Re: MWC

They do get the kid from Oregon at the semester break..He will help a lot.. That always bugs me. They aren't available for OOC, then improve come conference time. Why? I thought the goal for 99 percent of the teams out there is to improve by conference time. I guess you are worried that the MW bein...

Re: MWC

I think Rice is an excellent coach. Boise has been a very consistent winner since joining the MW. It is hard to win big every year in most conferences.

It is also impossible to tell much about any of the teams this early in the ooc.

Re: BPI from ESPN

BPI is an interesting measuring stick but it is not at all predictive of future results. The numbers will change wildly. You might be at 100 percent certainty to win the MW by November 6th.

Re: Enjoy the ride

The Athletic has Smith as one of the 25 up and coming coaches. Craig Smith, Utah State head coach. It took a long time — nearly 20 years — before Smith snagged his first head coach job. But here’s the thing: He’s still just 46. He built winners at heralded Mayville State and South Dakota before land...

Re: 68th in kenpom rankings

Regression to the mean or just regression to being bad?..It is two different things.. If it is regression to the mean then you would probably be ranked higher since the mean under Smith is 28 wins, conference title, tourney title and a top 25 ranking including a berth in the NCAA's. If he suspects t...

Re: 68th in kenpom rankings

I think kenpom does a great job. But all analytics have to have a baseline. Before games have been played he has decided what would be a good win or a bad loss. Since this is pretty arbitrary until actual data enters the algorithm he has to make guesses to start the ball rolling. Educated guesses bu...

Re: Small schedule advantage???

I think so many problems can be solved by the MW becoming a football only conference. That gives the 12 football schools a home but the 11 olympic sports schools could then take those sports to conferences that make more sense regionally, budget wise and travel wise.

I liked how it was in the Big West days. 12 basketball schools, 2 divisions. You play the 5 in your own division twice and the 6 in the other division once. 16 game conference schedule. Top 4 finishers in each division got to the conference tourney. The best conference lash up is 9 members. But this...

I thought you team last season was your best I had ever seen and this current team appears to be deeper and more talented.

Getting to the Sweet 16 or beyond really comes down to how hot your team is at the moment. The 2 times Nevada has made it that far were as a 10 seed and a 7 seed.
