Every year you sit down on Selection Sunday with your pencil (erasers necessary) and paper.

Every year you troll Twitter to see if the first round gets leaked.

Every year you think to yourself, "This is the year."

And every year, your bracket gets busted.

But what if THIS is the year? 

What if you pull off the impossible and craft the perfect bracket? Isn't it worth a chance at a MILLION dollars to fill out ours? In our Admiral Nelson Premium Spiced Rum $1,000,000 Bracket Challenge, you can compete against Dan Dakich, JMV, Grady, Big Joe, Kevin Bowen and The Producers PLUS you'll have a shot at other great prizes.


There are almost always upsets in the NCAA Tournament but only a few are particularly shocking. A No. 16 seed still has yet to top a No. 1 seed, but we've seen our fair share of Cinderella runs far in to the tourney by teams we never expected to.
