Something tells me that if this guy manages a perfect bracket, Buffett would pony up something. Maybe "just" a million.

That said, won't happen anyway.

Serious.  He's just over half way there.

Cool that he made it this far though.

Buffett's name was attached for publicity, but I think Quicken Loans and an insurance policy were funding the thing. Why would you even need to buy insurance with those odds? Heck, I'll give ten bucks to anybody that can pick all the remaining games correctly. The tough picks are just beginning.

His picks for today and tomorrow don't suck but he's gonna need a miracle or two to continue.  Mercer over Tenn, Conn over Villanova and Oregon over Wisky are pretty tough.

Tweets: did it 'for the love of the bracket.'

Reality: punching himself in the balls every 10 minutes for not entering Buffet's contest

Buffett is the one who ponied up the premium and is the one who took out the insurance policy (and it is his signature on the policy).

Oh hell, he's also got SFA over UCLA tomorrow, a 12/4 in the mix.  Not gonna happen.

Agreed, he has Michigan-Michigan State as the national final, not going to happen.

i started out 11 for 11 and then it all went to pot. that guy picked well.. but SF Austin isnt getting past UCLA, and Oregon isnt going to the final four. His bracket will be busted soon.
 
2014-03-22 10:05:07 AM
I was looking to see how many brackets were entered on the main sites.  I think around 50 million.  Being the Bracket Highlander out of that many is awesome.

I wonder how much the premium was? Maybe not much with those kinds of odds.

Drop the "I think." It's exactly what they did. You buy insurance for legal/bonding reasons.

There are two kinds of people in this world my friend, those with perfect brackets not in the billion dollar pool and those who dig.  You dig.

He would have lost it on the last one, anyway.

Go Blue!

The odds of picking the first 32 games of the tournament correctly purely on chance is 1 in 4,294,967,296. Yes, 1 in 4.29 trillion.

That only cost Uncle Phil a quarter-billion.
 
2014-03-22 10:36:30 AM
If you always pick the 1 and 2 to win (not a very bad idea), then the odds are 1 in 2^24, so 1 in 16777216.

Still really impressive. My picks got hammered
 
2014-03-22 10:40:46 AM
You only got 1 bracket to enter in the contest though.. so, if you make a whole bunch of different brackets around various websites... your "perfect" bracket might not be in that one contest.  It didn't say he didn't enter the billion bracket, just that that one wasn't entered.

If it were Warren(The Boogaloo Shrimp) Buffet's money, and he did give away a bbbbbillion, how many bbbbbillions would he have left?

Buffett is the insurance.  Buffett will be the one paying the $1B.  Quicken Loans is the one offering the contest and they are the ones that paid the premium to Buffett.

The odds are something around 1:9.2 Quintillion.  The odds are in Buffett's favor.

Much less than 50 M. ESPN is the most popular site, and it has just over 10 million. The other big sites are not even close to as many, so the grand total is likely 20-25 million.

$57,500,000,000.  I'm too lazy to look it up, but I believe he'd still be richer than Bill Gates.

Nope. Gates passed Slim and is back on top again.  According to Forbes, Buffett has only been above Gates for 1 year (2008) of the last 15.

If he had to pay out, Buffett would keep his hold on the number 4 spot, dropping from $58m to $57m.  Ellison is behind him with $48m

I recall a news story from the year Arizona won about a teenager having picked all 64 games.

Buffett probably has $58m in 'hooker money' in a bag in his nightstand.  When he's really pleased with the service, he tells the girl to reach in with one hand and that she can keep all the packets of Grovers she can grab at one try.

All of you have weird notions on the practices of filthy rich people. Has it occurred to you dolts that maybe they didn't become rich by blowing wads of cash on illegal pharmeceuticals and loose women? They work hard for that money, slaving under their rich parents until they died or cashing in on ideas you thought of first but were all too lazy to capitalize because nothing good happens to you kos the shadow government doesn't want you to have fun so eat your damn salad and shut the fark up kos YOU WILL NEVER GET THAT SORT OF MONEY.

/Yeah, Mercer busted my bracket too.
