    This is exactly the time of year you have to watch for that team eye gouging, twisting ankles, biting, throwing elbows, etc. Anything to try to injure an opponent. This is how the scum bag Fran coaches them.

    NET ratings are dumb. We moved down 1 spot yesterday to 57. Despite losing to us, PSU moved up 2 spots to 47. Oregon, the team that passed us, beat #103 Utah.

    Rating changes aren’t only based on your latest game. Other teams on everyone’s schedules are also playing games.

    NET rankings are the definitive source of truth on college basketball and the B1G basketball hierarchy this year is clearly as follows:

    8. Michigan State
    9. Michigan
    12. Purdue
    16. Wisconsin
    29. Maryland
    41. Iowa
    47. Penn State
    49. Nebraska
    53. Indiana
    55. Ohio State
    57. Minnesota
    91. Northwestern
    101. Rutgers
    109. Illinois

    Don’t hate on scientific methods just because they identify you as the 11th best team in the B1G.

    I could hear an arguement for kenpom though since that scientist has been at it for years and has honed his formula.

    In which case:

    4. Michigan State
    6. Michigan
    10. Purdue
    12. Wisconsin
    24. Maryland
    34. Iowa
    40. Nebraska
    41. Penn State
    42. Indiana
    45. Ohio State
    46. Minnesota
    75. Northwestern
    77. Rutgers
    82. Illinois

    I prefer those because it has all the B1G teams higher, but the only change in the standings is Nebraska 7th and Penn State 8th.

    The takeaways from both methods are clear:
    Penn State and Nebraska are the 7th and 8th best teams and should be dancing, and Minnesota is the 11th best B1G team.

    Both of your rankings do not seem to capture the concept that Illinois is a top 25 team.

    I do appreciate that PSU moved up to keep our win Q1. They were sitting at 49 so I expected it to move in to Q2.

    I believe Purdue will be a Q1 win even when you beat them today as well.

    Yeah, I think Wisconsin covers the 8 (although I thought Maryland covered the 6.5 yesterday too).

    We have to run out of gas at some point playing our 3rd game in 3 days with only 7 players and Wisconsin hasn’t played yet.

    Palmer and Watson have both played all 40 minutes in both of our games the last two days and Roby has played 39 and 37 only subbing out due to foul trouble.
