Based on the Intermat Pre-Season Rankings and using historical probability of finishing top 8 by seed, I give you my projected AA totals by school for all schools with ~1 AA (rounding up in some cases):
You may note that there are 35 schools on my list. That would be at the high end of the range for the number of schools with at least 1 AA. The last time there were 35 was 2016.
Interpreting the Decimal
AA's come in whole numbers, so how can I have decimals?
The way to interpret the decimal is that it represents the probability of the next whole number greater than the number to the left of the decimal. For example, PSU is listed at 7.6 Predicted AA's. This means there is a 60% chance they will have 8 AA's (and a 40% chance they will have 7 AA's).*
*That is a bit of a simplification. I am slightly overstated the probability of 8 and 7 in my example by slightly understating the probabilities of 9, 10, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, and 0. But that result is no more interesting than the one I give.
