    Sometimes algorithms are dumb.

    Gophers won. Penn State didn’t.

    Penn State (41) is still ahead of the Gophers in KenPom (46). I am certainly not a huge fan of this Gophers squad, but other teams rated above the Gophers that I'd certainly like their chances against: Indiana, Nebraska, Utah State, Oklahoma, Iowa (34!), North Carolina State (32!!), Saint Mary's, Clemson, Texas (29 at 16-16!). Those are just the teams I'd favor (even if just slightly) the Gophers over ranked above them and I am only looking at teams I've seen play.

    I'd take everyone but Northwestern in the B1G over NC State from what I've seen of that group..and they beat Clemson yesterday.

    Gophers would be hard pressed to be favorites on a neutral court over any of those teams other than maybe St. Marys.

    It's been a weird year on all kinds of levels, and so many teams including ours have been so inconsistent, especially in conference play. Taking a step back, though, that might be what I'd have expected from a highly rated and uniformly talented conference, which we are. These teams have been punching each other all season, and everyone's been capable of beating anyone. If I were the selection committee, I'd be tempted to trust the numbers and take as many as 11 teams from the B1G. Hadn't there been talk of taking 10 at one time, before they all started beating each other up?

    Want inconsistent?

    How about that Maryland squad?

    Not sure how a nice stretch of 10 games makes penn state better and this unbelievable team lately. Every team in big ten has had a nice 10 game stretch this year. They haven't even beaten us this year in two tries. Why the love fest for a 14-18 team? They have some nice players, but so does everyone else.

    The gophers beat them both times they played this year and they have the better overall record. Kind of makes sense.

    Ncaa looks at overall record not a hot streak...lesson learned

    Absolutely makes sense. I suppose if the Gophers beat them again today for a third time some posters would call for raising them higher relative to the Gophers in Kenpom or some other ranking set.

    OP blames net rating for a 14-18 team missing the tournament.

    A "better team" takes care of business all season long.....Penn St. did not.

    Penn State has a losing record. Won 14 games this year. Minnesota won 20. Minnesota has a better big ten record as well and beat them twice in head to head games. MN clearly the better team.
