I am a bracket maniac. I don't gamble. I don't buy lottery tickets. But once a year I do brackets. And brackets. AND BRACKETS!!

In total I have 20 brackets this year. You can do 10 on ESPN.com. There is no cost and you can win $10,000. What the hey! You can also do multiples on CBSSports.com, including round-by-round contests where you reset after each round. So you make sure you cover multiple upset angles as you fill out your brackets.

Of the final 16 teams I got 15 of them right on at least one of my entries. Unfortunately not at the same time. The only team I never predicted to make it to the Sweet 16 was ..... Purdue. Normally I would have. Even though I'm a Indiana University grad and Purdue are our arch rivals, I'm a Big 10 proponent, and would have picked PU to advance at least some of the time, but they lost their best player at the end of the season so I thought they would lose. Serves me right. But I picked Northern Iowa over Kansas, Cornell over Wiconson and St Mary's over Villanova several times out of 20 entries. But my overall best is only 12 out of 16 left correct. BUT! I can get the remaining games correct to the championship correct on five of my entries.

It won't happen. Something will yet screw me up. But it could happen. Ahhhhhh... **brackets!!**
