  2. It's been a while since I looked but it appears the Big Ten finally took over the top spot! Ranking of conferences by AdjEM of team that's expected to go .500 in conference play Conference Rating Conference Rating 1 Big Ten Conference +17.23 17 Sun Belt Conference -1.33 2 Big 12 Conference +17.02 18 Horizon League -4.25 3 Atlantic Coast Conference +15.64 19 Colonial Athletic Association -4.37 4 Southeastern Conference +14.13 20 Patriot League -4.63 5 Big East Conference +11.96 21 Big West Conference -5.00 6 Pac 12 Conference +7.34 22 Big South Conference -5.36 7 American Athletic Conference +6.62 23 Summit League -5.53 8 West Coast Conference +4.95 24 Atlantic Sun Conference -5.80 9 Mid American Conference +3.79 25 Ohio Valley Conference -6.48 10 Atlantic 10 Conference +1.52 26 Big Sky Conference -8.09 11 Mountain West Conference +0.97 27 America East Conference -8.42 12 Ivy League +0.65 28 Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference -8.72 13 Southern Conference -0.07 29 Northeast Conference -9.36 14 Missouri Valley Conference -0.30 30 Southland Conference -9.95 15 Conference USA -1.24 31 Southwestern Athletic Conference -15.63 16 Western Athletic Conference -1.28 32 Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference -16.52
  3. and now we're down to 13th
  4. That's a good one. The thread title is "best team since..." so if that's your answer it's pretty high praise for this MSU team. There have been a whole lot of really good teams to come through Lincoln in the last 12 years.
  5.

    Rutgers exploited the hell out of Northwestern's biggest weakness, which is that they do not have a PG. Yet they still weren't able to overcome and pull out the win.

    Geo Baker is a pretty good PG. He's no Cassius Winston or anything, but containing him will be key IMO.
  8. So, my take away from that is basically cumulative fatigue throughout a season is hard to quantify and little is known about the efficacy of management techniques. However it is believed if managed properly, through proper training regimen, fatigue may be mitigated and made kind of a non-factor. Am I way off on that? Also, like I said before, if it's an issue for us then it is certainly going to be an issue for everyone else who plays about a 7 or 8 man rotation. Which is pretty much everyone by this point in the season. Also, keep in mind that we have one of the oldest teams in the nation. Presumably they will be better suited to handle the rigors of a full college season just due to experience.
  9. I think the whole short bench/fatigue thing is blown way out of proportion. These are 18-22 year old athletes at their physical peak, some of you are making them sound like overweight middle aged men. You might be thinking "but they were gassed by the end of the game last night". Well, no shit Sherlock, of course they were. They were giving 110% effort for 40 minutes last night. But in case you hadn't noticed Michigan State were just as gassed at the end of the game. That was a heavyweight title fight out there. Guys are going to get fatigued. But they'll get some rest and be ready to go in a couple days. If fatigue is a cumulative thing, I've got a secret for you. It's cumulative for everyone else in the country too. Getting 3 or 4 minutes a night out of the 8th and 9th guy on your bench isn't going to somehow magically make fatigue go away. And not getting those handful of minutes isn't all of a sudden going to kill anyone, let alone world-class athletes.

    Leading the league in having dudes named Shaq!
  11. This is an important takeaway for me. Our wins against them previously seemed more fluky than anything. Last night even though we couldn't get over the hump, it felt like two pretty evenly matched opponents. This is the type of game we'll need to figure out how to win to make it to the second weekend of the NCAA Tournament.

    Also got a big win against Miami in the B1G/ACC challenge, so they are capable of pulling the upset: 2019 Schedule Game Plan | Opponent Tracker Date Rk Opponent Result Location Record Conf Fri Nov 9 149 243 Fairleigh Dickinson W, 90-55 74 Home 1-0 Sun Nov 11 128 260 Drexel W, 95-66 76 Home 2-0 Fri Nov 16 120 48 St. John's L, 84-65 72 Home 2-1 Mon Nov 19 136 152 Eastern Michigan W, 63-36 67 Home 3-1 Fri Nov 23 108 217 Boston University W, 54-44 69 Home 4-1 Wed Nov 28 116 72 Miami FL W, 57-54 68 Away 5-1 Fri Nov 30 103 3 Michigan St. L, 78-67 64 Home 5-2 0-1 Mon Dec 3 106 17 Wisconsin L, 69-64 63 Away 5-3 0-2 Sat Dec 8 99 219 Fordham L, 78-70 64 Away 5-4 Sat Dec 15 107 52 Seton Hall L, 72-66 70 Away 5-5 Sat Dec 22 108 240 Columbia W, 68-65 75 OT Home 6-5 Sat Dec 29 113 331 Maine W, 70-55 59 Home 7-5 Sat Jan 5 109 20 Maryland L, 77-63 72 Home 7-6 0-3 Wed Jan 9 115 27 Ohio St. W, 64-61 62 Home 8-6 1-3 Sat Jan 12 106 63 Minnesota L, 88-70 71 Away 8-7 1-4 Tue Jan 15 110 15 Purdue L, 89-54 67 Away 8-8 1-5

    Can't they all lose?
  14. Yes I presumed that would be the argument. But that adds a layer of complexity I guess.
