For those who don't follow us on Twitter and haven't seen this on their own yet, a 17 year old in the Chicago-land area has picked Purdue to go all the way in his bracket.
"So what?" you're saying... "A bunch of idiots in the BS bracket challenge did the same thing."
Well, yes, but do any of those idiots have their bracket 100% accurate after 48 games? Seriously, 48-0?
While there seems to be some sentiment online that this is a hoax, NBC surely believes it, as they wrote the article and then emailed the link to us, thinking we might be interested.
Odds of a perfect bracket at this point. One in 13,460,000. And while that's pretty amazing, completing the trick is even longer: somewhere between 1 in 35,360,000 and 1 in 1,000,000,000,000.
Tell you what, I'll put a fiver on this kid.
