    The funny thing is that BYU used to play on Sundays decades ago but suddenly decided they didn't want to. Black people weren't allowed to be priests until 1978 until the Church decided they could....

    I wonder how many it drops down to if you assume that no 15 or 16 seeds wins unless they are matched up with Duke in the first round and that Duke's ceiling is the Sweet 16?

    Actually, that is the team that ends the game with more points, and being more physical is not always the only way to accomplish that though it is definitely a good one.

    Don't forget NFL and top FCS guys. (Tressel and Harbaugh were FCS head coaches) The pool is probably closer to 400 people.
