    Re: Is Texas Tech in Lubbock a trap game?

    I was the at OSU-TTU game last night, the quick scouting report (and only worry) is that Tubby will go zone to throw off an offense. It worked against OSU for a few possessions, and Tech went on a...

    Re: 1/18 RPI

    Here's how you do it better: make the SOS part of the metric based on MOV or efficiency. There's no incentive to blow teams out (which is why you wouldn't include MOV in the team's own contribution...

    Re: 1/18 RPI

    All other things being equal, ISU would be 13th in RPI with a win at Baylor.

    Re: KenPom Big 12 Projections 1/18

    No, Sagarin's ELO ratings are purely win/loss based and Golden Mean and Predictor are margin of victory based with no consideration to wins and losses. If you're trying to predict outcomes, Predictor...
  7. Re: Fans: Quit basking in the glory of ESPN and the praise and do your REAL job!

    If we're not angry enough about Wednesday's loss, they won't play with energy for the whole 40 minutes and the coaches won't use the right strategy.

    Re: What I Don't Understand...

    So do you believe they intentionally didn't play hard? Like, are the players trying to throw the game? I don't understand this train of thought. Why would they not play to win? Playing poorly doesn't...

    Re: What I Don't Understand...

    "I just really want..." "We want..." "want" "want" "want"

    It seems like a lot of posters that are upset or angry believe that they want the team to win more than the players and coaches do. Or...

    Re: This is a Final Four team

    You're right. The reaction to this has shown that a lot of posters on this board do need to grow up and stop overreacting to a single game.

    Oh, wrong "we"? Yeah, everyone, let's keep telling the...

    Re: Ken Pom 10,000 simulations

    By KenPom's winning percentages, ISU's expected (as in "expected value") to go 9.65-6.35 over the rest of the regular season. By Sagarin, 9.57-6.43. Obviously, KenPom is horrible.

    Re: ARKANSAS

    WRT RPI, it doesn't matter either way. It's computed using opponents' winning percentages, nothing to do with their actual RPI.

    Re: TV Problem for Saturday's Game

    ESPNN will probably never be an overflow option during the conference season since they're airing games on it now. Better have a computer ready at the start of every game, yay.
  14. Re: So after seeing some games around the country

    One reason is that pace of play has gotten slower and slower recently: http://kenpom.com/blog/index.php/weblog/entry/the_slowest_season . Fewer possessions -> fewer points. I know Hoiberg has said...

  16. Re: KSU and WVU, and predicting number of conference wins this year

    OSU is certainly possible. Their success this season has mostly come from a pressing defense (start salivating now). Nash is content taking a lot of contested shots if a team can force the ball off...

    We loved the RPI this time last year because we played teams that won a lot. Now we hate it because we...

    Re: ISU and Drake saturday TV

    There are plenty of reasons why Cyclones.tv online is not ideal that go beyond cost. First and foremost, NeuLion sucks. No matter what computer I use to stream (even my gaming rig), the video still...
