I don’t know about you, but I’ve been having trouble getting online and, you know, having electricity over the last couple of days. But, never fear, Maine Madness is back with the last set of the Round of 32!!!
The score of the higher seed is the target % that the underdog had to beat. So, in order to beat Lawrence, Noble needed to get 62% of the vote. They got 57%.
If you don’t want your team to suffer the same fate as Caribou, you gotta vote.
If you missed the details of Maine Madness, they’re here.
In order to pull off an upset, you need to exceed the favorite’s likelihood of winning. So, if the favorite is 60% to win, you need to get 60% of the vote to beat them. We’ve flattened that out so 80% is pretty much the limit and we’ll reveal the target % after the vote is finalized, but you can get a pretty good idea by the point spread. The number in [ brackets ] is not the target number. That’s the Stax Index that indicates how exciting the game should be. Don’t try to stall your way to a W.
