I thought that myself when I read that article that talked about a Data Scientist(tm)
Looking at ESPN this morning, I clicked on the link to "BPI" - a supposed Basketball Power Index. Updated today it shows Michigan at #22, behind Wisconsin, Iowa, OSU, and MSU, good for only the #5 rated Big 10 team and a projected 6 seed!!!
I would assume this is not looked at for NCAA seeding, right? How can this possibly be calculated to come out with this rediculous result?
<edit> Even better, it projects Michigan as an Auto-Bid for the Big Dance - meaning it expects M to win the Big 10 tournament and still only get a 6 seed? It is insulting that they even would post these rankings in a format that would suggest it as data.
Obvious opinions of Pat Forde aside. It's a pretty great article on Calipari and his deficiencies as a basketball coach. While I read it, I can't help but think of the man we have running our program. We may not always compete for National Championships but we will always have a coach and a team we can be proud to root for. Kentucky wishes they could say the same.
Great feature on Derrick Walton. Also has some nice highlights from the MSU game. I reuploaded the features on Stauskas, Morgan, and Irvin. Enjoy
Big ten Champs!!! Hard fought game but i want to sweep the last 2 games especially the Hoosiers. Ive also reuploaded all the games from the season on a playlist. Enjoy GO BLUE!!
The New York Daily News reports that the Pistons are considering replacing Joe Dumars with Isiah Thomas. Sounds like Gores is well on his way to creating another disaster.
I may not agree with some of Joe Dumars decisions recently, although we don't really know they are his decisions, but the man did a lot for the franchise and having him hanging since the firing of Cheeks and now the leaking of this is embarrassing.
