Re: Conference and World tournament winning percentages vs other classes
the only stat missing is major against major from this post. also.. to play devils advocate. the major teams tend to play more often and there are less of them. 4 major teams last year payed 78 games against A teams. AA played 143 games agains AA but there are more than double the amount of AA teams. so as a rule it's about the same. major played B teams 32 times.. 4 major teams.. AA played them 53... again 8 AA teams.
if you factor in the amount of teams in each class it looks like they play the same percentage of lower class teams. I'm not refuting your original argument against stat padding.. but saying this presentation of numbers is flawed.
