    True, but that year all the power conference teams had at least 5 regular-season losses. Gonzaga only had 2.

    Interesting. Just to be clear, what I posted for 2013 isn't what I used for my top 25 I posted Monday, but what I have come up with to closely replicate the NET. For 2013, my NET-duplication formula resulted in Kansas ranked #6, behind Louisville, Indiana, Florida, Gonzaga, and Duke. Florida, with a 3 seed, certainly ended up below their ranking, lol.

    I found it, and I was actually mistaken. I had Louisville the slight #1 over us in my attempted duplication. I had IU #2. Here are what I had as Quad 1 games: W N Georgetown (#14) W North Carolina (#29) L N Butler (#39) W @ Iowa (#51) W Minnesota (#26) L Wisconsin (#16) W Michigan State (#12) W Michigan (#8) L @ Illinois (#43) W @ Ohio State (#7) W @ Michigan State (#12) L @ Minnesota (#26) L Ohio State (#7) W @ Michigan (#8) W N Illinois (#43) L N Wisconsin (#16) So it looks like I had us 10-6 in Quad 1 in the regular season. And I'll note North Carolina is on the borderline and I can't duplicate it exactly, but pretty close.

    I actually did that a while back, tried to replicate the NET formula (I can get very close to the current rankings but not exact) for that season. I think IU finished the regular season #1 with Louisville a close second. I can try to find it if you’re interested.

    NET is reflective and predictive but there is more weight on predictive.

    I realize that. There are no “set criteria.” They have criteria until they don’t. For instance, they look at “total body of work” until they want to take a team like Rutgers last year and ignore their bad losses. They have the NET, but it does not line up with the seeding because it weighs the predictive side too much. You don’t even need to dig into the sheet much, just weigh the result-based metric more than the NET does. With the RPI, there was no predictive side at all, so it wasn’t a set criteria either. They’re never going to put anything out there that gives away the whole field, because they want to leave themselves the flexibility to pick who they want. But Sagarin’s old ratings, before he changed his formula, was a really good predictor of the field and fairly good on seedlings, outside of, again, your teams like Rutgers last year getting in.

    You may notice the NET rankings have Indiana 32 and Maryland 52. Mine are also computer generated but I put more weight on the result-based side than the NET does. I actually put equal weight on result-based and predictive, so mine are nearly identical to Sagarin’s old version in which he used pure points and elo chess. The committee used to rely on that old version of Sagarin’s rankings very heavily.

    I’ve got Indiana in as a 12 seed (#47) and Maryland well out (#62).

    Dane Fife leaves IU staff

    99.9% of “disruptors” are a very small fraction as intelligent as they think they are.

    He certainly outcoached Akron’s Groce a couple nights ago.

    According to a teaser on Peegs, there has been some “encouraging chatter,” whatever that means.

    In all seriousness, thank you for putting this in writing and attempting to explain it. I still don’t get it and never will, why it makes some people feel so good to trash our athletic programs, players, coaches, and athletic directors on a public forum for everyone to see. To me it isn’t any less gross than the guy who sent the letter to TJD. You just don’t have to use a stamp and envelope here. But to each their own, I guess. And again, truly, thank you for explaining it.

    Sure, because Indiana football fills the seats like Kentucky basketball, right? Indiana football has the NIL money of Kentucky basketball, right? In short, Kentucky basketball has a lot of positives to counteract the negativity of some of their fanbase. We, on the other hand, have tailgating instead of coming into games, leaving at halftime, and grown men (I assume) sucking their thumbs and carrying their blankies to message boards and crying when things don't go their way. Not real enticing to potential recruits. But thanks for the laughable comparison to Kentucky basketball, lol.
