2019-2020 KenPom Rankings Thread

Recommended Posts

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!

I take that to mean we are favored in only one league game this year? We're not even favored at home against Rutgers?

 

I say nonsense. Yeah, we don't have size. That's a problem.  But, from what I've seen, we still have a pretty solid back court.  And, in some respects, that backcourt is pretty exceptional.  We're going to put up points.  And, as a result, we're going to have a puncher's chance in almost every game.

Pomeroy released his preseason rankings overnight.  So let's see how things look.

 

As in the OP of the thread there will be some special formatting rules for this post.  I've included the 2019 final rankings (in parenthesis) as well as 2019 NCAA Tournament teams color coded in red and 2019 NIT Tournament teams color coded in blue.  Going forward I will lose the previous rankings for Big Ten teams as well as the round each tournament team finished in.  I think I will lose the color coding as well for the regular season updates unless people think it's useful.  Let me know in comments.

 

Finally, some of my own comments.  The biggest jumps made on the offseason by Big Ten schools include Ohio State (+33) and Illinois (+49).  Biggest drops come from Wisconsin (-29), Minnesota (-35) and Nebraska (-49).  In the non-con side the biggest jumps come from UC Riverside (+36), Washington State (+44), Loyola (+32) and Georgia Tech (+49).  Biggest non-con drops are South Dakota State (-116) and Old Dominion (-32).  I'm a little surprised that Minnesota dropped as far as they did.  I'm guessing the Amir Coffey injury factored into that.

 

Ken right now predicts a final record for Nebraska of 12-17 (5-15) - keep in mind he isn't including the second and third round games Cayman Islands games yet.  Barring injuries I'd expect us to do slightly better, probably right around the .500 mark.

This time last year I had every reason to think we were going to win the B1G. It’s fun to crunch the numbers & play the “what if” game, but NONE of us, the so-called experts or your average Joe-Bag-of- Donuts know how this will play out. I still think we’ll be better than expected & finish somewhere in the 6-10 range...

Am I interpreting this correctly? The "tracker" thinks we will go 1-19 in the conference? Really?

Hoiberg’s first Iowa State team got last in the Big 12, which was probably not as strong of a conference top to bottom as the Big Ten is now. That team had eventual conference POY Melvin Ejim, senior point guard Diante Garrett, who played a couple years in the NBA, and a couple other upperclassmen who were contributors/starters in the prior few seasons. 

 

I think we’ll win more than 1 conference game, but seeing how nearly our entire roster was put together in about 6 weeks this offseason (and only 3 of our players have ever played in a power 5 conference basketball game), I’d expect the all the preseason analytics to say Northwestern is the only team we can beat.

I guess this is where we say "DAMN YOU KEN POMEROY!! YOU KNOW NOTHING!!"

 

 

 

 

 

(but if you look closely...at the bottom of the schedule, just like the Torvik predictions earlier, Pomeroy says right now it looks like we'll go 5-15 in league play)

Just because a team only has, say, a 43% chance of winning a game doesn't mean they will 100% lose it.

 

0-20 isn't an outcome that is impossible.  Neither is 20-0.  It's just that 5-15, according to KenPom right now, is the most likely scenario.

It projects us as 5-15, not 1-19.  But we are actually favored only in one game.  The probability to win in each game predicts 4 upsets somewhere along the line.

 

To clarify how it works:  if by some chance you are given a 49% chance to win every single conference game, then if you went game by game it would tell you 0-20, but you would be expected to go 9-11 or 10-10.  If you are given a 51% chance in every single game, then game by game results would predict 20-0, but you'd be expected to go 10-10 or 11-9.

That's why you play the games. Did anyone really think Illini football would defeat Wisc. besides Lovie Smith?!

Also projecting the fastest tempo in Hoiberg's career:

 

I believe that is a reflection of how much the speed of the game has increased since Hoiberg last coached.  The shot clock went from 35 to 30 starting at the 2015-16 season and that has sped up the game.

      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.
