if you are not entertained because your team lost (the outcome for 90% of playoff teams), don’t think this “proves” your team isn’t the “best”. And if your team does win… well, you can think that your team is the “best”; even if the rest of us know this isn’t true
My gut sense is that the NBA and NFL almost always get their awesome teams into the finals. When there isn't an awesome team in a conference, then it's a crapshoot.
The NCAA is remarkably consistent. Lots of #1 seeds get to the Final Four. We remember the amazing upsets (some of which aren't crazy upsets but are lower-ranked teams that floundered early but were lights-out from January on.) Lots of upsets early on, but only a couple of real upsets at the end. If you get into was UK or UNC the better team last year, you can drive yourself nuts about 1 vs 1A (and about Marshall's injury) but most years the team that wins is one of the teams that had a real claim to being the best.
