Default March Madness bracket contest?

It's time for March Madness! For those not in the US, we are about to crown champions in men's and women's college basketball. Each champion is decided by a single-elimination tournament (68 teams for the men, 64 for the women), and filling out the tournament brackets is a common pastime here in the States. Some people even put money on it.

If we can, I want to set up a bracket pool for The Legion. We have until Thursday at 11 AM server time (the start of play) to submit brackets. We can award prizes like cash and tech (to be paid out after we return to peace). But we need to decide quickly.

Doesn't that have something to do with corndogs? I think basketball is just a silly version of handball (just the same as american football is to rugby and baseball to cricket), but I sure do love a good corndog!

You would be surprised how many Canadians play basketball. For two straight years (about five years ago), a Canadian was the first overall pick in the NBA Draft.

I am interested and would have proposed same, but am too busy at the moment to set it up (helping others prepare income tax returns).

The odds of picking a correct bracket are so small that someone picking at random has a significant chance
