ESPN does a Second Chance Tourney where they wipe the slate and you start with the Sweet 16. I have one perfect bracket.
I think it will hold today but maybe bust tomorrow. I counted and it looks like there's less than 200 perfect ones already.
Prize is a $5,000 Amazon card. If there are multiple perfect ones winner is determined by whoever gets closest to the points in the final. I'm horrible at points!
I love the Second Chance! My bracket has Gonzaga vs. Virginia in the final with Gonzaga winning. But it won't surprise me if Kentucky beats Virginia.

One perfect bracket!? Yay second chances!!
Good luck, Madness Girl!
Right? I love that!!!! Even though it's just four games I'm going to enjoy my one shining moment LOL:
I have Virginia, Kentucky, Duke and Gonzaga. With a final of Gonzaga vs. Virginia and Gonzaga for the win.
But I'm really impressed with Kentucky. Also Purdue but Kentucky, I kind of wish I had picked them.
(Sorry, Auburn, but I do think you're going to give Kentucky a hard time! And really sorry Duke, I love you Zion and R.J.)
I can't wait for the combine!!! Especially to watch Tacko Fall. A friend thinks he's going to be drafted based on the UCF game but I looked up a few mock drafts and he may be wrong about that.
So who are you rooting for now?

@LoriLori I still have Duke in one of my brackets, and Gonzaga in another. But right now the Zags are having trouble putting away Texas Tech - and there's only 4 minutes to play! My heart can't take this tourney!!!

@LoriLori Even though I pull for Duke sometimes and UNC tarheels sometimes, I was kind of hoping that UCF would win it. Dawkins was an awsome player for Duke a ways back and was assistant coach for coach K. His son is so talented, grew up around the Duke bball. Coach K reaching the staus he has, it would have been nice for the little underdog t o win it. I still say, UCF should be very proud of their season. Way to go Dawkins. and team.

@webbgarner1 I felt awful for Andre Dawkins, moreso than for Tacko. And of course for Coach. Seeing Dawkins cry was heartbreaking. But I always root for Coach K.
Can't wait to see Tacko at the Combine, he doesn't have the instincts. Needs a lot of D League.
But I've been wrong before: Rony Seikaly was a walk-on at Syracuse, son of a I think Greek? shipping magnate, never played -- and he ended up playing center for the Miami Heat very well.

BTW I'm writing this from beyond the grave. Dead. This wasn't as heart-stopping as last nights' but still I feel like I can't take it!
Now that I'm busted why not an unprecedented Final Four of:
Auburn -- or Kentucky, they could take the whole thing they're so hot (I really want Auburn but Charles Barkley hates my alma mater LOL so I can't root for them and Kentucky really does have the hot hands)
and I want Duke in there but Michigan State -- OMG.
Just the thought of no number ones!! Madness Madderness Maddestness!
Trying to find out if there's ever been a Final Four without a #1 seed and I can't find it. Anyone?
10:15 ETA: The entire internet is trying to find out and it seems (and everybody is searching, it's the top four searches, spelling out "number" and "one," using numerals, etc. LOL -- apparently it only happened in 1980, before the tournament expanded, so that to me doesn't count.
