    I also view this as more evidence that we were worse than the sum of our parts last season.

    That obviously reflects poorly on Manning.

    It's really hard to win only 11 or 12 games when you play so many weak teams.

    We only get credit for Hoard (and Torry Johnson) as net new players.

    I would have expected a preseason KP worse than 12 wins or #91.

    That has nothing to do with how I feel about the upcoming season or Manning as coach.

    Purely a comment on the output of a statistical model. Nothing more.
    I donít know much about KP ranking methodologies, but generally, as predictive models go, the analysis would have very little data to input into the predictive model so the output about our team is a bit of a crap shoot. The prediction is probably largely based on the quality of our opponents and the strength of the ACC and not so much on what we bring to the table. That is, KP is predicting that we will probably beat some or most of our weak pre conference schedule and then even if we lose all of our ACC games by 10-15 points, our opponents will generally be ranked quite high so our ranking wonít tumble.

    As an aside, I canít believe we are only returning three players but not a single early departure is in the NBA.
