  1. Bart Torvik also has us projected as the only B1G team with a losing record overall which speaks to the strength of our non-con schedule. People have bemoaned the move to 20 conference games, the argument being that it will cause teams to drop home and home matchups against P5 opponents in order to satisfy the need to fill home dates. I'd argue that Nebraska probably needs to soften up it's non-con a bit because the teams we are competing against at the bottom of the B1G table have an advantage over us when it comes to postseason possibilities because a below .500 finish in the overall record automatically disqualifies us. I appreciate Miles' philosophy of scheduling and having faith in himself and his players - building a schedule favorable to getting a post season bid - but we gotta get a winning record first one of these seasons. I'd rather win 19 games with a softer non-con and just get an NIT bid than win 14 against a tough non-con and get locked out of the postseason altogether. Gotta walk before you run. Look at Creighton's non conference schedule last year for an example of what I'm talking about. All they had to do was eke out a win at home against a decent Wisconsin team (that always starts slow and progresses as the season goes on) then coast through the rest of a charmin soft schedule to a top-15 ranking. Here's the T-Rank for their non con opponents last year: 209 18 171 104 71 236 129 107 102 346 232 116 Here's ours: 289 n/r 94 42 21 46 48 153 29 5 184 330 We were 6-6 in games that the committee counts in our non-con last year.

    PAT CHAMBERS LIKES HIS BASKETBALL LIKE HE LIKES HIS COFFEE. EXTRA GRITTY!
  3. I get why folks are picking us so low, and why a Rutgers blogger would feel comfortable with picking their team to finish above us. But what I don't get is why folks are just SO down on Ohio State this year?

    LOL, Pat Chambers just finished his turn on the podium up and now I feel like I've just been yelled at mercilessly for about 10 minutes.

    You could sell 20,000 at $100 per easily for this event.
  7. Are these games "won" or "lost" really?
  8. Also, looking at the KenPom stuff a little closer it's apparent that Ben Howland went to the Doc Sadler school of non-con scheduling...at least last year.

  11. Is this the ***official*** game thread then @hhcdimes? Here is the MSU Scouting Report from last year on KenPom. They were an extremely young team last year that ended up about 20 spots higher than us in the KenPom final rankings. We're gonna get a strong test right away.

    if you go over to reddit and read the college basketball subreddit you'll see that is not always the case. Rutgers fans are really excited about Pikiell and feel like he's going to get them to rise up soon - they count Nebraska as automatic wins both home and away Illinois fans are a little uncertain about Underwood but I have seen comments from Illini fans that they expect to finish somewhere between 4th and 10th Penn State fans really love the talent that Chambers has on his team - they expect to be an NCAA tourney team this year, probably making a Northwestern type run Ohio State fans are probably waiting for football to end to remember they have a hoops team Really, it's the Nebraska fans over there that are the most hopeless bunch. They're the least optimistic of the lot. 13th to them is probably a surprise since they didn't expect to be picked that high.
