Oh, and if it make you feel better, I heard on one of the game that in the CBS brackets, there are no perfect one's left.  That was during the early evening games.

From the FAQ.  I hope key body parts don't fall off for reading the instructions. 

Quote
Q: What do PTS, PCT, and RK mean?

A: PTS are the total amount of points that your team has accumulated since the start of the tournament. PCT is the percentage of your performance graded against all other entrants in the game. RK is your numerical rank in the entire field of entrants.

I guess my % will drop like a rock as the rounds go on then.

I heard that too.

Last year only 1 out of the 11 million entries on espn was perfect to the sweet 16.

At first I thought Pct did mean Pct right but 40 cent has a 99 Pct and he has lost at least 5 out of the 32 games so that can't be it. Then I thought it meant Pct of winning but straight chalk has the most potential points remaining but has the lowest Pct by a long shot so that doesn't make sense either.

May be where his bracket is nationally.  Makes sense for it to be that way.

That's what it is.  The percentile your bracket falls into as compared with everyone else's.

At this brief moment in time 40 Cent and I have 13 of our sweet 16 teams alive.  But that too will crash and burn this weekend.

Absolutely! I don't recall ever having been in the top 50%.

The Big 12 has been a huge disappointment in the tourney. 6 teams and only 2 actually won their first round games.
