    Normally I'd take the lump sum, but I would be tempted in this case to go with the $25mil annual payments. That's plenty

    The article states huge odds, but if you remove the 4 #16 seeds, you can reduce the odds quite significantly - Even then though, you'll need to find this years VCU. (Hint, it could be in omaha, ne)

    Has anyone, ever, filled out a perfect bracket?

    Not sure which one I would do, it would be a great problem to have.

    Never on ESPN, the perfect brackets it seems are almost always done with by the first Saturday night of the Tourney.

    You have a better chance of winning Powerball twice.

    Oh, and after browsing a few articles, I'm under the impression that the First Four games are part of the deal.

    I'm still gonna dream that the CU Buffs will be playing at Bone Buff Arena next year.

    Really?, I've never done a bracket where you've had to do the First Four or previously the 64/65 game.

    From the article:

    "Aaron Emerson, a spokesman for Quicken Loans, declined to say how much the company paid for the policy. He said the tournament excludes the play-in games, which narrow the field to 64 teams"

    Sadly, the two have pretty much been interchangeable the last few years.

    Thanks, I saw another article at some point saying entries begin on sunday, and are due Wednesday, but I can't find that piece in the article anymore. Still have like 2 months for them to sort out the details.
