NCAA Tournament Round 2 System and Poll Comparison


With round 2 of the NCAA Tournament complete, here is an update of the system and poll comparison I posted for day 1 and round 1.

System/Poll
Points
Point Lost
Coaches
49
-64
Schmidt Computer
45
-60
AP
44
-64
Sagarin
43
-60
RPI
41
-64
Seeds
38
-64
Vegas
37
-64

And again, the coaches poll continues to lead, but my computer is a clear #2 and could be tied in a way as the coaches poll has already lost Villanova getting to the elite eight while my computer has Baylor getting there.

The AP and Sagarin are close behind but like the coaches, the AP is already losing points for Villanova. After a quick start the RPI has fallen behind and the tournament committee and Vegas are bringing up the rear.

More to come later.
