Pete,

As always great stuff... I am enjoying the updates for this year very much. The percentages for an average pool win got me thinking... I went back and looked at the material for the last 25 brackets... I was amazed at the average first round only had something like 4.3 upsets (lower seed winning over a higher...) Would've ... more »

Pete,
This is off- topic, but how do you define an All- American? How would you go about finding who is an all- american?

Thanks,

How could there be only 12 (100- 88) non- top seed final four teams in 25 years, where only once in those 25 years had all four top seeds reached the final four?

What is the average:

Believe it or not, most bracket pools are won by someone who gets between 48 and 54 correct picks out of the 63 tourney games, depending on the size of the pool. This works out to a 76 to 85 percent accuracy rate. If that seems lower than you expected, remember that inaccurate picks in early rounds reduce the number ... more »
