odds of a perfect bracket are 1 in 5 quintillion...

so not all that surprising.

my workplace has our own little bracket competition every year for fun

only person with a perfect bracket at this point in time still is this 1 random girl that didn't even really know the teams when she was making her picks....

safe to say all of us "wannabe analysts" are quite rustled

wonder if this Billion dollar thing actually last a few years, if all 64 teams had an "executive meeting" and agreed to win / lose exactly right.

take the billion and split it with the 700 + players ( 12 per team) and coaches / higher ups. everyone gets a cool 100,000 or so.


ehhhhhh probably not happening. one team woudl F$%% the others over :)

Those are the odds assuming every game is a 50/50 split. Considering that a lot of the games aren't even close to even odds, your chances of being perfect are actually much better than that.

Perfect besides BYU. Left to get Taco Bell when they were down by 2 and on a run, came home to an asswhooping

one time someone in a 7 series Bimmer decided to cut off my friend in a 1 lane street, so my friend floored his range and cut off the Bimmer and it turned out to be Bob Stoops lolz

yes, for maybe 8 of the first 32 games. 1 and 2 seeds. the rest are very very dicey. Usually at least a few 3 , 4 or 5 seeds go down very first game. and PICKING the correct one is never easy.

it's still brutal hard to get everyone right on the FIRST day only

yes. i realize this. my crack head theory includes the coaches and team execs. being in on it too. i'm talking major scamming here !!!

so yes, let's make it closer to 2000 ppl involved. that's 500k each person! i want in !

i'm pretty amazed that the number was that high. I'd figure the odds of picking multiple upsets correctly like that would result in maybe 2-4% remaining.

Tha fuk? I was blind guessing, with the help of ESPN (Misc) analysts I came though with the Pitt win (Had Colorado in 2 other brackets). I'm currently 10/12. Would use her for lotto numbers, win then wife.
