NCAA Tournament 2018 bracket: Print a new one for the Sweet 16

Bracket Busted? Start fresh each round and compete for your chance to win a college basketball dream trip. Play Round-by-Round now.

After a quiet few days the madness is back. It's been a few days since the the first and second rounds of the NCAA Tournament came to a close and we've got 16 teams remaining. Keep track of the Sweet 16 by printing out a new bracket for the weekend.

It was a good run, but with No. 2 seeds North Carolina and Cincinnati both getting bumped from the NCAA Tournament on Sunday, along with No. 3 Michigan State, there's no shame in admitting defeat now that the Sweet 16 is upon us.

If you're like 90 percent of the country, your bracket is shredded into about 15 million pieces right now. Hey, misery loves company. But you know what the good news is? You can print out a brand new, fresh bracket for the Sweet 16 and pretend like the whole first round never happened. 

You absolutely should play Round by Round Bracket Games through CBS Sports and fill out your picks online. In fact, I recommend doing so. But as you sort out those picks, maybe you want to print out a copy of the bracket -- updated, we might add -- to really get a sense of what we're looking out here. There's something about feeling the field in your hand.
