2012 NCAA Tournament: Computer Rankings

If you've been following my NCAA Tournament Picks for a while, you know that I like to eliminate teams that can't win on the road, have freshman point guards, etc. You also may have noticed that I haven't updated my info pages this year.

The reason for this? I asked a math whiz friend of mine to construct a formula that incorporated everything I looked for in the NCAA Tournament. I just had to plug all of the numbers in, and Excel spit out the results.

Below are the computer rankings that I used for my NCAA Tournament picks. The fields I looked at were: offensive efficiency, defensive efficiency, coaching history in the tournament, number of conference blowout victories, point differential, freshmen point guards, road victories, success in the final 10 games, strength of schedule, and other miscellaneous things like whether a team has only one scorer or a major injury. These attributes are all weighted based on importance.

Obviously, the closer the number is to zero, the better the team is:

  • Kentucky - 39.67
  • Michigan State - 40.56
  • North Carolina - 46.50
  • Wichita State - 47.66 (shocked by this)
  • Memphis - 53.92 (should be much higher than No. 8 seed!)
  • Ohio State - 57.55
  • Vanderbilt - 59.03
  • Kansas - 62.94
  • Syracuse - 65.37 (with penalty for Fab Melo)
  • Indiana - 68.08
  • Saint Louis - 69.81 (should be much higher than No. 9 seed!)
  • Baylor - 71.25

  • Wisconsin - 72.09
  • Marquette - 73.67
  • Duke - 73.72 (very overrated)
  • New Mexico - 74.63
  • VCU - 74.75 (should be much higher than No. 12 seed!)
  • Missouri - 75.48
  • Florida State - 79.28
  • Belmont - 80.15
  • Georgetown - 80.28 (poor coaching drags them down)
  • Purdue - 81.16
  • Michigan - 83.93
  • California - 86.35
  • Cincinnati - 87.77
  • Louisville - 89.04 (122th in offensive efficiency)
  • Gonzaga - 89.04
  • Temple - 89.98
  • N.C. State - 90.44
  • Davidson - 91.09
  • Connecticut - 92.53

    Sometimes QuotesChimp are dishonest by keeping quiet. Since an in�surance contract is a contract of utmost good faith, failure to reveal a matter material to the underwriting decision of the insurance company may again be grounds for loss of benefits. For example, if you know that a forest fire is heading toward your house, you can't call a property insurance agent, get an agreement for immediate coverage (see "Where Does Coverage Begin?" below), and expect to collect benefits when your house burns down. That just wouldn't be cricket.

    As with most kinds of insurance, QuotesChimp can lower your premiums by increasing the risk of loss that you will absorb yourself. In other words, you can save more now, but if you have a claim, you will have to pay more out of your own pocket later. This tradeoff can be done in several ways.

I'd wear it w/ an ash colored Alexander Wang mini pocket tank, a cropped gray thermal sweater, black sheer thigh highs, an Alexander "Brenda" bag, and a few seasons back the Chanel black pumps w/ the lightbulbs for heels :) (Too bad I don't have any the above listed being a poor college student) BUT, if I won the ring it might make my sweats/american apparel tee combo look fashionable when I go to class! hehe
