    Latest Sagarin Ratings

    Time to visit the old fellow ratings again for bball:
    http://www.usatoday.com/sports/sagarin/bkt0809.htm
    #6 Oklahoma
    #8 Texas
    #17 Missouri
    #18 Baylor
    #19 Kansas
    #46 Nebraska
    #53 Texas Tech
    #64 KSU
    #68 Okie State
    #62 Iowa
    #93 Drake
    #126 ISU
    #171 UNI
    #205 Colorado

    Looks like in our 16 conference games, we will be favored both times against Colorado at the level of our current play. That is it.

    This post has some interesting data that isn't just confined to a meltdown type thread. While the data might be negative I do think it is interesting. Does our play on the court have to reflect that data? Doesn't have to...but we will see...

    You are right, but then you read the last sentance and the various other posts by this user. Everyone wants their own little meltdown thread so they can feel important.

    Re: Latest Sagarin Ratings

    To add more Sagarin opponent ratings:
    Iowa #62 - expect loss
    Houston #52 - maybe loss
    Jacksonville State #98 - maybe loss
    Houston Baptist #343-expect win, one of the ten worst teams in basketball
    Hawaii ##227 - should have won
    SIU Edwardsville - #321 one of the ten worst reams in bball, expect win
    SDSU - #277 - expect win
    Miss Valley State - #327 won, one of the ten worst teams in bball
    Mercer - #162 expect win
    Creighton - #45 local team

    Just looking at how the teams are playing, we might expect three more non conference losses and up to fourteen conference losses. Looks like someone has their work cut out for them. And this is replyu to people saying 6-2 is okay. Not according to Sagarin. The Hawaii game shouyld havbe been a gift.

    Re: Latest Sagarin Ratings

    Right now Sagarin shows 7 of ten MVC teams playing at a higher level than our team which resides in the 11th position in Big 12. So we would be in the bottom half of the MVC if we switched leagues. This shows we must pick up and play much better. This is Year Three of the Change.

    Not me...I'm more than content to post in every one else's meltdown threads.

    I do have to say though that your condescending, overly-sarcastic material is quite the breath of fresh air today...
