      Inspired by a thread I found on another Big Ten team's message board regarding historical KenPom rankings, I went through and compiled some rankings data for Nebraska.  This 30,000 foot view of where we have been over nearly the past two decades has been interesting to me, some thoughts about this info to follow:
       
      Year - Coach ----- Starting -- High -- Low -- Final -- (Strength of Schedule)
      ==============================================
      2002 - Collier (13-15) -- N/A -- N/A --- N/A --- #103 -- (#75)
      2003 - Collier (11-18) -- N/A -- N/A --- N/A --- #138 -- (#25)
      2004 - Collier (18-13) -- N/A -- N/A --- N/A --- #40 ---- (#86)
      2005 - Collier (14-14) -- N/A -- N/A --- N/A --- #80 ---- (#67)
      2006 - Collier (19-14) -- N/A -- N/A --- N/A --- #111 -- (#90)
      2007 - Sadler (17-14) -- N/A -- N/A --- N/A --- #82 ---- (#60)
      2008 - Sadler (20-13) -- N/A -- N/A --- N/A --- #39 ---- (#69)
      2009 - Sadler (18-13) -- N/A -- N/A --- N/A --- #63 ---- (#58)
      2010 - Sadler (15-18) -- N/A -- N/A --- N/A --- #93 ---- (#47)
      2011 - Sadler (19-13) -- #76 -- #34 --- #81 --- #64 ---- (#77)
      2012 - Sadler (12-18) -- #53 -- #51 --- #158 -- #152 -- (#11)
      2013 - Miles (15-18) -- #214 -- #127 - #218 -- #136 -- (#8)
      2014 - Miles (19-13) -- #123 -- #44 -- #123 -- #56 ---- (#18)
      2015 - Miles (13-18) -- #36 ---- #34 -- #131 -- #121 -- (#43)
      2016 - Miles (16-18) -- #139 -- #79 -- #156 -- #85 ---- (#73)
      2017 - Miles (12-19) -- #85 ---- #71 -- #105 -- #107 -- (#14)
      2018 - Miles (22-11) -- #97 ---- #50 -- #114 -- #55 ---- (#59)
      2019 - Miles (19-17) -- #38 ---- #11 -- #45 ---- #47 ---- (#9)
       
       
      Initial take aways for me
      The move to the Big Ten.  That move has had a MAJOR impact on our Strength of Schedule, probably has been the single most significant factor in our KenPom ranking over time. Miles' rankings indicate that he may not have actually elevated the program with much significance over the Collier/Sadler eras, however, SOS improvement may be a factor at play. KenPom uses historical data to influence rankings moving forward, and it appears we are definitely trending upward.  It will be interesting how the trend continues under Hoiberg, and with that said...  
      Here is the same info for Hoiberg's tenure at Iowa State:
       
      Year -------- Starting -- High -- Low -- Final -- (Strength of Schedule)
      ========================================
      2011 - (16-16) -- #175 -- #32 -- #175 -- #81 -- (#78)
      2012 - (23-11) -- #120 -- #26 -- #125 -- #26 -- (#32)
      2013 - (23-12) -- #62 ---- #26 -- #65 ---- #30 -- (#50)
      2014 - (28-8) ---- #39 ---- #10 -- #39 ---- #20 -- (#4)
      2015 - (25-9) ---- #25 ---- #14 -- #32 ---- #16 -- (#6)
       
       
      Take aways here
      McDermott left Iowa State in a shambles it seems, and even though his record in year 1 was lackluster, Hoiberg did in fact improve the team that year The turnaround there was shocking and nearly instantaneous Improvement was significant and sustained, look at the Strength of Schedule component!  
       
       
       
       
      So what do you guys think?  Comments are welcome.  If someone would like to go through and compile some recruiting rankings data, it would be interesting to compare the two.

      Now that practice has started, I think it's close enough to the season to get the KenPom thread for this year going again (and also to beat Actuary to the punch on starting the KenPom thread, finally).
       
      So, here are the final KenPom rankings for last year with our 2015-16 schedule.  I expect the new rankings to come out in a couple weeks but for now this should be a decent enough spot to start some discussion.
       
      I can see Goodman's point, it does look kinda cupcake-y, but also there's quite a few games that will be much bigger challenges.  What do you think???

      Well, folks, it's getting to be that time of year again.  Nights are getting cooler (finally), football season is well underway, soon the leaves will be turning, and 49r is starting the KenPom Rankings Thread.  
       
      For anyone interested in viewing last year's thread, you can click here.
       
      We're going to start off this year as always with the upcoming schedule and each team's final rankings from last season, and there is no doubt #98 is not anywhere near where your Huskers are gonna be starting off in the initial KenPom Rankings due around the end of the month.
       
      If I were a betting man, I would say we'll probably be lucky to start off in the top 150 this year, once again putting us squarely in the bottom four of the B1G.  The good news is the guys will have plenty of opportunities early on in the season to make quick jumps up the KenPom rankings with some wins.
       
      So without further ado, here we go!  Hope everyone enjoys!

      KenPom's preseason rankings are released. We are #34. I'll let 49r do his usual, thorough analysis if he wants to.
       
      There are 11 Big Ten teams in the top 40.

      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!
