  4. 2017 Gavitt Games Schedule

    Tim Miles is the creepy amusement park owner and Greg McDermott is Scooby Doo.
  5. 2017 Gavitt Games Schedule

    Along with death and taxes, there is one certainty in life, which I have come to terms with. And it is this: Tim Miles is never, ever EVER going to beat McDermott. (and you can put that to the tune of that catchy Taylor Swift song if you like)
  6. KenPom says: 107 Nebraska vs. 63 UCF UCF 73-68 (70%) Kissimmee, FL HP Field House and we've averaged 3.5 double figure scorers in our games so far and since it's a higher ranked opponent let's round down and say there will be 3 in this game

    SDSU moves up to 116th in KenPom, just 9 spots below us. Kansas beat them by 34.
  8. 2017 Advocare Tournament Schedule

    I'd say that's the most likely outcome, honestly. But 2-1 isn't necessarily out of the question either.

    Texas A&M is really good.
  10. It's October, practice has begun and @jimmykc has had his quicky in the sack with Lindy so that can mean only one thing. It's time to start this season's KenPom thread! As always, Nebraska starts off with a triple-digit ranking and is mired near the bottom of the league standings. Keep in mind these are the numbers as of the end of last season, KenPom won't release this year's rankings for a few weeks yet. A little format change for this year, I thought it might be a fun exercise to put the numbers from the end of 2015 in parenthesis just to show how the B1G teams progressed over the season last year (let me know if you want to keep this feature going throughout the season). Additionally, I listed the B1G teams that made the postseason and the round they eventually lost in. NCAA is in Red and NIT in Blue. Finally, don't forget to click here to see all the previous years KenPom threads. Here we go! KenPom rankings as of 4-03-17 ========================= B1G (0-0): (14) -> 19. Purdue S16 (58) -> 20.

    If there are two completely fraudulent top 25 teams early on in the season, they are Northwestern and UCLA. UCLA needed overtime AT HOME to beat KenPom #290 Central Arkansas. A team Baylor beat by 40!
  12. I'm not even against getting bench guys minutes, I just think if we're trying to be the kind of team that can harbor thoughts of winning in Omaha or pulling off an upset against KU, then we need to be beating North Dakota by 30 or more. Again, whether or not they are a tourney team or the Big Sky favorites, they still are a KenPom 250-ish team. We need to beat those teams much more handily. No matter how we do it.
  13. That's kind of a red herring. If a starter is injured in a blowout game or in practice or sitting on the bench or walking to class what difference does it make? He's still injured. Can't live life in fear of injury. And if recent history is any indication our starters could use all the "improving time" they can get.
  14. Just took a peek at the RPI rankings this morning (which are totally meaningless right now but what the hey) and look who's in the top 25! Rank School W-L RPI SOS Rank SOS Conf. Conf.

  15. I appreciate that, but this is division one! We're not out there playing practice - the idea is to win the game by as many points as possible.
  16. Looking forward to getting the MTE behind us on the schedule, it's one of the more annoying things I have to do each time I update the KenPom rankings early on in the season. As a side note to this, UCF is considered a Semi-Away game and is considered a Tier B matchup for us. St. John's was a Tier A game. KenPom rankings as of 11-20-17 ========================== B1G (0-0): 11. Purdue (17) 12. Michigan State (10) 29. Minnesota (36) 31. Wisconsin (31) 35. Maryland (41) 42. Michigan (32) 44.

  17. Scott Frost says...........NO?

    Honestly? Schadenfreude. Seeing all the Husker message boards being littered with Frost talk 24/7 for the past couple months has kind of made me a little weary of the whole thing.
  18. @Art Vandalay there's NCAA tourney teams, then there are Big Sky auto-qualifier #15 seed NCAA tourney teams...

    Updated with the Tech score: Date Rk Opponent Result Location Record Conf Fri Nov 10 18 267 Loyola MD W, 79-75 80 Home 1-0 Mon Nov 13 29 200 Saint Peter's W, 75-66 65 Home 2-0 Wed Nov 15 33 39 Creighton L, 92-88 76 Home 2-1 Sat Nov 18 36 133 La Salle W, 82-74 66 Neutral 3-1 Sun Nov 19 36 17 Texas Tech L, 85-49 67 Neutral 3-2 After just over one week of the season Northwestern has fallen from 18th to 50th. Tech skyrockets up to 17th. Iowa State is giving Boise the business right now.
  20. One could argue that all of Northwestern's "Home" games could be considered "Neutral" games this year since they're playing all their home games out in Rosemont. By no means should we look at them as a horrible team. But a few more non-con embarrassments like today and Collins may have his hands full getting his guys back to the tourney.

    No...no they haven't. Not at all. Fri Nov 10 18 266 Loyola MD W, 79-75 80 Home 1-0 Mon Nov 13 29 196 Saint Peter's W, 75-66 65 Home 2-0 Wed Nov 15 33 38 Creighton L, 92-88 76 Home 2-1 Sat Nov 18 36 133 La Salle W, 82-74 66 Neutral 3-1 Add a 36 point beatdown against Texas Tech to that list. Hopefully the Wildcats haven't hit rock bottom just quite yet...
  22. - North Dakota looked like a team of midgets to me, which may help explain why we seemed to perform better with smaller lineups in the game. - North Dakota is not a good team no matter how polite you want to be. We should have beat them by at least 30 and failing to do so is a disappointment in my opinion. - North Dakota having a transfer from Creighton (who was also their top scorer today) made me dislike them very, very much. I wish he would have fouled out. - Good...no...GREAT to see Copeland and Gill get hooked up with the 3 point shots, but again, a lot of their success shooting may be attributable to the ND players being so tiny. - Overall a win's a win, but this one was a solid "meh plus" in my book. On to Orlando. Maybe we can fit Scott Frost into the luggage compartment on the plane ride back.
  23. Actually, it was a neutral site game at the Mohegan Sun casino in Connecticut...the Hall of Fame Tip Off tournament, Boston College is playing in it too. I think Texas Tech might be pretty good this year, but yeah a 36 point loss is probably going to knock you out of the top 25. KenPom might be a little more forgiving, though, since he had them lower to begin with, and Tech is rated higher in KenPom.
