    That would be opposed to me. Whenever I re-buy I last exactly one more day.
    Sadly, my spreadsheet is missing a compete 2015 season for some reason. I only have the results from the first 2 days that year. (I had a job change that year, so I probably forgot to copy the file from my work computer before I switched firms. Which might explain why I didn’t list PH as a past winner. I digress.) If that was the season he and Captain tied for the win, then yes, there is precedent, as my incomplete records show that PH did a rebuy that year.

    Also, in 2018, Mrs. DH rebought (she used my money, as she does for every purchase she has made in the last 15 years. I’m digressing again. ) and made it 3 more days before losing when everyone by MBN was eliminated when Nevada, Gonzaga, and Kentucky all lost on the same day in the Sweet 16.

    There are three rules that I live by: never get less than twelve hours sleep; never play cards with a guy who has the same first name as a city; and never get involved with a woman with a tattoo of a dagger on her body. Now you stick to that, and everything else is cream cheese. --Coach Finstock

    • One nice thing about getting eliminated on the first day is not having to worry about getting picks in for the subsequent days.

      • My bold Georgetown pick was, perhaps, ill-advised.

        • I didn't expect to make it past the first day. I'm quite surprised I've made it through 2 days

              "Discipleship is not a spectator sport. We cannot expect to experience the blessing of faith by standing inactive on the sidelines any more than we can experience the benefits of health by sitting on a sofa watching sporting events on television and giving advice to the athletes. And yet for some, “spectator discipleship” is a preferred if not primary way of worshipping." -Pres. Uchtdorf

                I was vacillating between Florida and Houston today, and landed on Florida. 30 minutes ago I was thinking "Nicely chosen, Clark!"

                What are the re-buy options at this point?

                  You would have to pick 6 winners today. The rule exists mainly to keep someone from gaming the system by intentionally picking losers in the early days and rebuying and having more teams available than those who correctly picked winners.

                      • Two remain. While neither are participating members of CS.com, mrose is the ginger bomber and has been known to lurk on occasion.
