Any statistics majors on board?
Forget formula: odds of only 2 teams from AAC in Tourney BOTH matched up against play in winners (play ins have now won 7 years in a row). I figure the odds to be astronomical and very unlikely to be random.

No, but I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night---and you are correct on both.

About the same as two non-P5 teams getting matched in first round when one could be switched to have P5/non-P5 games instead.

Just because the odds of something happening may be low, that doesn't mean there is a conspiracy.

No the odds against it NOT being done purposely would be akin to hitting $1M powerball.

I thought this thread would be about how you knew more than 99% of all statistics majors.

Odds are 100% that 2 six seeds would play the winner of the play in game. Three of the 6 seeds lost in their opener.
