    If people are into bracketology stuff, here's a site that lists a ton of them.

    The Bracket Project - Ranking the Bracketologists

    Note how the Bracket Matrix (the consensus forecast, if you will) would be ranked near the top, around 8th place. As a fun note, if you look at weather forecast contests, consensus forecasts (the average of everyone's forecasts) usually do pretty well, better than most individual forecasters. So it's a good thing to pay attention to, in case any of the highly ranked individuals is having an off year.

    This would depend on what date you looked at each site. We know what ISU needs to do, more or less, to make the tournament regardless what these sites say.
