Two weeks ago, the creative minds at Little Caesars came up with seemed like a great idea at the time (Full story below). At the start of the NCAA Men’s Basketball tournament, Little Caesars tweeted what seemed to be a sure bet: "If a #16 BEATS a #1 in men's basketball TONIGHT, you could score a @LittleCaesars Lunch Combo!"

Little Caesars' Gamble Turns Into FREE Lunch For Everyone
Tonight is the NCAA Basketball Championship between number three seed Michigan and number one seed Villanova.
The story isn’t so much about the two teams playing, but instead about number 11 seed Loyola, which was this-close to playing for the championship. It wasn’t meant to be as they ran out of gas in the second half of their Final Four game on Saturday and were sent packing.
So, we may get a predictable game with two college powerhouses instead of a chance to see a crazy upset.
