Jerry Palm and Joe Lunardi have both posted brackets today. Jerry has Alabama in the first four out, while Nebraska isn’t listed at all:

Joe has Alabama safely in as a 10-seed, while Nebraska is in the first four out:

While they may disagree on the overall field, they both agree Alabama has a better resume than Nebraska.

THIS IS INSANE!

Just going by the ratings systems the NCAA has deemed worthy of inclusion on their team sheets, Nebraska is roughly 3.15 wins ahead of Alabama. 3.15 wins! If you prefer a rate state, a bubble team should win roughly 62.03% of their games against Alabama’s schedule. Alabama has won 56.67%, which is to say they are 5.37% behind that pace.

A bubble team would expect to win roughly 66.06% of their games against Nebraska’s schedule. Nebraska has won 70.97%. They are 4.90% ahead of where we’d expect an average bubble team to be.

I understand we can’t simply use W/L records because teams play vastly different schedules. That’s why I use WAB to quantify the difference in difficulty. The fact is, in a fair system, Nebraska would be safely in, and Alabama would need to go on a run in the SEC Tournament.

However, enough about the majors. We’ll have to wait and see whether St. Bonaventure and Middle Tennessee need assistance from the committee to make it into the NCAA Tournament. We’ll know a lot more in a week.

Nebraska beat Penn State yesterday to move up to 33rd in the WAB standings. They still seem to be on the outside looking in as far as an NCAA Tournament bid goes:

Lunardi has them out for the moment. They will likely face Michigan this Friday at MSG:

http://www.espn.com/mens-college-basketball/bracketology

Would a win against Michigan, followed by a loss to Michigan State, be enough to get them in? I have absolutely no idea. I can tell you that their implied Pythag of .8863 is rather impressive.

Arizona State appears to be safely in, despite an implied Pythag of .8437. It appears life really is easier out west.

Scott Van Pelt nailed the reasoning that is going to destroy the Big 10 on Selection Sunday. The truth is, Nebraska’s resume really is fairly impressive, but it won’t be viewed as such due to how the committee operates.

Earlier today the official NCAA March Madness tweeted out the top five games of the day. Sitting at #1 game of the day: Penn State at Nebraska:

OK, I can see that. Jerry Palm, as close to an official bracketologist as we can get, tweeted this out when asked how the matchup affected his last four out:

In short, even if the field were 72 teams, the winner of the game of the day wouldn’t merit inclusion. My word!

Note, that if we wanted the 37 best at-large teams, Penn State would be an easy include. If we want the 37 best at-large resumes, Nebraska would be well in the field.

Arizona got caught. Let’s fast forward:

Now, the above would mean a booster could give a player $250,000 for signing some basketballs. Which is fine. I’m cool with that future, and would like to see it come to pass. I just want to be clear on what it would mean once players could openly accept payment. That’s the future I want, but we should recognize what it would mean.

As for WAB, I’ve been convinced that a floating baseline is correct. A standard baseline across ratings-systems is slightly inaccurate, and while the issues are minor, they’re real and there’s no reason to live with them.

What I want to do next is solve for the algebra problem from Hell. The implied Pythag for a .5000 percentile for every team. I can solve it team by team, but hardwiring an answer into the spreadsheet is going to be challenging.

Running the KenPom-WAB’s, four teams stood out to me:

Rank School WAB Pythag Seed
43 Virginia Tech 0.46 0.8614 NULL
64 Tennessee -1.69 0.8205 9
72 Southern California -2.1 0.8371 11
76 Virginia Commonwealth -2.36 0.7226 11

Tennessee was safely in. USC and VCU faced off in a play-in game. VCU won and went on a run that sent them to the Final Four. Tennessee got pounded by Michigan 75-45. Woof. Virginia Tech got left out. Now, Virginia Tech was a fairly strong team, playing in the ACC, so I don’t think the issue was whether they were one of the 37 best at-large teams. Moreover, their resume was solid. It was certainly better than Tennessee’s, or USC’s, or VCU’s. I’ve included hyperlinks to their RPI data. USC was 80th. VCU was 114th in SOS. I can’t say this was just a case of strength of schedule trumping strength of record. I’m honestly not sure what this is. Harvard and Saint Mary’s would have been better picks than VCU and USC. As for Tennessee, they were a #9 seed with that resume? Just baffling.

As for the explanations given… well, they don’t tell us much:

Finally, confession time: I ran these numbers three times just because I couldn’t believe BYU was seventh in the WAB standings. Somehow I remembered San Diego State, but completely forgot about BYU. Oops!
