image for ACLU to NCAA: 'Let's call it March Irrationality.'

The American Civil Liberties Union has issued a statement urging NCAA officials to refer to the men's and women's championship basketball tournament as March Irrationality instead of March Madness.

"We just feel that it's more acceptable and politically correct than 'madness,'" said ACLU president, Jim Sexton.

The NCAA copyrighted the phrase several years ago to refer to the super-popular tournament and it has stuck with the fans. "I love March Madness. That's how I refer to it. I don't say, 'I love the NCAA field of 64 Championship Tournament," said Indiana University basketball fan, Scott Gimbel.

The NCAA did not return calls or emails for this story but did send a text message that they would consider March Mania, March Helter Skelter in the Sports Shelter, March and Early April Craziness, and Late March Early April Unbelievableness.
