    Re: We're #1!

    Lol, small sample size. But we're 2-0 against it's Top 25, something nobody else has on that site. Might be why we're listed #1.


    I noticed that during the low periods of my life, when I was suffering from anguish, sorrow or defeat, I could see only one set of footprints, so I said to the Lord,
    “You promised me Lord, that if I followed you, you would walk with me always. During the most trying periods of my life there has only been one set of footprints in the sand. Why, when I needed you most, have you not been there for me?”
    “Because,” says the Lord, “Sandpeople always ride single-file, to hide their numbers.”

    Re: We're #1!

    That will be more interesting in a couple more weeks. But always nice to recognized for the efforts. ISU has played two tough games back to back and won both. Now refocus and get ready for three games against decent comp after Thanksgiving.

    Re: We're #1!

    Makes more sense than KenPom where we only moved up 3 spots after two wins that are better than any two combined wins by any other team in the nation...while teams who have played sub 300 SOS keep moving up in front of us because of his dumb formula based on not losing players and winning without scoring much. We could probably blow out Duke and Kansas in our next two games and not crack the top 20 in KenPom because we didn't do it with players from last year's team in a defensive struggle, that's basically his formula. You're good if you win with last year's players and/or win without scoring much.

    Cool site for stats and trends, cool site for predicting individual game winners and losers although no better than Sagarin predictor, but horrendous system of actually ranking who deserves to be ahead of who according to quality of wins and losses.

    I don't think anyone in the country has a better road win at this point. And certainly not a better combination of wins.

    ... and Iowa is the defending national runner-up.


    I noticed that during the low periods of my life, when I was suffering from anguish, sorrow or defeat, I could see only one set of footprints, so I said to the Lord,
    “You promised me Lord, that if I followed you, you would walk with me always. During the most trying periods of my life there has only been one set of footprints in the sand. Why, when I needed you most, have you not been there for me?”
    “Because,” says the Lord, “Sandpeople always ride single-file, to hide their numbers.”
