2016 NCAA Sweet Sixteen: Sponsored Post Opportunities for Presidential Candidates

New, 15 comments

"How will Virginia win? We'll tell you how Virginia will win. It's going to be fantastic." -- Guess who?

Florida Today-USA TODAY Sports

It's not cheap to keep this website running. Server costs are increasing. We want to increase our annual charitable giving. The editorial staff is always clamoring for more pay / any pay.

Keeping in line with what other sites are doing, we've decided to reach out to get our postseason articles sponsored. We heard that there are a ton of political dollars out there to be spent during this election cycle, and we started to think. Of our current and past presidents, as well as this year's presidential candidates, who might be willing to sponsor or pay to write a post? We decided: all of them.

We're excited to pitch the following article headline ideas to the candidates below. Have additional ideas? Leave them in the comments and keep it civil -- this is a sports site, not a politics site. Just enjoy the funnies.
