Although the NCAA tournament doesn’t end until tonight’s game, one person already blew a shot at $100,000 even though they are currently near the top of the leaderboard.
With 11 of 16 teams in the Sweet 16 correctly named and a NCAA championship game pitting the University of Connecticut’s Huskies against the University of Kentucky’s Wildcats, ”Corey’s Champion Bracket” is an incredible bracket in the Yahoo! Sports Billion Dollar Bracket Challenge Pool. The bracket’s 48 out of 62 correct picks places “Corey” currently at 4th place in the challenge.
While a number of upsets in the 2014 tournament shattered anyone’s chances of winning $1 billion this year, the top 20 highest scoring brackets in the challenge will each be awarded $100,000.
Unfortunately, “Corey’s Champion Bracket” won’t be one of them. The bracket doesn’t name an actual champion of the NCAA Tournament.
No matter who wins the championship game tonight, Corey’s mistake, first reported by LostLettermen.com, will cost the entrant any opportunity to win the $100,000 prize, because there was no overall winner picked in their bracket.
Let this be a lesson in always remembering to complete your work.
