Ohio man’s perfect bracket busted during Sweet 16

Big Tournament

The last perfect bracket among NCAA Tournament fans is busted.

Well, as busted as you can get at 49-1.

A 40-year-old neuropsychologist who had the bracket on NCAA.com had changed his Twitter name to Gregg “Perfect Bracket” Nigl. Mr. Perfect is no more after Purdue’s overtime win over Tennessee.

Nigl (NIGH-gull) became an overnight celebrity after making it through the first two rounds with correct picks on all 48 games. It’s a nearly impossible feat, even during a tournament that’s gone mostly to the favorites.

Nigl had all No. 1 and No. 2 seeds in the Elite Eight.

Here’s some brutal luck: The loss dropped Nigl’s bracket to sixth place in the NCAA’s bracket challenge.
