    32 Team Husker Madness Tournament

    I thought I would adapt my NCAA tournament model to run a simulated 32-team tournament with the Husker teams of the last three decades.

    What I'd like some help with is initial seeding of the 32 teams. The years to be seeded are 1981-2012. I've started the list with an obvious #1.

    Please take a minute to download the zipped spreadsheet and seed the teams for the tournament. When you're done mail it to me at paul@huskermath.com.
    Or if you'd like, just fill in the blanks here.

    1995 is far and away the best ever. Is this a battle for 2nd place?

    1981-present?

    Pretty sure the Final Four will include the 3 NT teams from that era (94. 95. 97) and the last spot would likely be one of the two teams who lost a title to Miami (84, 01)

    Id make a case for the 1982 team being in the final 4, I think that team was actually better than 83 and would've been undefeated save for Penn State's abnormally shaped field. Still think this team should have been #1 at the end of this season. Penn State eventual #1 lost to 7-4 Alabama 42-21 and SMU #2 needed a horrendous PI call to tie Arkansas that year!

    Good call on the 82 team though I would say the 83 HUSKERS deserve to be in the final four.

    Maybe, maybe not. I've only had one response to seed the teams.

    When I get that done I can run the tournament simulation.

    I have a mathematical way of seeding them, but I'd prefer to crowd source that part n

    I am assuming that it should be 2002 as an 8 seed and not 2001.
