As I noted yesterday, the final will be very close, with George Washington University edging out Villanova by two months, 1988.08.01 to 1988.10.05.

Other people have come up with their own systems. The person a few doors down from me chose an algorithm that can be captured in three words: "Shorter name wins". But my favorite is somebody whose highly scientific method is "The team that pays its basketball coach more."
