    ISU Bracketology

    I will keep updating my latest Bracketology reports on my blog and link them here.

    I take into account:

    Human Polls (1/3)
    Computer Rankings (Massey, KenPom, Sagarin) --1/3
    Joe Lunardi S-Curve Updates--1/3

    I also detail some other things in the updates as well. Check out if you want.

    My math says we would be a 1 seed because we'd be unbeaten.

    Re: ISU Bracketology

    I like how you crunched the numbers for ISU specifically and also came up with the first-round opponent, obviously based on same principles.

    This will be fun to track throughout the season.

    Re: ISU Bracketology

    In a way that comeback had a similar value to a big win. Keeping bad losses of the resume is just about as good as getting a good win. The committee does value big wins over poor losses but this was still very, very important.

    Great point. We really need to avoid any non-con slip ups with the bottom 1/3 of the Big 12 looking so bad. There may be more opportunities for bad losses this year than most. With that said, I don't think it will be a bubble discussion but more of a seeding question.

    That 4.4% is #10 best in odds to win it all.
