It's a better turn out than our bowl season pick-em though, and out college football thread is much bigger than the bouncy-squeeky-ball one.

Thanks for donating.
my grandma used to watch espn & sportscenter with religious fervor. dad entered her brackets for several years at his employer, and she typically won or finished in the top three every year.

our scoring system at my last employer rewarded upsets, so if you picked a 10 over a 7, you got 10 points. in the second round if you picked that 10 and they won, you got 20 points. one of the girls picked by her favorite logo/uniform/color, and there were two years where she was winning our pool by a wide margin by the virtue of a couple of upset picks that went deep. shit, i had like 75% of all my picks right and was getting my ass handed to me by someone who watched zero college hoops.

I have KU beating Louisville. Call it birdball. And revenge for 1986, one of many years in which KU has lost in the NCAAs to the eventual national champ. This includes last year, when the Jayhawks were defeated by one of the best pro teams in college basketball history.

My bracket at work has KU over St. Louis U., winning a bracket stitched together in an alcohol-fueled odds-defying tour de force. Jayhawks and Jesuits. Birds and Bills.

Not much time left to (A) get in or (B) mess up your bracket some more.

Quite the upset, and I had UNM winning a couple more too. Way to go Haaavard though.

For the bracket-- I'm pissed that I didn't pick Oregon. Really thought about that one. (Didn't for most of the others) Figured they'd be playing with a chip on their shoulders.

"Yahoo! Sports collected 3,329,638 bracket entries this year. And of that total, guess how many perfect brackets there were?
374.
Yep, 374 out of 3.3 million. That's a percentage of 0.012."
