After Half Of Thursday's Action, Just 1% Of This Year's NCAA Tournament Brackets Remain Perfect

After just eight games - which is one quarter of the total first round action - we're down to just 1% of people who submitted NCAA Tournament brackets being perfect. Why? Little Rock's double-overtime victory over Purdue put a serious dent into millions of people's brackets.
