I guess if you are defining par or "pretty good" with the Mendoza line.


I don't think comparing it to the hype blurs anything - it is essentially comparing it to ex ante expectations, where it has failed much more often than not. And there are schools other than Dook and UK who've made attempts at the model intentionally (Wash, Mizzou, Memphass, Kansas, UNCheat with CA) or by happenstance (Okla - T Young) and also failed.

It is really hard to win against the field, so the NCAAT is a hard metric - but that is the stated goal.
