2019-2020 KenPom Rankings Thread

Recommended Posts

...and if you're a glutton for punishment, then go ahead and check out Bart Torvik's 2021 projections.  http://barttorvik.com/trankpre.php

 

Nebraska is the only Big Ten team outside the top #100 (at #107).  The next lowest ranked Big Ten team is Maryland at #73.

 

He does leave Stevenson and Walker out of his projected contributors for Nebraska though http://barttorvik.com/rosters21.php?team=Nebraska&year=2021. Not sure why because Banton is in there along with Mayen, Webster and Allen.

A new standard of futility! 

 

 

Not even close.  We clocked in at #218 after our loss to Kent State at home in November of 2012:  https://kenpom.com/team.php?team=Nebraska&y=2013

His algorithm doesn't have Stevenson or Walker in the top 10 players for Nebraska.

I guess I can accept that answer...but OTOH I have a hard time accepting Charlie Easley as a lock for top 10 in next year's rotation.

      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.

      October is here, practice has begun and that can mean only one thing.  It's time once again to start the KenPom ranking thread!  For the first time in a while Nebraska will be starting off in the middle of the B1G pack.  We're hoping to build on last season's success and maybe do some pretty great things this season.  We finished last year at #55, no idea where Ken will have us to start, but Bart Torvik's T-Rank system (which is pretty similar to KenPom) currently has us at #36, good for 5th best in the B1G.
       
      Once again I'm going to start the thread with each team's rank to start the previous year (in parenthesis) and how they finished.  Additionally, the teams on our schedule that made the postseason are color coded with the round the team lost noted.  NCAA is in Red and NIT in Blue.
       
      Finally, 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!

      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.
