HOUSTON, TX – Even with Super Bowl XLVIII just over a week away, not all sports minds are on the gridiron. March Madness suddenly seems to be the talk of the town, only not for the reasons you might think.

Billionaire investor Warren Buffett teamed up with Quicken Loans to offer the “Quicken Loans Billion Dollar Bracket” challenge.

It’s true; picking all the winners for all 63 games in this year’s NCAA men’s college basketball tournament could totally pay off, and you’re just one perfect bracket away from $1 billion. A feat never before accomplished in the history of man.

There are more than 9.2 quintillion possible combinations. Chances of hitting a slam dunk are worse than winning the top prize in the Mega Millions or Powerball lotteries.

You know, if you laid out $1 billion in one-dollar bills it would cover more than 68 miles. Just let that sink in for a moment.

Visit Quicken Loans Billion Dollar Bracket for more info on the contest. And start researching today. Selection day is March 16th. May the best guesser win.
