The only thing that one can successfully predict about March Madness is that it is maddeningly unpredictable.
It’s like clockwork. Every year, millions of Americans fill out an NCAA Tournament bracket. Some just do it for fun. Others put in hours upon hours of research in the hopes of correctly predicting how the tournament will turn out.
And each and every year, nearly everyone gets it wrong.
This year is no different. With an upset-filled Thursday (UAB over Iowa State, Georgia State over Baylor, UCLA over SMU), brackets were bound to fall.
But how many brackets?
ALL THE BRACKETS.
0.1 percent of the 11.6 million brackets filled out in ESPN's Tournament Challenge are still perfect.

So, yeah. Maybe letting animals predict March Madness brackets isn’t a horrible way to go, all things considered.
