It turns out that not everyone had put stock in Kansas. Or Georgetown. Or Vanderbilt. Or even Temple.
Alex Herrman, a 17-year old autistic boy from the Chicago area, has the nation’s only perfect bracket after two rounds of play.
Said Alex to NBCChicago.com, “I’m good at math. I’m kind of good at math and at stats I see on TV during the game”.
Umm, I guess so, Alex. According to BookofOdds.com, the chances of going 48-0 through the first two rounds of the tournament are 1 in 13,460,000.
The only downside for Alex? He entered his bracket in CBS’ Bracket Manager … the only bracket challenge without a prize or cash payout. Of the 4.78 million players competing on ESPN.com, the leader has already missed four games.
I'm not sure about you, but I will be keeping my eye on Alex Herrman. He predicted Kansas State, Tennessee, Purdue and Kentucky to advance to the final four. His national champion? His older brother, Andrew's, alma mater: Purdue.
