Corey Johnson did the impossible. He completed a perfect bracket. And because his last pick was not saved, he is now out of the running like a team that didn't make it to the Sweet Sixteen. May the people and companies responsible for creating the contest reconsider or at least bestow some sort of prize to Corey Johnson. He is a great, caring, and selfless person and most deserving of the $100,000

Pay Corey Johnson for his Championship bracket
