March Madness is being blamed for a Nebraska fifth graders recent trip to the principal’s office. According to Omaha.com, eleven-year-old Max Kohll received a stern lecture this week after attempting to run an NCAA tournament pool at Omaha’s Columbian Elementary. Max was collecting five-dollars from every one of his friends who wanted to submit a bracket. Unfortunately, when the school’s principal learned of Max’s pool she brought him down to her office and told him the fun was coming to an end. Max’s mom says she was a little embarrassed when the principal called because she had fronted Max the five-dollars for his bracket. Max says he’ll never try to run another NCAA tournament pool in school, noting that gambling is “illegal, sort of.”
