I'm flabbergasted that there are still two thousand with a chance to win the billion $. I can't believe there were that many that picked Mercer to beat Duke.
There's that many left? Amazing

And I think the top 20 brackets all win a 100k prize

Worth a free entry I would think

You are flabbergasted and wrong. There were no perfect brackets remaining after last nights late games:

No perfect March Madness brackets left in Warren Buffett?s billion-dollar contest | Dallas Morning News

The odds of picking a perfect bracket are slightly worse than 1/9,000,000,000,000,000,000.

Ohio state finished 5th in the Big Ten. A Dayton win was not all that surprising.
Where did Dayton finish?
Don't care, Ohio State was nothing close to a dominant team, nationally or in the Big Ten.
Who was dominant? They had a better shot than most teams. I believe they were ranked 19th in the country. Dayton is playing well they knocked off the Buckeyes and the defending National champions Syracuse.

But I'm still in the running for the $200,000. I picked 33 of the 47 games correctly.

Don't get me wrong, they were a good team, but 3 people in our little office pool picked em.

AND Dayton looked freaking good in the process

Been an incredible tourney

So has Stanford, but I guess I'll take Dayton to lose to Florida.

It just struck me, that Buffet doesn't have anything better to do with a billion dollars. And nobody can understand why this country is so ****ed up.
