    A double OT game by one judge translates into an OT game on average...rounding up?

    Virtual tv execs are happy!

    Utah State vs MSU-south would have been a really good game if it was really played.

    They're in different regions, but thanks for the suggestion. I'll lay out the next scores according to site, so folks immediately see the next matchup.

    E TN St.......67...............62...............66..............65

    Wis narrowly avoids the upset. I was tempted to take the 2 out of 3 approach and give E TN St the upset, but need to operate consistently by averaging scores. UK and WI will revisit their Final Four matchup from a few years ago.

    Sorry - I thought you were referring to Michigan St. I'm getting a little cross-eyed from tabulating scores.

    2 judges pick the upset by E Tenn st, yet Wisconsin wins?! Wait....I say 2>1 ....don’t let one judge skew the scoring of a game.

    Right - it's a good idea. According to the rules I set forth, though, the judge's scores would be averaged to determine the outcomes. I don't wish to change the rules mid-contest. Would acct for that in future contests, though.

    Need some good ole bracket busters! You should look at historic % of upsets per seed line. At least for the 1st 2 rounds. Or round of 64 at a minimum. Might want to hit those “targets” at a minimum. Don’t want to be more “chalky” than a typical tourney, imo.

    Remember, these outcomes are the results of a combination of judge's scores. With that, it's more likely that scores and outcomes will regress to the mean. Hope you accounted for that in your bracket! ;)

    Part of the beauty of the tournament is that it's a single elimination event and some of those outlier events will happen. There's no way for us to truly capture that magic, but I'm trying brother! Thanks for continuing to post here. I hope we get some more chatter.
