2020-2021 KenPom Rankings Thread

still, I'm loving this finish. it's what this program desperately needed (and us fans, too). That sliver of light just keeps getting just a bit bigger with each week. And if we can see it, so can the players.

 

 

to me, this season feels a lot like the 2012-13 season.  Pretty dismal for the most part but remember we closed down the BDSC with a few pretty impressive wins which catapulted us to quite a lot of success the next year at PBA.

 

We started off in the fall of 2012 with a sub-TWO HUNDRED kenpom ranking.  Let that soak in a bit.  We hit our high point at #127 after our first round win over Purdue in the BTT.

 

It's fun to go back through the old KenPom rankings threads.  I should keep on top of updating these more (even after losses) and try to write more commentary like I used to.  Here's that very first KP Rankings thread if anyone wants a laugh:

You can be an above average team, going 13-5 in conference play and 22 wins on the season, then being told you really haven't proved anything because "the conference is down this year."

Just wait. If Trevor Lakes gets eligible this year, you might hear talk from me about breaking into the top 105.

So if we "get the Covid" and don't play another game until March first-- at the rate we are moving without playing-- we'll be 49th and darn near lock territory.  Win a game or two in the Big 10 tourna

For a bit of perspective, our low point this year (despite all of the well-documented challenges and playing in the highest rated conference ever in the history of mankind) was #130 for the Illinois game at home.  Even though we lost that game we jumped up to #127 and now stand at #91 going in to tonight's game at Iowa.

Only slipped to #95 in today's KenPom rankings.

 

But we did move up to the #3 overall schedule strength.  Iowa dropped a spot in SOS:

Well, another year is in the books, and it was a mostly terrible one.  Massively shortened by covid, we put a team out there that had essentially zero Big Ten playing experience against the deepest, oldest, most talented, highest ranked Big Ten conference ever.  Possibly the best college basketball conference in the history of the NCAA, and I honestly don't think that's hyperbole.  I could easily see us finishing in the top half of a mediocre conference like the Pac 12 or Big East this year.

 

We started off the season without Eduardo Andre (covid) and Derrick Walker (suspension), and just as we got those two back, we had to pause for almost a month while the rest of the team and some coaches fought through covid.

 

We had our top scorer get suspended for violating team rules and subsequently leave the team to focus on his future.

 

We played 14 games in 30 days - a feat that on its face is an incredibly Herculean task for anyone, let alone college student athletes - and despite all those hurdles we saw the team make improvements in leaps.

 

Our shooting improved throughout the season, our assists and rebounds significantly improved and we were never really blown out except for games on the road against the 4th and 7th best teams in the nation.

 

We started the season ranked #117, dropped as low as #130 after the loss at home to Wisconsin, rose to as high as #91 after throttling Rutgers at home and finished up the year at #93.  It's a small step, but it's a trend in the right direction.  If we do in fact bring the core of this team back next year, one could see how great strides can be taken further down the path of where we want to be.

 

This is going to do it for KenPom updates for this season, as always it's been a pleasure to put this together.  Hopefully next year there will be more reasons for me to update more frequently!  😁  But with all that said, and without further delay...

 

Here is today's KenPom update:

Wow... 14 in the top 14.  That is amazing really.  Especially with no OOC schedule for anyone this year.

 

Maybe we weren't that bad.  Throw in Creighton and Georgia Tech to the mix makes for an unbelievably tough schedule. When a solid Nevada team is your worse loss, wow.

We weren't.  Put us in the Big East or Pac 12 and we're a bubble team.

 

Like the optimism, but I'm not so sure about that. We struggled in the first half of the season, then started to find a rhythm. And even playing a weaker nonconference schedule in the Big East or Pac-12, we still would have had to finish in the top 3-4 teams. I struggle believing we're a Top 25% team in those conferences this year.

I don't at all.  After the top 3-4 teams in either of those leagues it's pure garbage.  And we were very competitive in pretty much every game we played...the third most difficult schedule in the nation.  I think we would have had a real good shot at top 4 in both of those leagues.

Lol.   Not so much.  We lost to a bad NW team and Penn St twice.   Neither one of those would be in top half of either conference

They would both be in the top half of the big east.

With PSU likley hiring Shrewsberry while MINN and IND are now looking for their next head coach, I would like to see us at least get to #10 in the B1G next season (finishing ahead of those three teams as well as NW).

 

Every other Big Ten team is in the Big Dance this year.  Right?  That's 9 NCAA Tourney eligible teams, three teams that fired their coaches, NW and NU.

Not trolling you what-so-ever, this just came to mind as I'm watching the UCLA/Michigan State game. Curious to hear your thoughts.

 

Where do you see us stack up against UCLA? They're the #4 team in the Pac-12. We lost to Michigan State in both of our attempts this year; UCLA just knocked Michigan State out of the tournament. I just struggle to see our roster matching up against UCLA and being in the top 4 of the Pac-12 this season. Sure, there's 10 Pac-12 teams better than us in the NET rankings and a large part of that is likely attributed to our losses in such a heavy SOS league, but I'd probably lean closer to #5-7 in the Pac-12 than I would #1-4.

Not sure what happened but MSU was getting set to destroy UCLA and then it looks like they just lost interest or something.  To me it looks more like a case of what MSU did wrong tonight then what UCLA did right.

MSU didn't look like a cohesive team during the time I watched with players going after each other and Izzo on camera. They didn't seem to want to be there. I was so interested, I went to bed when UCLA took their first lead in the second half. And I have followed the Bruins so closely that I thought Alford was still their coach.

X-Post from the 2021-2022 Expectations thread:

 

 

 

Which is interesting because since our last game in the BTT we've dropped from #92 to #109 in the most recent KenPom rankings.

 

Of course, we need to keep in mind that we won't be the only school adding and subtracting through the portal so it's hard to say if we actually move up to the top 40-ish...but still it's encouraging to think about it.

Also, the run that the Pac 12 is on is pretty spectacular, they have now moved in to the #2 slot in the KP conference rankings (no chance of surpassing the Big Ten however):

Also of note.  Oregon State started off the Pac 12 tournament with a KenPom ranking of #103, roughly the same as our ranking.  Now they're up to #43 going in to tonight's game against Houston:

      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:

      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!
