I generally am not a fan of Doyel, but he has this tidbit that I had not seen anywhere else: Jim Burr is not working the NCAA tourney because of some background check procedural issue.
A little googling led me to this site, which has some detailed analysis of refs:
I have to think Jim Burr not being a ref in the NCAA tourney is good for us, but I think a talented math / statistics analysis guy (Phauz, statprof, quinn) could really figure out from the statsheet.com site which refs are great for us and which are terrible.
Go to it!
Can't wait for Thursday!
