Seems about right.
Its a guards game, and thats the problem for both schools.
Lol, they just went on the road 3 days ago in Champaign and won. I don't know how to tell you this, but life on the road in these Power Conferences is tough, especially when you have your most hated rival coming to town.

Disagree completely. I actually like that it's a black box because I don't want guys trying to game the system.

Yeah I don't mind that either but they need to adjust the weights. It's pretty clear to me that offensive efficiency is way to much of a factor.

If I had to guess, it's that the margin of victory is capped at 10, but the efficiency metrics aren't capped - so basically blowing teams out by 40 and doing while shooting 70% still matters a whole lot. Iowa did that very well against the cupcakes, and so did UT.

I feel like the 10+ margin of victory went away a couple years ago. The analytics are what's favoring and hurting certain teams. That's fine early in the season but you look at the data points a team like Iowa State has and it doesn't make sense.

What’s wrong with Cockburn? Also, does anybody else think if Wisconsin wins tonight they’re the favorite to win the b1g?

Concussion protocol.

And perhaps for Bucky. I'm still waiting for not being able to stop the ball to catch up with them.

Refs are just weird this year. Complete piles of players where it looks like there's gotta be a foul somewhere but nothing gets called.
