NCAA Tournament Bracket Pool-Organizing Fifth Grader Gets Busted at Elementary School

Fifth-grade boys get in trouble — that's just what they do. However, getting in trouble for an organized gambling ring (kind of) isn't normal for any preteen.

According to Omaha.com, fifth grader Matt Kohll, 11, was sent to the principal's office for organizing an NCAA tournament pool with his fellow students.

It turns out that "you can't gamble in school," Max said. "It's not OK to gamble. It's like, illegal, sort of."

Columbian Elementary principal Kathy Nelson let him off easy and made him promise never to do it again (yeah right, lady). Later, she came to his classroom and lectured his class before sending his mother a phone call.

And the question everyone is wondering? Max has North Carolina over Michigan State in the final.

It's easy to laugh at a Canadiens player when he's crying, getting his face punched in by Milan Lucic or skating off the ice after being eliminated in the NHL Stanley Cup playoffs, but we Bruins fans can still give this a chuckle.
