    So, when will you be posting the brackets so we can get an idea for how much angst there is going to be in the latter stages?

    Thanks for doing all this, btw!

    • The plan is to post brackets on Sunday with everything else. I need to be sure I know what goes where before I can do that, but my analysis spreadsheets update that simulation with every vote. I also changed the order of the entries in the brackets, so if you’ve noticed where #1 started in the past two tournaments, well, that’s not where it’s starting now, and everything else adapts to match.
