So far only three of us have signed up. Come on, guys, take your mind off Daylight Savings Time and fill out a (soon to be announced) bracket.

Signed up, but I'm not seeing any way to add teams. Is this something that shows up later on, or have I fat-fingered my way into entering a blank bracket?

Not sure what the final deadline is for completing a bracket, but the games begin March 15th. Beware the Ides of March!

Actually, they start the evening of the 13th (with the "First Four" teams-that-we-don't-actually-want-in-the-tournament games), so most places you should get it done by then.

Yup. Currently tied for last. Haven't lost a final four pick yet, so I got that going for me, which is nice.

Fun factlet. You have a better chance of hitting the powerball jackpot than picking a perfect bracket.

Well, that's it for me. Suffice it to say that the UMBC win put a significant dent in my chances for making it as far as next to last.

It was bound to happen. What a game by the Retrievers. They almost outscored UVa's total score in the second half alone.

I love that the team that did this has for a mascot an animal from which the most vicious danger is... that they won't stop begging you to keep throwing the damn frisbee.

Argh, why did Syracuse have to win any games? I dislike them enough as it is, and then it'll make my coworker, who didn't even go to Syracuse but just grew up in upstate NY, talk about them more.

I'm feeling pretty good about my odds, considering that I know nothing about basketball (these are basketball teams, right?).

I could have used this luck on the lottery, but nooooo... I had to waste it on this.

Well you had a one-in-four chance now you have a one-in-two chance, so your odds are astronomical compared to the lottery.
