After the Wolverines’ trouncing of Florida and tourney favorite Louisville’s beatdown of Duke, the Madometer ticked up to 21.8% deviation from higher seed dominance. Even if Louisville wins the championship, this reading can go no lower than 20.8%. That makes this year that craziest dance by a full one percent, or six seed positions.
What’s the worst it can get? If Wichita State cuts down the nets, the Madometer will surge to 23.2% insanity. And the two additional upsets will bring the total to 13–tied for the most in the modern era with four other dances.
