    Outside the men's room: Judgment week

    Here are some thoughts on this week for men's basketball and where the team could be headed as well as a little wrap-up on the football season.

    Feedback is appreciated.

    Re: Outside the men's room: Judgment week

    Nice writeup. I too spend way too much time looking at the kenpom site.

    Here's what I was looking at this morning. Right now he has Iowa, Cal and Virginia all about the same (79, 80, 82). He has 3 teams in the big 12 at or worse than that (Tech at 81, CU at 109, OU at 111).

    So, in other words, the BEST teams on our non-conference schedule would (according to kenpom) finish 9th in the Big 12. I guess that's just reiterating that our non-con schedule is really weak.

    Also, according to the rankings as they exist today, we are 8th (nebraska is 73). If (leaving home/away out of it) we beat every team we play that is ranked lower than us today, we would go 15-0 in non-con and 6-10 in conference, and probably 1-1 in the conference tourney, leaving us at 22-11 on the season. A 22-11 that would include (possibly) zero wins over tournament teams, and leave us in the NIT. (which I would take in a heartbeat).

    Or it says that the Big 12, like always, is really good.
    But yes, our non-con definitely isnt strong. But thats exactly what we need right now to instill confidence in our players. Our bball team hasnt played with confidence in quite a few years. The Hoiberg era is beginning perfectly! Exactly how it needs to. The future is bright.
