His perfect bracket ended when Stephen F. Austin college defeated West Virginia. According to the New York Post, Cole said, “I was upset, it was disappointing. But I was the last one standing, so ultimately I’m not gonna hang my head over it.” Cole Parzych is a 19-year-old college student attending Syracuse. As a fan of their basketball team, he said his winners were based on how the Orange would most likely advance in the tournament. He said his theory on picking brackets is, “you just gotta be bold in your choices. Those lower seeded teams go out there with nothing to lose. They’re taking unexpected threes. They’re out there giving it their all.” According to statisticians the odd of having a completely perfect bracket is 1 and 9,223,372,036,854,775,808.
