That Time of Year

Yes, it’s that time of year again. The time where the number 1, 2, and 3 seeds in the NCAA tournament play much lower ranked teams in the first round, and, just like every year people think that the high seeds who don’t win by 40 have absolutely no chance of winning it all, even if they are the best team in the country, Florida. Florida is the Number One team in the NCAA right now, yet they played a very close game against Albany, and now people everywhere are saying they cannot win the tournament.

The statistics website fivethirtyeight.com says that since Florida didn’t play well against Albany it sets them up for an early exit from the NCAA tournament. Every year this happens and there are always statisticians who forget that history repeats itself. So in one year when the experts say ‘No way,’ to a good team after a tough first-round game, don’t believe it for a second.
