It seems like in the first round the 5- 12 AND 6- 11 matchups are the most important
and in the second round the 6- 3 matchups are the most important.
Curious who everyone is selecting in those two situations.

for my 12 over 5's i've got vcu and even possibly south florida (seed guide driven)
for my 11 over 6's ... more »

pete question. model 9 "seed guide" has florida versus missouri.

missouri meets the single victim criteria of tourny coach has made no more than 1 E8 appearance

and florida meets all 4 of the upset criteria

yet the bracket puts missouri through?

@pwakefield . . . Missouri advances because even with both teams meeting the requirements, it still only gives Florida a 47% of advancing (according to the past records of such teams). Therefor, since Pete only advances teams with a 50% or better odds of advancing, Missouri presses on to the next round.
