  1. Re: Best fans in college basketball...Weakest student section

    Mobile like... didn't even look it up and hey, two SWAC teams!
  2. Re: Best fans in college basketball...Weakest student section

    Those SWAC teams' fans just go nuts behind the basket on free throws and the whole arena gets raucous.

    Actually, I bet there's plenty of small school arenas that don't even have seating behind the...
  3. Re: enCYCLONEpedia: Controllable shooting defense

    The idea is that players don't take tightly contested threes, with a few exceptions, so any three point attempt that shows up in the boxscore can generally be regarded as uncontested. There's no...
  4. Re: Of the two Big 12 Games tonight (Tues) which outcomes help ISU the most?

    Frankly, it's too early to know. I don't think we'll know what the race is really like (other than Kansas must lose) for another couple weeks.
  5. Re: RealTimeRPI.com now projecting 20-10 record and no road wins

    This is why predictions like this should have percentages. Sure, ISU may not be favored in any particular game, but even if they only have a 33% chance to win each away game, you'd expect them to win...

    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.

    I don't know if it was at Gameday, but during the game I saw "Perry Ellis responds to long texts with k"

    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...
  12. 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.
  19. 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...
