    Pomeroy going to subscription model... :(

    the kenpom.com blog

    I may have to pay if it's fairly cheap... as I'm really cheap. I love the data though.


    The Hawkeyes, who have lost six of their last seven games, were given a No. 11 seed and will be involved in one of the four first-round games by virtue of being one of the last four at-large teams to make the field. “It’s not a &%#$@%* play-in game!’’ McCaffery said when a reporter phrased it that way. McCaffery then hurled a bottle of G2 into the face of the reporter stating "you #$%*&@ idiot!".

    Why not put ads on the site?

    Re: Pomeroy going to subscription model... :(

    I can gaurantee you that I won't be as good as he is at producing that sort of data, however, I will be doing something similar on my site. It will probably be limited to the Big 12 but we'll see how it goes and I may figure out a way to expand that scope.

    I won't use any of the data to predict who will win like he did but I am planning to provide the review of team's performances and player performances as well.

    Re: Pomeroy going to subscription model... :(

    The $20 may well be worth it, especially considering he is working on a few more tools that could be neat to view. From my understanding if you are a subscriber he doesn't discriminate against using the data in a public forum. So perhaps a weekly update or game analysis would be worthwhile, the CF statistician khaal may be interested in that...

    Re: Pomeroy going to subscription model... :(

    His rating are posted today.

    He has the Cyclones at 13-18 (5-13) sitting #123 in Div. 1.

    I usually respect his opinion and rankings, but his computers must really hate our new players and the perceived lack of talent/chemistry/I don't what.

    That seems way low, even to be conservative.

    Re: Pomeroy going to subscription model... :(

    Since his ratings are all data based, new players who are difference makers aren't factored in at this point. Essentially, he has no data on a few guys who will make a extremely large impact on our team.

    Or, we are all WAY overhyping some of these guys. I'm going with the first option!

    The ratings will change dramatically once we get a few games into the season, as will all rankings and expectations.

    Re: Pomeroy going to subscription model... :(

    So long story short, he wants money for what he does. Why not just say that....don't give us the BS "this site has reached its saturation" blah blah.

    On principle I won't pay to view the site.

    And what right is it that you have to view all of this for free? He could have charged from the beginning and for all of the data, rather he will leave most still available for free and a cheap fee of $20 to view some of the best statistics available for NCAA basketball...
