Nate Silver’s stats-heavy FiveThirtyEight launched today. It’s owned by ESPN, but Silver, who is known for his political predictions, and his team will go well beyond sports. They picked a good day to launch and did so with a brand new NCAA Tournament bracket that gives you the probability of specific teams winning it all. It basically takes a dump on some selection committee choices, as evidenced by four-seed Louisville having a 15% chance of winning the National Championship– which is higher than any other team in the tournament.

Very cool and worth checking out.
