You’re being kind only calling it a “waste”.


You know I love stats ;)

But these probabilities and Ken Poms are the biggest crock of you know what in the world to me.


Ken Pom is quite good. Especially as the season goes on. He had us ranked correctly the entire season last year.

Interesting note: We finished 88th on Ken Pom last year. Right now we are 84 after the Mercer win.


Rankings are rankings.
Probability to win games for the entire season is ridiculous. Too many factors.

Yup. Injuries, “exit velocity” for transfers, etc :)

KenPom Rankings (based on their projections and first games of the season):
#8 Villanova
#15 Marquette
#18 Xavier
#19 Seton Hall
#21 Providence
#25 Butler
#34 Creighton
#59 Georgetown
#71 UConn
#76 DePaul
#84 St. John's

Wow! While I think 6 top 25 teams is a bit much (we have 3 Top 25 AP teams), just imagine if these rankings are anywhere close to being accurate. Their Big East rankings last year weren't very favorable towards the conference (best team was #30 Villanova and only TWO top 50 teams), so this says a lot about our returning talent and incoming recruits.

DePaul plays their third game tomorrow before most teams play their second. The reason? Leitao was suspended 3 games, and so they added the D2 game (vs Chicago yesterday) so Leitao wouldn't miss their fourth game @ Iowa on Monday.

Yeah... I can't decide if it's smart or dumb (pissing off the NCAA further). It's clever, at least.

There's no way his coaching acumen is so great that they couldn't bear to not have him for Iowa.
