Everybody lost. Buffet's money is safe. 20 can still win 100,000.00
Agreed, Ohio State lost to Dayton, Oklahoma lost to North Dakota state, Cincinnati lost to Harvard. Those were the 3 biggest surprises of the day. I expect today will have more unexpected finishes. That's why Warrens money is safe. Plus being a smart man, he had Quicken loans take a share of the responsibility. He bought a bond to insure the payout in the unlikely event of a win. He's cashing in on the publicity of a bet where the odds were soooo in his favor. That's the beauty of smaller schools making the tournament. On any given day, any team can win. Basketball, Baseball, and Hockey have a tournament. If college Football did, can you imagine the cost of the television contract ? It could fund many needs at universities. Not to mention the hotels, restaurants, rent a cars, etc. in cities that hosted the games. This year will start with 4 teams in a playoff. if it were larger, wow, that would be exciting.
I did about 8 brackets. Including one with crazy picks to try to anticipate that there will be upsets. None are perfect. I'm hoping for a consolation prize.
