March Madness Bracket Predictions

Posted by Lee
With the bracket released and data available from past seasons, it's time to get those algorithms running!

I've created a "pace" bracket within our tournament bracket hosted on Yahoo. The pace bracket will simply pick the higher seeds over the lower seeds. The #1 seeds are actually ranked, too, so the pace bracket will pick based upon the overall ranking. Hopefully, the best algorithm in the contest will do better than the pace bracket. Submissions should be made to the Yahoo site; please see the contest details for instructions.

I'm looking forward to seeing everyone's algorithms at work and the resulting bracket submissions. Remember, there are prizes! If you need any help, have questions, etc. please use the comments, and I'll try to reply.
