    Pepsi v. Coca Cola

    I prefer one Pepsi product over all other sodas/pops. It's really just that one, and all others are a far distant second. Basically, it's Mountain Dew or nothing.

    NCAA Tournament History by Seed

    So this is kind of interesting. As I joked in another thread recently, I'm not used to "seeding discussions" when it comes to Nebraska basketball. I was curious if there are certain seeds that are more advantageous with the 1 v. 16, etc. layout of the bracket. I looked at the historical NCAA tournament records by seed, by round, and assigned points to advancing to each round: 1 to the 2nd round, 2 to the Sweet 16, then 4, 8, 16, and 32 for winning the championship. Then I calculated the expected points value for each seed based on historical results. Not surprisingly, the 1 seed has by far the best expected value and there is a general downward trend from there. But, it's not a perfect pattern. For example, the 6 seed actually has a higher expected value than a 5 seed. This is largely because 6 seeds have advanced to the Elite 8 nearly twice as often as 5 seeds, because they don't have to play the 1 seed in the Sweet 16. Another interesting phenomenon is that 10 and 11 seeds have performed better than 9 seeds - again likely related to avoiding the 1 seed matchup, in the 2nd round. Connecting this to Nebraska, we are currently projected as a 4 seed or 5 seed on most sites. But, don't fret if we fall to a 6 seed. History would say we are no worse off if we fall to the 6/11 game.

    Amir Harris...

    I know Amir Harris has been completely away from the team. I asked Glynn Watson about Amir at the Nebrasketball Buddies event last week. We'll see what happens, the team is planning to have Harris back after the Holiday break.

    Merry Christmas

    Santa Claus will be delivering some stocking stuffers for everyone on HHC. But don't be alarmed when you see it. Those NyQuil chasers are only to be used on an as-needed basis, which hopefully won't be necessary in 2019.

    Ok, so a 2 seed. I'm good with that.
