The most exciting time in college basketball is here and millions of NCAA basketball fans, and non-fans, have brackets filled out in the hopes of winning a little scratch from Tom in accounting. While those pools are great for bragging rights, companies are giving out millions of dollars for the perfect bracket. Most think a perfect bracket will eventually occur. Others believe it will never happen. What do you think? 🏀

The chances of getting the perfect bracket is one in 9,223,372,036,854,775,808.

So you're telling me there's a chance?

As long as the odds aren't zero, it will happen. Who knows? Maybe someone builds an NCAA Tournament computer that perfectly takes into account wins, losses, pressure scoring, and body hair density of each competitor to predict all the outcomes. Maybe a psychic who uses their powers, not for good, but for NCAA Tournament outcomes is born.

It might take hundreds, if not thousands, of years but there will be a day when the world rejoices over a perfect bracket.

Here's a list of things more likely than a perfect bracket:

  • Getting struck by lightning twice in a row
  • Getting killed by a falling coconut
  • Getting killed by a shark
  • Winning the lottery
  • Finding your actual soulmate

So... yeah... a perfect bracket is never happening
