There's no denying that the March Madness fever is contagious.
Major League Soccer adopted its own form of bracketology on the newest episode of This Week in MLS with hosts Calen Carr and Susannah Collins.
At the 7:30 mark in the video above, Carr and Collins unveil the Flo-Show bracket, which features eight MLS players who boast undeniably excellent heads of hair. Among the contestants is No. 2 seed Gianluca Busio, the 16-year-old Sporting Kansas City midfielder and one of the best young prospects in the country.
In the Flow-Show segment, Carr and Collins send Busio to the semifinal round after deeming his locks more impressive than those of Atlanta United FC's Ezequiel Barco. But in order for Busio to win the tournament, Sporting fans must leave their pro-Busio remarks in the comment section of the YouTube link.
The semifinal round pits Busio against Atlanta's Brek Shea, who recent began sporting blonde dreadlocks. On the opposite side of the bracket, LAFC's Carlos Vela will meet either San Jose's Danny Hoesen or Montreal's Ignacio Piatti in the other semifinal.

Busio has made three appearances for Sporting this season, including a start in a 2-0 home win over the Philadelphia Union on March 10 and a substitute cameo on Sunday at Colorado. The 16-year-old Sporting KC Academy product made a decisive impact against the Rapids, winning the late free kick that Johnny Russell buried to salvage a 1-1 draw.
