March Madness

You may be trying to forget that last year your bracket was destroyed well before the Sweet 16 (Thanks Harvard). At least you can count on Duke to choke, and adjust your bracket accordingly. What is most interesting about the 2014 tournament is it seems Social Media correctly picked 74% of the match-ups in the tournament. How can this be?
