But with all due respect you are simming for indvidial games, not tournaments. Those indvidial Sims don't take into account that each game is part of a larger tourney and thus don't account for fatigue and higher likelyhood of injuries from the underdog after so many games as well as the favored teams extra rest and time to plan. I think it would actually be quite hard and quite the task to sim a single tourney, as a whole. You can't really use indvidial games as a basis for seeing how a pretend tourney goes.Its been settled on the field they won it all theres no debate.
For example your sim does not take into account the fact that c state plays 5 extra games in a short time against their sweet 16 opponent who has rested more and has much less fatigue and injuries...surely some of the players in the pretend sweet 16 match up for c state have been injured because of such a daunting task to get just to the sweet 16, never mind the final 4. A basic sim like what if doesn't account for that and other very real parameters that would need to be factored for. In no way does c state win a tourney like that in the real world BUT playoff need to expand beyond even 8 ....12 or 16 is perfect imo.
