    I usually do as I'm filling out my bracket after the games are played. Sometimes I even get those wrong though.

    Someone is going to create the 9000000000000000000 possibilities using some sort of algorithm. Hell, Ill give it a try.

    I'm guessing that they'd have some way to limit entries. Perhaps a valid email address. Not that this prevents you from doing this, but it'll add another layer of complexity to your algorithm.

    I am not a math person by any means, but I was thinking of ways to do this as well. I mean, you could look at the history of the tournament based on seeding and do some probability to limit the options..but, then again, all it would take as one 16 beating a 1 and it could throw it off.

    It's all good until someone has a dang near perfect bracket going into the final four and they offer one of the coaches half a billion dollars to throw the game.

    That would take quite a cover up, I'd sue for a trillion

    Sounds like we're all on the same page. Let's make this work.

    That's a good point, you could probably get rid of a decent sized chunk with the 16 seeds. But as you said, as soon as you do that, they go and win the whole damn thing.
