What I really want to know is how Bartlett only warrants a 1% chance...

Should be a solid 0%  due to a guy named Yianni. Even if Bartlett won Big 10, he'd need a Yianni loss in EIWA along with ACC, Pac12, Big 12 and SoCon favorites to all drop like rocks.

Check your sarcasm meter, my friend!

I was looking at the likely Big 10 seeds and something jumped out at 141. When I was debating between Lee and Rivera for the #1 seed, I looked at who they beat. Rivera has beaten the likely 10, 11, 12, and 14 conference seeds. His other four conference wins are all back ups. While he shouldn't be faulted for beating a very weak schedule (and beating them by a whole lot), I do discount the bonus rate/dominance a bit. On the other hand, Rivera does pass the sniff test. The one time I saw him he looked pretty jacked. 

I have him beating Eierman in the 2/3 semi, Lee beating Red in the 1/4 semi, and Lee taking the conference title.

I have Rivera winning Big 10, Lee winning the national title

5 has happened three times. 

1941: Oklahoma State with 5 #1 seeds out of eight weights. 

1969: Oklahoma with 5 of the #1 seeds out of 11 weights. 

1970: Iowa State with 5 of the #1 seeds out of 10 weights. 

In addition to the 5 listed above, 4 #1 seeds in a season has happened 10 times. 
5 by Oklahoma State, 4 by Iowa and 1 by Oklahoma.

I believe Okla State did it twice before '41 (Without going back one was '28 and then again a couple years later) but I can't prove it other than by bracket position and knowing that it would be likely that they would have a lot of high seeds and it would have been too coincidental to see that otherwise.

Obviously Gimp, we're limited by what information we've got. Boomer's database started tracking the seeds in 1940, right? 

1940 is the earliest tourney for which I see seeds (top 3) indicated on the brackets.

So none in the last 50 years. Interesting.

Wasn't trying to contradict per se. I'm saying I suspect those were seeds. But can't prove it.
