Cold hard facts: brackets edition


President Barack Obama wasn't the only one whose bracket took a beating Saturday night.

Out of 3,369 brackets entered into the Bracket Competition, 3101 picked Kansas. Those 3,101 people all saw their brackets catch fire Saturday night.

In addition, nine people who picked Villanova to win it all, seven who picked Georgetown, one who picked Robert Morris and one who picked Louisville all have seen their brackets bust as their pick to win the national championship already has lost in the 2010 NCAA Tournament.

All told, as of 8:30 p.m. Saturday night, just 291 brackets in the competition still stood a chance of picking the eventual winner of the National Championship.

Should Kansas State or Kentucky lose their games — though they were leading at the moment this was written — that number would dwindle into the very low double digits.

I guess that explains why I'm still 163 out of 3369.
