Rantankerous [ran-tank'uhr-us] (adjective) - A combination of rant [to speak in a wild or extravagant manner] and cantankerous [contentious, disagreeable]. The word is the only suitable description for the arguments between Brian "What We Learned" Tynes and George "Hot Reads" Jones.

(RNN) - Just in time for the NCAA Tournament, the Rantankerous team is rolling out another tournament to add some hors d' oeuvres to sports fans' voracious appetite for competition.

We give you the bracket for the Greatest Sports Movies Championship Tournament, presented by Raycom News Network.

The 65-film field will duke it out for the ultimate title of the greatest sports movie of all time.

By "duke it out," we mean readers will vote to determine who advances round-by-round and ultimately crown the winner.

And by "ultimate title," we mean the next of many completely subjective honors for movies that people have differing opinions about for various reasons. But whatever, it's semantics.

Our tournament starts Monday and will coincide with March Madness. Until then, browse the bracket, make your picks and have fun debating with friends.
