(compliments of Google). And given your calculations, Eye, I like my chances better than yours! [This post was last edited on 1/28/14 at 10:52 AM]

I found the math around how many possible combinations of winners there are and it is 9,223,372,036,854,780,000. Over 9 Quintillion. 2*2*2*2*2.... 63 times. So barring all the 1 seeds never lose to 16 seeds and such you have a 1 in 9,223,372,036,854,780,000 chance of filling out the correct bracket.
