At this point, we know most of your basketball brackets are busted. So it's time for a new diversion: Stock Madness!

Last year, we took a break from stocks for a blame bracket to determine the biggest cause of the financial crisis.

This year, we're back with 16 teams our selection committee knows you like to debate. We'll be running the tournament in parallel with March Madness.

In the first round, we've got Comcast vs. Disney (NYSE: DIS), which is notable because a few years ago, Comcast tried to buy Disney. That didn't work out, but Comcast may still be able to own Disney on the financial hardwood.

Restaurant chains Buffalo Wild Wings and Chipotle (NYSE: CMG) are also squaring off -- but really, in a wings vs. carnitas matchup, everyone's a winner.

In the second round, we could see a true clash of the tech titans: Apple (Nasdaq: AAPL) vs. Google. Don't get too geared up, though, because each faces a nasty test in the first round, in the form of Cisco (Nasdaq: CSCO) and (Nasdaq: AMZN), respectively. If tech isn't your bag, we could also see a Boeing (NYSE: BA) vs. General Electric (NYSE: GE) dogfight in round two.

But that's enough backstory -- check out the matchups for yourself. Your votes determine who advances, so choose carefully and check back into throughout the tournament!
