Gotta believe that Harvard and Dayton killed about 99% of them all by themselves.  Toss in the epic choke by OU and about the only bracket left is that sweet little old lady/secretary in your pool who picked teams with mascots she thought were cute.

Being I was at work all day yesterday and didn't learn about the Ohio State/Dayton game until 8pm I'd like to say LOL BUCKEYES!

Harvard was getting some heat as the 12 seed most likely to upset a 5 seed, and the best Ivy League school in a while.  I know hat in our office pool, a lot of people called that one.

16 games on the schedule today

I'm in a pool with roughly 45 people in it.  My brother has a perfect bracket going.  Harvard, Dayton, ND, etc.  Got all 16.  The funny thing is that in the pool of 45 people, he is listed in 2nd place.  Because someone else has a perfect bracket going, and supposedly he is listed second because "tiebreakers have been employed".  2 out of 45.  After yesterday's games.  Unbelievable.

I got Harvard right, but Dayton and OK?  Seriously?  Knew there was likely to be another upset in the making, but that didn't seem like it.

Here is a screenshot, because if I didn't see it, I wouldn't believe it myself.

Not sure how to post screenshots, so I'm giving it my best try.

Gotta wonder how they picked.  Darts?  Couldn't be cool nicknames, cuz they would have had the Great Danes.

Today is the best because of the Perfect Bracket Countdown. After Thursday's craziness, we have 18741 perfects on ESPN, 3742 on Yahoo, 643 on Fox, and unknown quantities on CBS (25+). Of those 23K+, I expect we'll be down to 2010 - bludevmr17 & texrangers31 [23-0]
2011 - ar33d & Wisniewski95 [29-0]
2012 - mat2oo8fb & cborges35 [24-0]
2013 - Breanna (Yahoo) [24-0]

Of those 23K+, I expect we'll be down to less than 1000 by the middle of today, and I would be surprised/impressed if anyone goes 32-0. The last perfect brackets in the years that I've tracked:
2010 - bludevmr17 & texrangers31 [23-0]
2011 - ar33d & Wisniewski95 [29-0]
2012 - mat2oo8fb & cborges35 [24-0]

My dad is a lobo and I was born in nm so I root for them.

Lotta 5's went down yesterday but the A-10 didn't suck too bad so ...hoping VCU can keep their heads on straight and play as good as they're capable of and not as bad as they are capable of.
Of course I have to work doing AD and mail migrations that will start the same farking time as the game and I won't be able to see dick-all of the game.

To elaborate, there have been what, about 250 16-1 matchups in history, and it's never happened. But it has come close a few times, so I don't feel comfortable going more than a couple times more than 250-1

This is Cal Poly though. I got multiple degrees there and had no idea we even had a D1 basketball team.

In our little 20 person office pool, 5 people picked Harvard, 3 picked Dayton, and 2 even picked ND State

Still perfect after half of round 1. Fully expect to lose at least 3 games today.

Not even half that many. Tournament reached 64 teams in 1985, so there have been 29 seasons up until now. 116 games between 16s and 1s before yesterday.

I'm not sure that really applies here. It has more to do with the difficulty of estimating non-zero probability events which have never been observed
