Thanks!  Some things we need....

 

Clemson to stay in the Top 75.  That would make the win a Q1.

Minny to stay int he Top 75.  That would make the loss a Q1.

Seton Hall to jump into the Top 75.  Would make that win a Q2.

Missouri State to jump into the Top 200.  Would make that win a Q3.

 

Well, whadya know. Ask and ye shall receive.

I appreciate your work, 49r, and passion for Husker Hoops. I know 99% of those here do.   Many years ago, before most people on this site found it, I and a staff of several others (including

Todays letter...   Dear Casey,   Recently I went through a rough patch with a dear friend Nebraska Basketball.  We've been through a lot together and yesterday we got into a fight

I am not sure how long KenPom has been around, but I honestly just realized it wasn't KenPorn.

It's insane to think that a #21 KenPom ranking is only good enough for 6th place in the B1G!  But KenPom still predicts 20 wins for us and 11-9 in conference play.

 

Seton Hall's win was only good enough to move them up a couple spots.

 

Okay, here we go:

I'll take it. I'll take it right now.  Don't even have to play the games.

The thing about this team that makes an 11-, 12- or 13- win conference season seem not just possible, but even plausible if not likely, is that we have six guys who can score the basketball.  We've had teams where you felt pretty good because you had 3 guys who could score the basketball.  We have six.  No exaggeration.  Six.

 

Any team that scouts us has to account for six guys who can score the ball.  And I mean six guys who can score at the rim, from mid-range, and from beyond the arc.

 

If we have more than one or two guys who are "feelin it," look out.

I was curious as to how this year's struggling conferences were stacking up to last year's historically awful, might as well be the Missouri Valley, B1G conference. The BEast and SEC are currently worse than the B1G finished last year. It'll be interesting to see how much those conferences are punished.

And obviously the Pac 12 deserves Bill Walton talking about getting high during their games because the basketball isn't really worth watching.

      Good news everyone, the KenPom rankings (finally) dropped overnight!  I know everyone has been waiting with baited breath to see this thread appear in the Haymarket Hardwood, and now the wait is finally over!
       
      Because of all the chaos since March, I'm going to have to start off slightly different than in years past but I'll do my best to keep thing as uniform as possible.
       
      Like before I will start with last years season starting rankings (in parenthesis) then the season ending rankings in bold in the first post.   Additionally, I would've normally have 2020 NCAA Tournament teams color coded in red and 2020 NIT Tournament teams color coded in blue.  Since there was no 2020 postseason I will leave the color coding off.
       
      In my second post I will do the same thing but with the offseason rankings changes. (Final 2020 rankings in parenthesis then this year's starting rankings in bold)
       
      You'll notice that there is only Big Ten teams and Georgia Tech in the initial rankings.  Since we don't have a schedule these are the only known opponents at the moment.  This aspect of this years thread will be fluid, as we all probably expect it to be by now.
       
      Finally, if you notice any errors please let me know.  I think I got everything updated right here but I've been pretty distracted at work.  Also, don't forget to click here to see all the previous years' KenPom threads (I highly recommend going back through them, they're always fun to read).  Here we go!

      So here we are, October 1st and it's time once again to start the annual KenPom Rankings Thread.  By now I'd imagine most of you know how this works.  We'll start off the year with the final rankings of last season for each team in the Big Ten and each non-conference team on our schedule.  Also included will be the 2018 preseason rankings (in parenthesis) as well as 2019 NCAA Tournament teams color coded in red and 2019 NIT Tournament teams color coded in blue.
       
      Pomeroy's preseason rankings won't be out for a few more weeks, but just for reference, Bart Torvik does and he has us entering the 19-20 season at #95.  13th in the Big Ten.  I'd expect Pomeroy's number for us look pretty similar.  Bad thing too is our non-con schedule won't be doing us any favors so even if we win 9 of our 11 non con games we probably won't move up too much.
       
      Finally, if you notice any errors please let me know.  I think I got everything updated right here but I've been pretty distracted at work.  Also, just as I say every year, don't forget to click here to see all the previous years' KenPom threads (I highly recommend going back through them, they're always fun to read).  Here we go!

      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!
