I'm just back from watching UCLA win two games in Louisville and am not yet caught up, but here's a quick update from the Machine Madness side of the competition.
Perhaps not unsurprisingly, Monte McNair leads the competition with 56 points and I suspect will win if Kentucky wins out. (Monte's in the Top Ten in the Kaggle competition right now.) BlueFool is
in second place just a point behind Monte and the only competitor with
Duke as champion, so she'll likely win if that happens. Jason Sumpter
is in third place but has Kentucky as champion, so he'll need some
breaks to beat out Monte -- specifically, I think he needs Xavier to
Nothing But Neural Net (great name, btw)
is the only competitor with Wisconsin as champion. Likewise I'm the
only competitor with Arizona, so obviously we'll be rooting for those
teams to win out.
