The crowd roars, the mascots cheer, Dick Vitale goes crazy!
Yes, it's that time of year again, accompanied as always with crazy buzzer-beaters and teams like Wichita State from last year busting up your bracket! (And, of course, that crazy challenge for a perfect bracket winning $1 billion! Who would have thought?) Anyhow, I'm your host, lumosityfan, testing your knowledge of the history of the NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Tournament. Before we begin, I'd like to go over a few guidelines (borrowed, of course, from TDs of days long gone):
1. All answers must be posted through PM (NOT BY REGULAR POSTING) by 6:00 PM Sunday, March 23, 2014. (Coincidentally, exactly 7 days after Selection Sunday begins!)
2. As always, you may only use what's in your wonderful noggin. If I suspect any cheating, posting of possible right answers, and mischief of this sort, I will have no choice but to report you to the NCAA Infractions Committee. (Who probably won't deal with you at all (hint hint Miami football?))
3. The goal of the game is to get the lowest score.
4. Scoring goes as such:
a. Right answers earn you the amount of people who answered that answer.
b. Wrong answers earn you 2 times the sheep (the most popular right answer).
5. Here are the lovely bonuses awaiting you today:
a. DROP - 0 points.
b. HEDGE - used to accompany an answer. If you get the answer wrong, you will only get half the wrong answer penalty.
c. Bonus Questions: if you get them right, -1. The bonuses are independant of the questions.
5. If you, while watching this lovely tournament, stumble upon a right answer, feel free to use said info. However, I do not want people snooping around Wikipedia intentionally finding right answers. (See Rule 2 for more details).
6. Tiebreakers go as follows: number of questions correct, number of singletons, number of doubletons, whether used drop, submission order.
6. As always, have fun, don't let wrong answers bite you in the butt, and good luck!
Let the games begin!

Jeopardizing questions since 2004!
