Today is Thursday, March 28, 2019. Here’s what you need to know:
Tens of millions of brackets were made for March Madness, but only one is still perfectly predicted.
Gregg Nigl, 40, a neuropsychologist from Columbus, has correctly guessed every winning game so far in the NCAA men’s basketball tournament — and even he’s surprised. His bracket is record-breaking, with the previous streak holding 39 correctly picked winners in a row.
It seems that after 10 to 15 years of creating brackets, Nigl has developed a knack for this type of thing. With seemingly no concrete science behind it, Nigl admitted he watched a bit of Bracketology; overall, though, he chose his picks for a variety of random reasons, including favorite city or favorite coach.
With 15 games left in the tournament, it seems Nigl is closer to beating the odds of having a completely perfect bracket. He has Gonzaga winning it all, by the way.
