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.
    This is to make sure those epic 42-36 Big 10 games are worth a lot.

    Clearly you aren't we'll versed in sign language. He was estimating the number of points we win by against BYU. He needed to double salute.


    As far as depth goes though, the combination of White, Woodbury, Olaseni, Basabe, and Uthoff is much better than Niang, Ejim, Edozie, Gibson. Not because of the top 2, but because of the next 2 or 3. -DeanVogs

    understood but this is a performance-based rating: not a potential based rating.

    Re: We're #1!

    Notes:

    McD's last year we were rated as high as 30 and ended up in 82
    Last year Iowa ended up higher than Baylor in their final power rankings...

    Some questionable stuff about this but still entertaining.

    Big 12 is the only conference with 2 wins over top 25 teams.

    I normally dont call people out but this is wrong. Ohio state beat marquette like 50-32 or something like that. If that's exciting maybe I'm missing something.
