Well, at least there won't be any suspense for my $1 billion March Madness basketball tournament bracket.

I was out after the first game of the second round when Dayton beat Ohio State. I won't get into the whole first round (play-in games) vs. second round debate, but when the Flyers topped the Buckeyes my dream of that $1 billion payday flew out the window with them.

And, according to reports, after Friday's action everyone who entered already had at least one game wrong. It's not surprising though, with several huge upsets already (see ya Duke!) and twice as many overtime games than the tournament has had the last two years combined.

But all is not lost for me, barely.

There are "other" prizes in the Billion Dollar bracket contest and I still have three of my four Final Four teams alive.

I also have three brackets in a different contest (though it doesn't have the same payday as the billion dollar challenge) and one of them -- just one -- still has all four Final Four teams alive.

But if things stick to script Saturday and Sunday, my brackets may be completely busted come the end of the weekend.

Thank goodness for Round by Round contests!
