Prometheus (big) gave humans fire and per mythencyclopedia:
"Prometheus was given the task of determining how sacrifices were to be made to the gods. He cut up a bull and divided it into two portions. One contained the animal's flesh and skin, but they were concealed beneath the bull's stomach, the least appetizing part of the animal. The other consisted of the bones, wrapped in a rich layer of fat. Prometheus then asked Zeus to choose a portion for himself, leaving the other for humans. Fooled by the outward appearance of the portions, Zeus chose the one containing the bones and fat. Prometheus thus ensured that humans got the best meat."
Anchiale (small) was the titan goddess of the warming heat of fire

I requested tickets to the Minnesota game and haven't heard anything yet. Has anybody gotten confirmation of those? (All I see referenced about are the 2 game packages)
|3 years 51 weeks ago||Definitely. I don't have||
Definitely. I don't have access to that data but I'd definitely be interested in seeing that. I started out just playing with the bracket and it ended up looking like something interesting so I threw it up here.
What you mention would do a much better job of answering the question that I was originally curios about. I could also look at what the odds would be using a snake setup based strictly on kenpom or based on the averages kenpom ranking for each seed per the espn bracket.

|3 years 51 weeks ago||I totally agree that||
I totally agree that Florida's chances are pretty ridiculous and that they'll come down as the year goes on. I'll also have to check the math to make sure all the formulas are correct, but I'm pretty sure they are.
Just thought it would be interesting to look at how the odds broke down given this is the first time in a long time Michigan has been poised for a deep tourney run. This just emphasizes how much luck is involved.
Also, if there is any interest to see this regularly, it's pretty easy for to update.

I can't create a thread, so I figured I'd toss this in here
With all the talk about seedings and potential national championship runs, I've been curious about what the odds look like for Michigan getting to the Final Four / Championship Game / Winning it all.
I decided to take ESPN's bracket and calculate the odds using KenPom's Pyth score to simulate the bracket. The percentage in each column reflects the odds of the team reaching that round given the opponents they are likely to face along the way.
The percentages are calculated using a composite of a team's odds of winning against all possible opponents they might face in a given round rather than just against the team they are most likely to see. I think this gives a better overall picture.
Here's what I have:
Let me know what you think

This defense is going robe GOOD next year. We lose Campbell (easily replaced by Pipkins), Demens (a little more difficult but Ross or Bolden have looked decent in their time this year and the freshman to sophomore jump will be huge for them especially with Mattison's coaching), Roh (SDE was his calling but our recent recruits have been getting high praise so I'm not worried) and Kovacs (huge loss but hopefully MRob comes along. He's looked ok in his time this year). Plus we get Countess back.
In all, I think every unit on defense will be significantly better with the exception of the secondary which should break even. I hate to look ahead with a potential big 10 championship in sight this year but man it feels good to see this team getting back to where it should be.
