    Big winner needs to send me a PM with appropriate details. Can't believe I came in 3rd, not having watched a college basketball game since last year's March Madness.

    I sought the dummy guide to scoring brackets...

    Take for instance, 3rd place and 25th place both had the most teams correctly picked and I thought that was the objective. It is, to an extent and holds interest towards future bracket strategy.

    Anyhow, in the event I'm not the only one who has interest in a dummy guide for bracket scoring, well, "Here's your sign"...

    Default Scoring (Points by Round)
    Round Points Per Correct Pick Points Possible Best Possible Score
    Round of 64 1 point 32 points 32 points
    Round of 32 2 points 32 points 64 points
    Sweet 16 4 points 32 points 96 points
    Elite Eight 8 points 32 points 128 points
    Final Four 16 points 32 points 160 points
    Championship 32 points 32 points 192 points

    It's mostly luck. That is why some of these contests say the grand prize for a perfect bracket is a million dollars. There has NEVER been a perfect bracket. None of the so called experts formulas work. Hope the dummies guide was free, you got your monies worth.

    Thanks everyone. There were many times the brackets could have gone other ways. All the hard work of doing nothing to prepare paid off. I will relish the outcome because it will very likely never happen again. I’m extremely stoked an Orion cooler will materialize from my dumb luck!

    The drive home from the (Kansas) debacle in the semi-finals was nice for some beautiful Texas scenery.
