The Quicken Loans and Warren Buffett bracket has been the talk of the internet for the past few weeks.

Buffett - in conjunction with the insurance company - were offering a billion dollars to anybody that could make it all the way through the March Madness NCAA tournament with a perfect bracket, predicting every single one of the 63 games correctly.

Despite Buffett's money staying firmly in his pockets - what with there being no-one left in the competition due to a number of shock losses - the entrepreneur said that he is disappointed that he didn't get to crown a winner.

"That's just part of the insurance business," he told The Dan Patrick Show earlier today. "It would not have bothered me to pay out the billion."

Buffett went the other way entirely, saying that he wants to bring back the challenge and make it easier to win!

"I'd like to modify it a bit," he said. "So people had an even better shot than they did this year."

It only 25 games out of the total 63 for there to be no perfect scores left in the game this year. That's still better than last year however, when all 11 million participants in the ESPN bracket were out after day one.

So better luck next time guys and girls, we sincerely hope that the bracket does come back because it got so many people talking and excited about March Madness.

It also helps proceedings with the fact that Warren Buffett's company reportedly made a billion dollars of their own last week due to increased stock prices following the competition.
