    How are everyones NCAA brackets looking? Mine was great until I lost three out of these last four today. Overall I got 24 out of 32 in the opening round. And how about three 12 seeds and a 13 seed advancing? I don't pay much attention to the regular season, but I do enjoy the tournament.

    There is a field of 64 teams that start out at the beginning of the tournament, that divides up to 32 individual games (1v1) in the first round. So when you do a bracket and the first round concludes someone says 'I got 24 right' that means that person correctly predicted 24 games missing only 8 games total from the first round of 64. You continue this for each round until the tournament finishes and the Champion is crowned for that season.

    So 64, 32, 16, 8, 4, 2, 1, is how each round is determined or 1st round, 2nd round, Sweet 16, Elite 8, Final Four, Championship Game, National Champion, to be more technical.

    That is a link to the bracket as it stands now, officially.
