Think this is the year you’re going to fill out that perfect NCAA tournament bracket?
Think again, Einstein.
R.J. Bell of pregame.com has released some pretty astounding — hilarious really — bracket facts and figures.
There are 9.2 quintillion possible brackets. In long form that’s 9,223,372,036,854,775,808.
How big is this number?
--If everyone on Earth randomly filled out a bracket the odds would be more than 1 billion to one against anyone having a perfect bracket.
--All the possible brackets stacked on top of one another on standard paper would reach the moon and back 1.1 million times.
