Very, cool, that is exactly what I was hoping to see. That switch at the tail end may portend a very "mad" tourney.

Comparing this year’s top 32 Pythag teams to 1- 8 seeds from the last six tourneys:

Last Friday, I wrote a blog pointing out that this year’s top ten teams in terms of efficiency numbers had considerably lower Pythag values than their counterparts from the past six tourneys. One user, my man Spiggz, wondered whether the relative weakness ... more »
