  1. I like the highlighting to start the season, but agree that it's not as helpful at this point. Noting the double plays is nice.
  2. JPJ now in the top 10 for Kenpom's POY.
  3. RPI was a lot harder on the B1G than predictive metrics were. You could see that pretty much bear itself out in the post-season (PSU/UM for example). It's so Nebrasketball that they switched from RPI to a hybrid metric the year after RPI really hurt us.
  4. Agree with a lot of the recommendations so far. Two others are Au Courant (Benson, like 64th and Maple) and Boiler Room (south of Old Market).
  5. 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.
  6. Seems like we should be able to run quite a bit of zone without getting beat from deep if we need to keep our bigs out of foul trouble.
  7. I don't mind it. The chances of Alvarado going up against Heimlich and getting a W were really slim. You are gonna find out a lot about these new arms against a really good lineup which will help you later in the season.
  8. Bart Torvik has a good explanation of what Kenpom's "secret sauce" is, too. I found reading it was pretty informative. Click link, Ctrl+F "Secret Sauce": http://adamcwisports.blogspot.com/p/every-possession-counts.html
  9. Some of you just really need to stop coming to the kenpom thread for your own sake.
  10. This is for kenpom, not RPI. Penn St is 76th in the RPI currently.
  11. I checked RPI Forecast for Michigan earlier today. According to their projections, if Michigan goes 3-0 or 2-1 to close the season, they will be top 30 RPI. If they go 2-1 it will be REALLY close. Worth mentioning that they will have an opportunity to improve their RPI in the B1G tournament before even playing us, so if they can get top 30 in the regular season, I like their chances of staying there even after we ravage them a second time. Anyway, that's just some inaccurate forecasting food for thought. Might be worth having a bubble watch for Top 30 RPI and decide who we need to
  12. For sure - I only brought it up because it reinforces to me the importance of what the basketball team is doing on campus, and there was some discussion on here about whether they were just giving the guy the attention he wants.
  13. I think the formula is quadrant-heavy rather than RPI-heavy. Of course RPI issues compound the quadrant issues.
  14. Turns out the shooter yesterday was part of a white nationalist group. Puts what's going down at Nebraska into perspective. AP Story
