Further boiled down:


“At the risk of confusing one person on this board, I like to look at @BobDole's excellent presentation of the data with another twist.

  • PSU win % in the semis when they are the higher seed = 100% (sample size = 38)
  • The field win % in the semis when they are the higher seed = 69.23% (sample size = 182)
A difference of 30.77%

  • PSU win % in the semis when they are the lower seed = 53.85% (sample size = 13)
  • The field win % in the semis when they are the lower seed = 23.67% (sample size = 207)
A difference of 30.17%

Those differences are not random luck.

To come back to the field PSU would need to lose their next 17 semis when higher seeds and when lower seeds. Remarkable.”
