Annual B-10 plus/Minus rating


#1

Lar,
I think you’ve performed this wonderful service for us in past years, but the +/- ratings based on the home games is always a great tracker, and is usually a truer indicator mid-season than just the win/loss record.

Is anyone on the web doing that this year we can link to? I hate to ask you to compine those numbers again, but I always found those standings valuable.

Thanks!

Thanks, Lar!
This does confirm my gut that MSU and Wisky have had the best start and are emerging as the teams to beat.

Of course, it also shows the hole we’re already in. :’(

How exactly do the standings work?

Teams move up and down if they get a road win/loss?

I think road win give you a +1, home loss give you -1. Losing on the road/winning at home has no impact on the rating.

That’s correct. I probably should have noted that for newcomers to the board.

How’s the GREAT Tubby Smith doing at Minnesota???

Finding the road to the top a little difficult in the Big 10, huh? And, I don’t expect to see the Gopher’s in the upper echelon in the near future, either.

I think Jonsey made a comment the other day about MSu coming back to pack with some tough games coming on the schedule. Of course, those must be home games because according to this, MSU’s threatening to run away with things. If they do “blow it” it’s going to have be taken from them in Breslin Center… Tall order my friends :wink:


#18

Agreed. The other problem with PSU’s schedule is that the MN/MI/NW games are all must-wins for those teams. They’ll be on the bubble (right now looking out) and will be motivated to win. A loss to PSU would likely kill their at-large chances.

It’d be nice to get IU/Iowa this month.
