There is a shockingly low number of perfect brackets left from those that were filled out on ESPN after the opening day of March Madness.

Over 17 million brackets were filled out, but only 6,306 perfect brackets remain as of this morning, according to a tweet from ESPN.

That boils down to .04 percent of brackets.

That Arizona game screwed over a ton of people, and I’m willing to bet Miami losing to Loyola didn’t do much to help anybody’s brackets, too.

It doesn’t take long for brackets to start falling to the wayside, but usually, there is a shade more than .04 percent still correct after the first day of games. This is why we love the sport. It’s just so unpredictable.

Two teams take the court, one will win and millions of people will be torching their brackets before the end of the weekend. God bless college basketball.
