Randy 513 - Gimme another hour or so. I ran into some other things I had to take care of.

I'm hoping to get it done by 4pm ET. Still too many interviews and too much agonizing over picks. Can Duke really beat Pitt/ How bad is Lawson's toe? Who's coming out of that MSU/KAN/WV/USC/BC meat grinder...numbers make decisions easy. Thinking about it by myself hurts.

Not to rush you, (more to prevent me from coming back here every 5 minutes), do you have an ETA on the Keeper bracket?

Thanks

My bad...I guess I should have paid better attention. Regardless, I love the work you are doing. Also, using the formula/criteria in the determining a champion article, where 15 of the last 16 champions have been identified, what I have determined is that North Carolina is the only team that meets all the requirements. Is this what you have found also?

petech11 - I define an upset as any game in which a team seeded four or more positions lower than its opponent springs a surprise. No doubt Gonzaga/NC and Missouri/Memphis would be surprises...they just don't meet the definition I've been using for years.

I actually see 14 upsets in your Upset- Special model with the Missouri over Memphis pick and the Gonzaga over UNC pick.

All these models seem to be putting all the 1 and 2 seeds in. I think this year is going to offer a lot of parity in the final four. This year has just been unpredicatable, i wouldn't be shocked at all if that was the final 4.

New game- play attributes model and upset special bracket available:

I just got through posting the last two models before uploading my "keeper" bracket tomorrow. Model 8, the game- play attributes model, is a repeat from last year. I wasn't going to do it again in 2009, even though it placed in the top 95th percentile of the ... more »
