Bad Cats bball squads.
« on: February 03, 2024, 11:03:38 PM »
Following today's loss at Oklahoma State (kenpom 123) our 2023-24 Cats bball squad has dropped to No. 76 in the latest basketball ratings by statistical guru Kenneth Pomeroy. If the season ended today that would put this year's team in between two Jim Wooldridge squads as the 7th worst ksu basketball team in the kenpom era.

How far will we fall ... or rise? Will we be helped by our conferences overall strength?

K-State cagers teams rated worst to first according to kenpom.com:

147 (2020-21) oscar
120 (2001-02) Wooly
90 (2019-20) oscar
83 (2004-05) Wooly
81 (2014-15) oscar
77 (2005-06) Wooly
71 (2004-05) Wooly
61 (2021-22) oscar
60 (2002-03) Wooly
57 (2006-07) Huggins
55 (2015-16) oscar
51 (2008-09) Frank
45 (2013-14) oscar
42 (2017-18) oscar
32 (2010-11) Frank
30 (2016-17) oscar
27 (2012-13) oscar
26 (2007-08) Frank
23 (2011-12) Frank
21 (2022-23) Tang
20 (2018-19) oscar
6 (2009-10) Frank

Obv. kp.c is not the only good measure for what makes a cat hoops team good or bad, but it does go back pretty far, so at least there is that!

If there was a gif of nicname thwarting the attempted-flag-taker and then gesturing him to suck it, followed by motioning for all of Hilton Shelter to boo him louder, it'd be better than that auburn gif.

Which squad has had the widest discrepancy between good games and bad games (too lazy to look up the statistical term for that)? There have been some really fun performances (Villanova, Providence, Baylor) and some eye-wateringly terrible outings (OU, OSU, Nub, Northwestern Alabama).

I think this team could lose out and still be at worst 3rd on the list.

This team is definitely one of the worse at doing it most to themselves (turnovers)

We lost 4 in a row now.
We just lost to the worst team in the conference.
KU just beat Huston’s ass by 12.

You know what that means.

We are going to beat KU tomorrow.

How were turnovers weighted on the play hard chart?

Kind of hard to believe that 1 in every 4 of our possessions results in a turnover

Now that I think of it we may not win the play hard chart either. Team never slaps the floor and doesnt  get very many oboards.

I mean it's not hard to believe because I have eyeballs that work and I know what turnovers are, I guess the hard to believe part is that it keeps happening at this sustained clip

We will have an inexplicable run in the second half to be up by double digits, ku pulls it back and takes it to OT. We don't lose in OT.

i'd consider it a victory if the team could fight their way back into the top 50.

Only got the second half run backwards. Moving in the right direction, Cats!

Staring top 5 right in the ball sack. We could be top three WOAT (since 2002 at least).
