    this is exactly why the NET is not great.

    One of my buddies once told me that it doesn't matter if she has a dick, it only matters if she LOOKS like she has a dick.

    We were in uptown at Liquor Lyles... If you've been there, you know what I mean.

    Remember, the formula is:
    25% is your winning percentage
    50% is your opponents' winning percentage
    25% is your opponents' opponents' winning percentage

    So, your opponents opponents winning percentage matters just as much as your own winning percentage.

    If that isn't fundamentally flawed I don't know what is. The coaches wanted to get rid of it with very good reason.
    But if your winning percentage was 0.750, that would pull up the SOS numbers enough to make it look somewhat legit.

    What a joke.

    And this is where the problem lies with it. Run up the score against junk teams and get highly rated? Lose to any good team you've played as long as you
    don't get blown out?

    Garbage. Just win baby. The most important metric to me is W's. Who've you've beat, who you've played. Not how well you do against garbage squads. If you won by 3 or 10-11, a W is a W.

    This thing will be thrown out after this season if it puts bad teams with poor records in over teams that have actually won games. Maybe it will even out, but showing Nebraska as such a solid right now if a farce. Nebraska is a borderline BAD team this season. They haven't beat anybody and are losing at the moment. Right now they should be 100% OUT and not close to getting in unless they win 7-8 more games.

    It seems as though we need 10 or 11 wins in the B1G to make it, but Nebraska and IU will be solid at 8-12.

    And doesn't that seem like garbage to you? It maddens me.

    I think we get to 10 easy and 11-12 is possible. They are playing pretty decent lately. Do that and they can be safe and let the rest of the chips fall where they may.

    Yes. I hope I'm wrong. There are no "easy" games left for us. But we will win at least 2 of the home games and hope we can scrape out 2 others.

    According to the NET, close losses to decent opponents are a good thing. We moved up 6 spots losing to Michigan. So basically Iím counting that as a win! Of course Iím hoping for a win vs Purdue but the NET tells me as long as they lose by less than 10 we should celebrate. So playing good opponents close and being efficient doing so are more important than winning games. Or at least thatís how it seems to me. See IU and Nebraska. Once again the NCAA hits a homerun!

    We will need 11 more wins.

    OR

    We could get 6 more wins each by 25 point margins and lose in the other 5 games each by one point.

    Or win one game by 150 points, and lose 10 games by one point and we'll still be fine.

    Think you've got a better handle on this than most. Not sure NCAA would be terribly thrilled with your findings, though.

    11 MORE wins, eh? Too bad we only have 10 games left.

    Anyone know how OT is factored in? For example, does Purdue get credited with a full 9 point victory at penn state tonight?

    Also look at this shot:
