    This is probably the dumbest thread ever posted on this site.

    The NET system is obviously flawed and gives way too much credit for close losses. In this case, 18 of them.

    Don't go away mad, just go away.

    I’m pretty sure OP is being sarcastic. He’s not seriously arguing that Penn State is better than Minnesota, he’s saying that a ranking system that puts a 14-28 team above us is very flawed. He’s criticizing the NET, not the Gophers.

    If anything, the two games added validation to the math models. The models suggest the two teams are close, and the two games support that

    Even better, the math models say those are two quality wins. Frankly, I’d rather have it this way than two close wins over a team the math models suggest is inferior

    So, after the Gophers beat Penn State and pick up another Quad 1 win...

    Nittany Lions CLIMB 2 spots in the NET

    Gophers DROP 1 spot...

    That almost doesn't make sense, but you are right.

    So we beat them and went up a spot to 57 and they dropped down two spots to 47? WTF. How is that even possible?

    Can you win a game against an opponent but be "less efficient" than them?

    It's really odd that this can happen.
    In RPI, you can play a weak team, win and your RPI will go down, but it's usually SOS related.
    PSU being a top 50 team should not negatively affect our rating from an SOS standpoint.

    NET isn't the only thing that has PSU ranked higher. Sagarin did too until we beat them yesterday. Let's face it, Penn State is pretty good, especially lately, which makes yesterday's win pretty impressive.
