    Fine by me. I believe following your logic would actually improve WSU's ranking. Talk about your strawman logic-backfire.

      Wow. That kenpom really has the analysis thing down pretty good.

      Our chances are really good if we score 67-64? Who'd thought of that?

      But, what if Temple scores 67? What would we have to score then? Or could we? And is J. Burton only effective against inferior competition?

        Yes, but what is their possession efficiency vs. the Shox. If our possession efficiency is better, we have to be ranked higher.
        Right now, we are more efficient by about 3.5 points/100 possessions. So yes, we would have to be ranked higher even if we lost this game.

          By his logic, the Shox should be no worse than 8th in the polls correct?

            I'd probably use win% with his logic, so 7th. But 8th if following it directly.

              Wins and losses matter, do they not? That's what I'm being told. They are the ultimate metric.

                No, possession efficiency is all that matters.

                  LOL

                  Alright Kel Varnsen MikeKennedyRulZ I'm calling for a cease-fire in this thread so we don't torpedo it any more. We can carry on in the rankings thread.

                    I think they both matter.

                    I am also exhausted. Haha.

                      One quick note before we present the rankings: With Wichita State’s move to the American Athletic Conference, the Shockers have moved out of the mid-major club. We wish the Shockers well against Cincinnati, UConn, SMU, and more.

                        I just want to know when they are going updated our stupid outdated arena.

                        I mean the scoreboard is clearly still showing points instead of efficiency metrics. So embarrassing.

                              So you're saying these refs will be even worse?

                                If they're worse, you might find ole WstateU heading to the 'funny farm'...
