    It's $10K for the best overall bracket at Yahoo, using the Yahoo default scoring system (which we are using). Pretty chinzy of Yahoo, IMO

    No one ever won the $1M from Yahoo. No one anywhere has ever picked a perfect bracket. The odds of picking a perfect bracket are 9,223,372,036,854,775,808 to 1 (nine quintillion to one)...discounting any knowledge of the teams. Not sure if their numbers are accurate but one website tries to put that number in perspective:

    Come BDL! .. invite me at least! .. Send a helicopter to come find me man! you'll have money for that!

    I think I deserve that because I can't participate in the 10k prize for not being in USA :(

    Apparently there's 3 of us who thought we could pick week by week. Now BallLies will have unfettered access to the promised land.

    Guess who is leading after 16 games.....yours truly picking 15 of 16. Tommy Amaker spoiled a perfect bracket for me as he did others, but I am happy for him and Harvard. Still a lot of other folks had faith in him as there are several thousand perfect brackets around the nation.

    How in the wide world of sports would you be able to pick week by week??? :suspicious::noidea::doh: :ohwell::twitch:

    If it wasn't for those nerds at Harvard and those hippies at UC Berkley, I'd be wrecking shop.
    Hopefully Dre picked Iona to go the the Elite 8.

    You are a crafty one. No wonder you always win that $10,000.

    Wisconsin becomes the first big 10 team to lose and the 3rd number five seed to get ousted in the opening round. These guys threw up enough bricks to build a new arena. I had them going to the sweet sixteen so that eliminates some additional points for me..

    I had them beating OSU and sneaking into the final four. My Darkhorse pick dropped dead before it even left the stable. Looks like I'm out!

    I have 3 brackets going this year. The one that's doing the best is the one I filled out by flipping a coin. Heads=higher seed. Tails=lower seed. It predicted Harvard and La Salle pulling upsets. La Salle is now up 18pts at the half. Go coin!

    I used heads & tails on some of my picks. It put New Mexico into the finals for me.
