I went and ran this another 100 times, so I could see what it would look like without the variance. The mean scores are:

A: 32.03
B: 28.53
C: 32.48
D: 24.94
E: 28.75
F: 29.62
G: 28.42
H: 26.12
I :26.06
J: 26.10
K: 36.15
L: 27.21
M: 25.14
N: 34.37
O: 31.06
P: 26.55
Q: 34.95
R: 32.93
S: 37.08
T: 26.43
U: 24.24

If you're interested, here's the code for the test (takes a day to run) and the raw output for my run (an inconvenient format, but it shows the stats for the matchups).

I tried to run this with racket and #lang scheme (as well as #lang racket) but didn't get it to work (though I didn't try for very long), perhaps because of backward compatibility issues. This is a bit unfortunate because it makes it harder for people interested in this topic to profit from the results and submitted programs of this tournament. Maybe you or Alex could write a brief description of how one could get the program tournament to run?
