No way the pats lose to the Colts. They will have payback on their mind. It will be 2014 all over again with Brady seeing red. They will not coast in the second half either. This will be a statement game.
You don't have an issue drafting Funchess after selecting Benjamin as well? Personally, I'd rather avoid having two Panthers receivers. Cam runs too much to feed both mouths. I really like both options, but don't think I would want to have both, you know what I'm saying. If I don't get Benjamin early I'll look for Funchess later.
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)
