This week the national media was alert when Alex Herrmann picked the first two rounds of the NCAA tournament to perfection. Oh yeah, Mr. Herrmann just happens to be autistic. For all the science of picking winners from “geniuses” like Jay Bilas, a teenager from Illinois was able to best him by a massive margin.
I don’t know how the rest of this young man’s bracket will work out, but he has already done something unimaginable. The odds of picking the first two round of the NCAA tournament are 1 in over 13 million. When looking at his bracket, I think a more than a few professional gamblers in Vegas pulled their hair out. Alex has Purdue winning it all by the way. A long shot to say the least, but who know? He has been perfect so far.
