    Predictions for tomorrow?

    Honestly and people who know me, know I never blame refs and good teams can overcome bad calls for the most part but tonight's game was some of the worst officiating I've seen in a long time. Kentucky won and that's all that matters They got the W. Still, that game was officiated on a slant. Anyone looking at this without bias can see that.

    Predictions for tomorrow?

    This probably won't make you feel any better. All four ESPN analysts pick the Vols tonight. 3 out of 4 also think Duke beats Tennessee if they meet in the Dance. Can Kentucky end Tennessee streak
  7. Just keep reeling them in Vols Tennessee's first junior day since National Signing Day helped the Vols land a commitment Saturday from a highly ranked Class of 2020 prospect. Four-star junior defensive tackle Dominic Bailey of Wicomico High School in Salisbury, Md., announced Saturday afternoon on his Twitter account that he has committed to Tennessee, choosing the Vols during a weekend trip to Knoxville. The 6-foot-3, 275-pound Bailey chose Tennessee over scholarship offers from almost 20 other schools, including Florida, Georgia, Maryland, Nebraska, Notre Dame, Penn State, Virginia, Virginia Tech and West Virginia, giving the Vols their fifth commitment for the 2020 class

    Predictions for tomorrow?

    That's a good call. I agree. If you're gonna lose, this is the time. Really just need to win come the NCAA tourney

    Predictions for tomorrow?

    Watching with my breath held. Should be a good game though. Streaks are hard to maintain. If we have to have a loss, sooner is better than later. We need solid footing going into the tourneys. I'm sill picking the Vols by 3

    LSU scares me more in some ways

    Predictions for tomorrow?

    LSU did the Vols a big solid by knocking off the Cats Tuesday night. All they have to do is split with Kentucky and beat LSU at Baton Rouge and the regular season title is in the bag. Easy, right? Right???

    Predictions for tomorrow?

    I am thinking 73-70 Vols.... I even have my Vols Victory meme made up for all my Kat friends up here in Bowling Green. Hope I get to use it
  19. College basketball predictions: Can Kentucky end Tennessee streak? WWW.ESPN.COM ESPN.com's college hoops experts make their picks for Tennessee-Kentucky and other top games. Thoughts? I think Kentucky and Tennessee split their games. That's not saying Tennessee isn't on a great trip this season so far. Just winning two against Kentucky is never easy. A set back might actually be a teaching tool for Barnes. Still Saturday should be interesting. Should be fun. Thinking close game like 70-68 type
  20. I guess my point regardless of the system is fans who apparently just discovered Tennessee has a basketball team bitching about Duke and getting no respect blah blah blah. I'm loving this Tennessee team this year. But anyone saying Duke stinks and doesn't play anyone and all that nonsense is just showing their ignorance. I'm sick of the whining about Tennessee not getting respect when obviously they ARE. Still Duke's been winning tourneys and national honors for 30 plus years consistently. I'd say that's earned them a little respect. Regardless none of this matters come tourney time. Just tired of the whining fans in social media. And no basis for it.

    Looking at RPI rankings. Some real stats

    There will never be a perfect system to rank teams but it seems to me at least the NET use a combination of factors to get a more complete picture of how teams compare to each other. SOS is just one part of that. Still, the good news is that these rankings only have meaning as far as the regular season goes. They may influence the tournament seeding to some extent, but once the tourney starts upsets will inevitably make them irrelevant.
  22. Not a fan of the new NET system. Regardless, still Duke has played a tougher schedule even by that system ranking. Still. philosophically, NET suffers from a "throw a bunch of metrics at the wall and see what sticks" problem, which is often characteristic of unthoughtful algorithm design, instead of having considered more deeply what it's actually trying to predict or achieve. They might have adopted it but it's just worse in results than the old systems. It performed worse than RPI in last year's tournament.

    Looking at RPI rankings. Some real stats

    The new NET rankings the NCAA uses replaces the RPI of old. The Vols strength of schedule should move upwards starting this weekend. But of course once the tournament starts forget the rankings, it's put up or shut up time for everybody. NET rankings explained
  24. Oh yeah and I spoke way too soon. Duke came back and won. Louisville imploded. Is Zion better than Grant Williams? Cannot say. What I can say is Grant and Zion are the two best players in the country. Both teams are very impressive
  25. With that being said, wow Louisville you kicked Duke's teeth in tonight. It doesn't take away from my original post though. They still play a MUCH tougher strength of schedule, Watching Louisville just reinforces that. College basketball is so fun because it's like college football but potential upsets are even more frequent. I know a lot of people will look at this Duke game and talk about why Tennessee is so much better than Duke. I'd say let it go. Focus on south Carolina and Kentucky. Who cares where a team is ranked right now? Just win the games in front of you.
  26. Ok, yes we all want to see Tennessee on number 1 of everything. The truth though is the RPI rankings show some true analysis. Trust me, we all want the Vols winning it all but keep it all in perspective. Strength of schedule for Tennessee: 70 Strength of schedule for Duke: 2 Yes, Tennessee if they beat Kentucky will jump but let's keep this in perspective. Duke has over 20 years of living in the top 10 in the country. Tennessee has maybe 5 years of rankings in the past 15 years. Let's be realistic fans. Yes, we love what Rick Barnes is doing but let's be realistic. Duke is higher in the RPI rankings. They play in the ACC. All the games are tough. Barnes and Vols are impressive. Still, one elite year doesn't equal automatic college basketball elite status. Just being honest
