Re: Week #16 - Games of Interest

I have to say, that breakdown of first round records by seed is pretty surprising and pretty convincing with respect to a 4 seed versus a 5 seed. I mentioned finding the data because I believed that you wouldn't see a difference between 4 and 5 greater than the standard deviation between seed lines...

Re: Week #16 - Games of Interest

We needed to beat St Bona to get a 4 IMO. The diff between SH or PC winning was going to make zero diff. Further, we are better than Providence this season and should beat them at home. Beating SH was a much better win. I’m ready to go back to talking about our Rams. Seriously you PC lovers need to...

There is no perceptible difference. The color jerseys you will wear in the second round? Not losing sleep over it. As much as we hate PC, nobody here would trade URI's success for PC's failure.
