    If there is 16 teams in four different Brackets why do they refer to 65 teams for the march madness tournament?

    16x4=64

    Anyone?

    Dude, this is the Patriots forum. Kurt Warner was bad enough. Get on a different board here.

    There's a 65th team that plays the 64th team in a preliminary game to decide the 16th seed in one of the regions.
