    Re: 2010 Yahoo Tournament Pick-em

    Thanks for inviting me again Chip.

    I'm riding on Baylor quite a bit. Duke and Villanova each meet criteria that suggests they will not go to the Final Four. I believe Duke's scoring pct was too low for a No 1 seed and Nova had lost too many games in their last 10.

    The No 2 seeds qualifying for the Final Four was astounding. Here's an expert from the article I'm referring too. Written by Peter Tieran at Bracket Science.com

    Two seeds: There are also 11 attributes that mark second-seeded pretenders. Avoid any two seed with one or more of these characteristics:
    1. They've won fewer than six of their past 10 pre-tourney games.
    2. Their coach has been to the dance fewer than four times.
    3. Their winning percentage is lower than .765 or higher than .900.
    4. They have an SOS rating weaker than 40.
    5. They give up 56.8 points per game or less, suggesting a slow-tempo style of play.
    6. Their scoring margin is less than 8.7 or more than 18.5 points per game.
    7. They rely on guards for more than 77 percent of their points.
    8. They have more than one freshman starter or more than three senior starters.
    9. They get outrebounded.
    10. They shoot less than .450 from the floor.
    11. Their assist-to-field goal percentage is less than .500.

    They are a 0-52 in reaching the Final Four with any ONE of these qualities.

    In case you were wondering, tOSU has a SOS weaker than 40. You could also make a case about guard play if you consider Evan Turner a guard. I also believe WVU shoots less than .450 from the floor. I believe KSU doesn't qualify thanks to their coach not being to the dance.

    IIRC in the previous years you could print out your results in bracket form - even though it was two pages. But this year, I can't get it to work. Any suggestions?
    2014 Reds record when I'm attending: 21-17
    2014 Dragons record when I'm attending: 2-1 - FINAL

    Looks like my bracket is toast already. Darn Georgetown and Vanderbilt killed me.
