Michigan Fan Still Has a Perfect NCAA Bracket (UPDATE: uh – no)
A guy who grew up in Michigan rooting for the Wolverines may be the only guy in America with a perfect NCAA bracket still. AND - he'll be at the game tonight when Michigan takes on Texas Tech.
According to the Detroit News, Gregg Nigl grew up in Saginaw as a big Wolverines fan. These days he's a neuropsychologist who lives in Columbus, Ohio - so you know he takes a lot of heat from Ohio State fans. This year he's a perfect 48 for 48 on his NCAA bracket picks. The NCAA says he's the first person to do that since they've been tracking brackets. The people at tournament sponsor Buick found out he's a big Michigan fan, so they hooked him up with a trip to Michigan's Sweet 16 game, tonight in Anaheim.
And as big a fan of he is of Michigan, Gregg has Gonzaga beating Michigan and Duke beating State in the Elite 8 matchups, with Gonzaga winning the whole thing.
UPDATE: Bracket - BUSTED! Gregg had Tennessee beating Purdue. Purdue won that game in overtime.Then - to rub salt in his wounds, his Wolverines lost their game against Texas Tech. The one he was flown in to watch. They won't let him forget about THAT in Columbus.
