    OK, for those who want to participate, I have set up the programming to run a prediction contest for the NCAA Tournament following the same rules as we used in 2019. To start, you predict now the winner of each game in the tournament from the first round through the championship. The scoring will be as follows, for each correct prediction of who advances:

    First Round Correct: 1 point
    Second Round Correct: 3 points
    Third Round Correct: 6 points
    Quarterfinals Correct: 8 points
    Semifinals Correct: 8 points
    Championship Correct: 8 points
    Below is a list of the teams in the order they appear in the bracket. So, the first two teams are paired in the first round, the second two are paired, and so on.

    If you want to enter, post your predictions for the entire tournament on this thread not later than the beginning of the first Tournament game. Based on the the interactive bracket as currently posted, that would be not later than this coming Friday, November 12, at 4:00 pm on the East Coast, which is the time of the Clemson v Alabama game. Post your predictions in the following format, leaving a space after each round:

    In order starting from the top of the list below, post the winner of each first round game (so, you will have posted a list of 32 teams)

    In order, starting from the top of your list of first round winners, post the winner of each second round game (so you will have posted a list of 16 teams)

    In order, starting from the top of your list of second round winners, post the winner of each third round game (so you will have posted a list of 8 teams)

    In order, starting from the top of your list of third round winners, post the winner of each quarterfinal game (so you will have posted a list of 4 teams)

    In order, starting from the top of your list of quarterfinal winners, post the winner of each semifinal game (so you will have posted a list of 2 teams)

    Post the winner of the Championship game (so you will have posted the name of 1 team)
    After each round, I will post a report showing the points scored, by round, and the total scored, by each competitor and the competitor standings.

    Because of the possibility of errors in my entry of your predictions and game results, please check what I report as your scores and let me know if you see any errors.

    From the trivia bin, here is a little resource for any of you trying to pick who will be the champion:

    The greatest average goals against, over the entire season, for any champion has been 0.74.

    The lowest average goals for has been 1.88.

    The lowest average goal differential has been 1.36.
    Note: 2020 is not included in the data base.

    Over the years, average goals against has been pretty consistent for the champions. Average goals for and goal differential have been declining.

    Thank you CP for getting the context going for this year.

    I have so many irons in the fire at this time that I simply could not help.

    Cheers!

    Well, I sure look like a homer with this entry! But I am making the dodgy assumption that we will have Maycee Bell back in the line up by the third round and that we can squeak by without her for the first three games. With Maycee in the back line I think we can be competitive into the final 4. -But of course any one can get knocked off in the last three rounds and it wouldn't be an "upset".

    Cheers!

    At this point, we have 20 competitors: 17 humans and 3 rating systems.

    Something I am watching is to see how the teams from the west do in comparison to other teams, in relation to their RPI ratings. Inter-regional competition is down this year from historic norms (although not as far down as last year). This means the RPI is less reliable this year at comparing teams from one region to teams from other regions. This is a problem for the RPI in normal years, so it is likely to be worse this year. And, historically, the region that has suffered most from this is the west -- although I am not sure if this has significantly affected highly ranked teams from the west.

    I have not looked carefully at matchups to see if this possible ranting problem for teams from the west could be expected to show up in Tournament results or not, but as matchups occur between west and non-west teams I will be looking to see if west teams pull off surprises in relation to RPI ratings. Of course, the set up of unseeded teams in the bracket on the basis of travel considerations (and, particularly, avoiding air travel, which was a priority in that set up) has reduced the number of cross-regional games, so the opportunities for west v non-west matchups has been reduced.

    And, as always, I will be interested to see how our human competitors do in relation to the rating systems.

    Just realized I made a mistake in the start time of the first match for the Tournament. It is 4:00 pm EST, Clemson v Alabama. So, there still is time to enter the competition here.
