-KenPom did extraordinarily well, even beating chalk.  His rankings are currently in the 98th percentile at ESPN.  

-Amusingly enough, the most predictive poll was the Yahoo Fans, narrowly edging out AP, coaches, and ESPN polls.

-RPI is the worst computer ranking so far (though it does have a good upside).  It is only narrowly beating "Total Tourney Wins", a ranking unconnected to the current teams.

-The ranking with the highest possible score is Transitive Margin, which only lost two Elite Eight teams and still has its entire Final Four.
