    The Jay Bilas Index: Top 68 Teams

    Jay Bilas ranks the nation's top 68 teams - College Basketball - ESPN

    The Bilas Index measures basketball merit and proficiency, and is calculated constantly and trended over time for accuracy that makes a laser look like a dull machete wielded by a shaky-handed hack. The Bilas Index is a synthesis of the best measures and practices in the game, all brought together by the most powerful force in the game's history: the high-functioning brain, basketball experience and perspective of The Bilastrator. The Bilas Index is dedicated to providing all of the answers in the game, and is not just some after-the-fact measure of changed variables. The Bilas Index is concerned not with "snapshots" that are simply lagging indicators that shuffle things around for the sake of today's discussion, but rather reliable measures that are predictive of future outcomes and, in some ways, help determine future outcomes. The Bilas Index is the ultimate leading indicator.
    46. Iowa State Cyclones (Previous ranking: No. 39)
    The Cyclones lost to top-20 teams Cincinnati and UNLV, but Will Clyburn and Tyrus McGee have been very good to start the season. Unfortunately, Michigan State transfer Korie Lucious is shooting only 28 percent from the floor and is turning the ball over more than four times per game.

    ^^^I think Korie gets on track with some more games... we'll be fine - still projected as a 13 seed

    Re: The Jay Bilas Index: Top 68 Teams

    I would love a 12-13 seed....much better than 8-9. Just have to get hot at the end of the year and forget the seeding.

    Yea, I'm not terribly worried just yet. This team still has time to find it's feet.

    Re: The Jay Bilas Index: Top 68 Teams

    I'm assuming this includes the small conference champs? So we would be on the very edge of the bubble. Obviously a lot can change.

    If you ask the basketball analysts outside the state of Iowa I think you would be surprised to hear their responses. Iowa was pegged as a preseason top 5 team by one ESPN analyst and is ranked in the vast, vast majority of preseason top 25 polls

    55. Iowa Hawkeyes (Previous ranking: No. 59)
    The Hawkeyes are 5-1 and have lost only to Wichita State (though so did VCU). The problem for Iowa has been offensive efficiency; the Hawkeyes have shot the ball poorly, and have turned it over at a high rate. When you turn the ball over, you don't get a shot, a chance for an offensive rebound or a chance for a foul -- and you put yourself at a disadvantage going the other way.

    Re: The Jay Bilas Index: Top 68 Teams

    Still too early to tell much about the season. I do think the Clones are already at a crossroads after the two losses. We will get to see if this team is a team that will start to step it up throughout the season or not. Looking for some nice strides to be made the next few weeks. W's over both Drake and the U of I this year will be a good sign.


    Smoke um if you got um

    Re: The Jay Bilas Index: Top 68 Teams

    4-2 and two losses to good teams is much better for shaping a team than 6-0 against cupcakes IMHO

    I don't have Insider, so I can't see the list, but I think Bilas does just straight "top 68" -- based on at least one column I read when he said tournament field should be all at-large. If I recall properly.

    (I typically respect his analysis, but I disagree with him on that -- I like the mix of auto qualifiers and best-of's)

    Re: The Jay Bilas Index: Top 68 Teams

    I like that we have faced two good teams, so we know what we need to improve on. I would have hated to go into Big 12 season thinking we are OK at point guard. We are still far enough away that we can address that issue and try to get it taken care of. We are only six games into the season, and already KL knows that he needs to be more of a distributor than a scorer.

    Re: The Jay Bilas Index: Top 68 Teams

    I didn't look at the list but I assume he has Duke occupying spots 1 through 12.

    Heh-heh. But wrong.

    I can see Nos. 1 & 2 without insider -- IU & Lewisville.
