We also keep a list of the scores of all the games we play between great teams and update our all-time rankings by adjusting their ratings using a formula similar to the one used by www.kenpom.com. You can look up our scores and rankings by clicking here. We are also happy to add scores from games you play using the game - just email scores to email@example.com.
The only teams we have not used in a game to date are those 26 new teams. The tournament below lists the next games we plan to play. It worked out nicely because six of the new teams are truly elite and ranked much higher than the other 20 new teams.
Therefore those six get a bye and we will have them in 30-team pods. For example, the 16-seed Florida State (1968) will play the 17-seed Centenary out of Louisiana (1976) and the winner will play our 1-seed in this tournament Michigan 1993 - the famous Fab 5 led by Chris Webber.
The next pod down is an interesting match-up - if Kevin Durant can help Texas win an in-state battle with Tiny Archibald and UTEP, then he would face his long-time NBA teammate Russell Westbrook at UCLA.
