in the tournament and which NFL teams they root for during football season or the ties they have to football. Our list includes Gold Jackets, movie stars, great musicians and broadcasters. Watch for them during the tournament, which kicks off today on CBS at 12:15 PM, when the Fighting Irish, who are hoping for a Happy St Patrick’s Day celebration tomorrow,  take on the Princeton Tigers who are back in the tournament for the first time since 2011.
