The NCAA basketball tournament is my favorite sports event of the year. The best part about it: you can use OR to win your March Madness pool! See my long post last year or Mike Trick’s OR blog for the details. Print out the bracket here.

Very nice. I haven’t read that post before. I’m with you. Blending my two favorite things, Operations Research and sports. Massey Ratings (of the NCAA Football BCS ratings fame) has an interesting site that aggregates a lot of ratings systems.
There is a link on the page for CB Comparison which pools together a lot of rankings. Yet it doesn’t show the LRMC ranking. Maybe we should let Massey know about it.
