In one fell swoop, those perfect NCAA brackets went up in a pipe dream.
It happened early.
And THE ruined perfect bracket happened to THE Ohio State at the hands of THE Dayton Flyers.
Part of THE story, from USA Today:
"It took about two hours for most of America’s billion-dollar dream to end.
"After the first game in the billion-dollar perfect bracket challenge insured by billionaire Warren Buffett, four out of five would-be winners were already finished, thanks to Dayton’s upset of No. 6 seed Ohio State.
On Yahoo’s Tourney Pick ‘Em game, 83.7% of users took the Buckeyes. (Those poolers aren’t necessarily entered in the Quicken Loans Challenge, but any fluctuation would likely be minor.)"
