comment Why should random numbers come from a distribution?
So the distribution is an emergent property from randomness but does not actually describe the "causal" process that generated the randomness(the shuffling).

comment Determing the number of possible March Madness brackets
@Jeff I have now. I used a "binomial tree" approach. I feel this is definitely more intuitive. From the 32 teams that start, there are $2^{16}$ outcomes, then $2^{8}$ outcomes, then $2^{4}$ then $2^{2}$ then $2$. I square that quantity to take into account the other half. Then I multiply by 2 since there are two possible teams that can win the championship.
