there was a guy a few years ago who had a perfect bracket. I think it was atleast 7 or 8 years ago though. I remember he was on espn or some news show because of it.

Link to this?

To my knowledge there has never been a perfect bracket since the field expanded to 64 teams, I remember ESPN having a special about a guy who got the final four exactly correct the year George Mason stunned everyone and got there, but he didn't have a perfect bracket.

I could definetly be wrong though so if anyone could find a link it would be appreciated.

Well the chance of a perfect bracket if every team had a 50% chance of winning is 1 in 18 quintillion.

still one perfect bracket on espn (although there's no prize for perfect one I don't think) but they've got Clemson and WVU in the finals soooo there goes that one :o

best record after round one games was 30-2 (done by 19 different people)
i went 25-7, plus 2 sweet 16 teams of mine are out so 25-9 if you count that

yahoo has a new option, pick the last 16 games right and get the EXACT score of the final game and you win $1 mill. pretty generous of them to include the final score which is pretty much impossible
