How surprised is America about Northern Iowa? Let's take a look at ESPN.com's Tournament Challenge, which includes just under 4.8 million brackets:
42,500 brackets (0.9%) had Northern Iowa making the Sweet 16
16,169 (0.3%) have them in the Elite Eight
5,720 (0.1%) have them in the Final Four
2,620 (0.005%) have them in the championship game
1,546 (0.003%) have them winning it all
And what about Kansas?
98% had Kansas in the Sweet 16
59% had them in the Final Four
42% had them winning it all
President Obama’s bracket is among the 4,689,556 that had Kansas in the Sweet 16 and the 2,017,360 that had Kansas winning it all. With Villanova and Georgetown also losing, the President has now lost 3 of his Elite 8.
