King of Kings
If March Madness can be seen as a religious experience, then my alma mater was just crowned the King of Kings. The number one #1 seed. But this weekend there was a heck of a lot of talk about how the Big East wasn’t all that it was cracked up to be. And how, no, they weren’t that good of a conference. I think the seedings and the math of the situation tell a different story. For the seven teams from the conference that made the tournament there are 3 #1s, 2 #3s and 2 #6s. This leaves
- The mean seed for the teams is a three.
- The median seed for the teams is a three.
- The mode seed for the teams is a one.
When was the last time that so many teams from the same conference had this good of a seed?
