I feel your pain, Ned. I've got 8 of 8 teams on the south+west side of the bracket, but I can score only 4 more points (out of 48) on the entire east+midwest side. The only scenario that I can win is if both Virginia and North Carolina fail to advance to the final four. You can win if Virginia advances.

Too bad that Yahoo hasn't done a Second Chance bracket (Sweet 16) since 2013.

Looking at the overall, there's still a 182 potential bracket in Yahoo.

There are four of us with no more points possible. Amazingly enough, I can still win in the extremely unlikely event that #10 Syracuse and #6 Notre Dame both knock off #1 seeds tomorrow. :lol:

Well Syracuse came through for JAE. I can't have ND go to te final four, though. I still have UNC to win it all.

Wreckage. Sheer wreckage. Bloody inchoate carnage. Probably the worst bracket of my life.
