You’ve heard about Greg Nigl right? He’s the guy who had the perfect ‘March Madness’ bracket through 48 games.
Well Gregg’s bracket finally busted last night, when 3-seed Purdue slipped past Tennessee, a 2-seed, in overtime.
Gregg’s incredible streak of 49 correct selections to start the tournament was AMAZING. No official bracket has EVER gone that far . . . and he beat the previous best of 39 by a whole 10 games. The odds of predicting 49 in a row are 1 in 562 TRILLION. So, yeah, this was kinda impressive.
In addition to owning the longest streak without busting, Gregg still has a good chance to finish with the best score of all time. The best the NCAA has seen up until this year is 54 of 63 correct guesses. After last night, Gregg is sitting at at 50.
