Use of data analytics has diminished east coast bias


A few points:
1. The NCAA Tournament selection committee has already filled out their 68 team bracket and the results of any remaining games are unlikely to have much effect on those seedings. The biggest impact will be for teams on the bubble.
2. So much of today's process for rankings/seedings is data and analytics driven. Much more so than in the past. This change mitigates the so-called "east coast bias".
3. ESPN Bracketology currently has CU as a 5 seed. That seems fair. Barring a blowout win by Oregon State tonight, I think that is where CU will land tomorrow.
