Going lower...dipped below the 2009 bar. Hmm.

Thanks Spiggz...I was going to check on that myself. If it fell below .9638 (the lowest since I began tracking), it would be interesting to see how "mad" the tourney got.

I don't actually know whether Pythag tends to rise or fall at the end of the year either, so I'll periodically post the new top- 10 average in these comments, and we can see what happens. My prediction is that it should remain pretty steady.

Today's average: .9650

I admit that I don't have enough experience with Pythag to know if the average for the top ten falls throughout the course of the season. I know it's adjusted for schedule, but my logic was that, as these top ten teams player tougher opponents and potentially suffer losses, their Pythag will go down. Could be wrong. Yesterday, the average was .9638. Today it's .9632. One day doesn't make a trend.

Hmm, I need to read better. I see in the article you say that you are using the pretourney Pythags. Still, the same concept applies - playing better opponents should not cause your Pythag to fall.

Why do you say the Pythag will go down? The whole point of adjusted efficiency is that it takes opponent strength into account. In fact, teams that advance in the NCAA tourney will absolutely raise their Pythags in March, and those values are the ones you are using from past years, right?
