Hail to the champions, the University of Kentucky. I only got one of the four Final Four picks correct, but luckily that turned out to be the champion. My SAS-generated picks turned out to be in the 71st percentile of all those who participated in the Yahoo NCAA challenge. Not bad.
Careful readers may have noticed that my code had a somewhat serious bug in it: the exponent in the “pythagorean” formula that I relied upon was supposed to be 11.5, but I had 1.5 in my code. Oh well!
