    Tim Floyd's Big 12 Standings...

    I always thought Tim Floyd had an interesting strategy for judging conference success...it's more truthful than a team playing two home patsies and going 2-0, and having a better record than a team playing two tough road opponents and being 0-2...the point system went as followed...+1 point for a road win, 0 for a road loss, 0 for a home win, and -1 for a home loss. Here is how it would shake down as of right now.

    1. Oklahoma +5
    1. Kansas +5
    3. Missouri +3
    4. Texas +1
    5. Kansas State 0
    5. Nebraska 0
    5. Oklahoma State 0
    8. Baylor -2
    8. Texas A&M -2
    10. Texas Tech -3
    10. Iowa State -3
    12. Colorado -4

    Our women are currently +1.

    Re: Tim Floyd's Big 12 Standings...

    Isn't, at the end of the season, this even with the real standings anyway?

    Also, a road loss is just as good as a home win?

    In terms of difficulty, according to Floyd, yes.

    Yep, it all ends out the same...it's just a more truthful (imo) way to look at things until later in the conference season (it's more honest if a team is 7-5, but they have 3 road games left, where as a 6-6 team has 3 home games left...stuff like that).

    Weird stuff. I guess this is good for during the season. But yeah, at the end, oddly enough, its the same.

    Re: Tim Floyd's Big 12 Standings...

    The coach from MIT uses this formula:

    Home win = (Opponents win % * Margin of Victory)/2
    Home loss = (Margin of loss / pi)
    Road loss = (pi * Opponent home win %)/Margin of loss
    Road win = 3

    I could have sworn you just added together your players's jersey numbers and divided by three.

    please correct me if im wrong

    I think this is just another theory to rationalize our poor play.

    How in the world would it be "another theory to rationalize our poor play"? We'll finish the same in these standings as we finish in the real Big 12 standings, whether that's good or bad.

    In the end the standings will be the same but right now it makes ISU look a lot better than it is. Thats how.

    The standings as they are now are an accurate description of Iowa State. Close to the bottom.
