    College Bball Thread

    I visited a couple of Kansas boards and they seem intent on blaming Kansas State somehow. Idiots.

    College Bball Thread

    Here is the sequence at the end of the Kansas/Kansas St game: Kansas up 81-59 and brings the ball across halfcourt with about 8 seconds left looking to just dribble the clock out. Kansas State player steals the ball and goes in for a layup....gets fouled very hard by a Kansas player (should have been flagrant IMO) who then proceeds to stand over him and talk ****. That's when hell broke loose. I couldn't tell from the film if the player who committed the hard foul to begin with was De Sousa. It was an incredibly stupid reaction to begin with......K State could have let the clock run out but Jesus Christ, he's under no obligation to. And it wasn't like he was taking swipes at the Kansas player trying to make unnecessary contact at the end....the Kansas player played loose with the ball, K State player stole it and was going to score a meaningless basket and Kansas for some reason thought it was somehow a big deal.

    Another view of De Sousa at the end. https://twitter.com/BleacherReport/status/1219803396686802944?s=20

    With two minutes left and down 13, Purdue has attempted only 6 three pointers all game. That's not their normal offense.

    Northwestern totally Northwesterning a game against Maryland. They have went from up 14 at half to now down 3 in just 12 minutes of play.

    Two notes on the Illinois/Purdue game: Purdue has now played 70 minutes of basketball against Illinois and been outscored 120 to 80. Alan Griffin was ejected earlier for stepping on a Purdue player. No word whether the ejection was for stepping on the player or wiping the $hit off his shoes on the court afterwards.

    If Purdue comes back and wins, I'm blaming you. Down 12, but still over 10 minutes left.
  8. Saying we likely would have hung a banner when Sampson was here doesn't account for the fact that if he did, it also would likely be stripped later.

    Who would you choose?

    Guess I still don't understand your question....or misunderstand your logic. I don't see how Xavier, UNLV, Charlotte, Davidson and Mercer being good makes college basketball any better. I couldn't tell you how well any of those were last year or how well they are doing this year other than Xavier is usually pretty good.

    No other conference in the country plays 20 conference games except the Big Ten. The most anyone else plays is 18. This ends up bumping teams SOS, but it's overkill. And throw in the ACC/Big Ten challenge to boot and there are 21 games dictated by the conference + the Big Ten tournament that follows. It's why non-conference strength of schedule should be taken with a grain of salt in the Big Ten, IMO. The other power conferences have will play two more non-con games and two less conference than the Big Ten. It's like the overall SOS doesn't include non-conference SOS. Let's say team A has a non-con SOS of 200 and an overall SOS of 20 and goes 20-10. Team B has a non-con of 10 and an overall SOS of 25 and has the same 20-10 record. Which team is more deserving? It's incredibly idiotic logic to say team B because 'they chose to play a tougher non-conference schedule'. When non-conference SOS is included in overall SOS, the non-conference SOS is completely meaningless.

    Don't know if any of you follow the Bracket Project's Bracket Matrix, but they are usually pretty accurate. They accumulate all of the pundits brackets and give an accumulated prediction. http://bracketmatrix.com/ Here is what the have for the Big Ten through 1/19 using 79 brackets posted by different sites: Michigan State: 3rd seed, 9th overall, in all 79 brackets Maryland: 4th seed, 15th overall, in all 79 brackets Ohio State: 5th seed, 20th overall, in all 79 brackets Michigan: 6th seed, 21st overall, in 78 brackets Iowa: 6th seed, 23rd overall, in all 79 brackets Wisconsin: 7th seed, 26th overall, in 77 brackets Penn State: 8th seed, 30th overall, in 76 brackets Rutgers: 8th seed, 31st overall, in 75 brackets Illinois: 9th seed, 33rd overall, in 75 brackets Indiana: 9th seed, 34th overall, in 78 brackets Purdue: 10th seed, 40th overall, in 70 brackets Minnesota: 11th seed (play in game), in 44 brackets

    Minnesota is my pick for the team most likely to fall off the pace. Brutal non-con, but they didn't beat anyone of note.....they beat Clemson and Oklahoma State at Minnesota, but both of those teams are 9-8 and likely to finish with losing records. Minnesota is currently sitting at 10-8 and I could see them losing their next three: at Ohio State, home to Michigan State, and at Illinois. Do that and they are 10-11 and in scramble mode.

    No. I can't find those. I can find IU's Big Ten only stats, but not their rankings. Positives in conference: Taking 25.7 free throws per game +8.2 rebounds per game +7.1 free throws per game. Neutral: Opponents shooting 43% and 32% from three. Negatives in conference: Turning it over 14.1 times per game Shooting 41% overall and 26% from three 67% free throws

    I am unable to find the Big Ten only numbers. All of the websites I'm finding are for the whole season. FWIW, though, we have shot 180 free throws in 7 conference games....or 25.7 per game. My guess is that leads the conference. Our opponents have shot 130, or 18.6 per game.

    With the possible exception of Northwestern, we could see that there isn't a single team this year that has a losing record at home in conference this year. I would venture to say that Nebraska will win 3 of its last 6 at home.
