    So has it been discussed yet how Trip got banned from the game? Can the owner guy file some paperwork making Trip his service dog bc he has anxiety? Could the NCAA then deny Trip and **** w the ADA?

    Historical records entering this year:

    1s: 124-0 (100%)
    2s: 117-7 (94.4%)
    3s: 104-20 (83.9%)
    4s: 99-24 (80.5%)
    5s: 80-44 (64.5%)
    6s: 81-43 (65.3%)

    I've been following the betting odds on 1s for a number of years, so I know just about all of them have been between 98% & 99%. I'll have to make an educated guess on the others based on this year. The lower you go, the more the odds vary form game to game, so my guess could be off.

    This year (guess on avg.)
    2s: 90-97% (94%)
    3s: 75-92% (85%)
    4s: 65-91% (80% - the 65% [Cal] is definitely unusual)
    5s: 71-86% (70% - usually there is a game or two about -2, but this year they are all around -5 except Ind -11 which is probably highest 5 I've seen)
    6s: 50-64% (62% - unusually competitive games on this line this year)

    So on my rough estimate, the actual win rates look pretty close to expectation: 12s have over-performed a bit, while 11s and 16s have under-performed a bit.

    No idea about the historical computer #s, but would be interested in the article about it.

    Was Blue II ever allowed earlier than the Final Four? My memory is that there is an NCAA rule against live mascots and he had to get a special exception to go to the F4.

    My understanding as well....NCAA rule against live mascots....Colorado could bring Ralpie.

    Seton Hall is struggling particularly Whitehead.

    While I still hope Providence pulls off the W, it is kind of fun to see a couple calls go against Dunn for a change.

    Ugh. Providence about to go down. Seton Hall with an awful first half against Zaga. We need the BE to show up!

    Jesus, USC just giving this game away. Sorry guys, I'm focused more on my bracket than how the Big East does. Picked against both Providence and Seton Hall.

    Providence has to be the luckiest team in the NCAA...hope UNC crushes them.

    Wow what a mess up on D with three seconds to go! Didn't realize this was Providence's first win in the NCAA since 1997.

    Thrilling end, but USC gave the game away by missing FTs. Pac-12 exiting the tournament in a hurry, which makes me very happy.

    They will. Both Providence and USC were about 12 seed quality in reality. (I'm not rooting for or against them.)
