    Good thing is football ends late December and baseball begins early February. Stan only has to suck it up for about a month and a half or so. Then again, those 45 days may feel like 3 years to him thanks to Deacon basketball.

    Penn State is going to finish significantly higher in the Big Ten this season than we will in the ACC (DFL)...

    The only impressive ACC team last night was FSU, though Syracuse surprised me a bit. UVA did well enough to beat a fairly impressive Md team, but that was not their best defensive effort. And they really need someone not named Jerome, Guy or Hunter to step up on somewhat of a consistent basis. But I'm beginning to believe they're over-ranked at #4 and that they're going to be much more vulnerable in the post on defense than they've been in the last several years. And while I'm always rooting for the ACC, it's not that disappointing to tie the thing by losing the last game when Michigan is absolutely spanking UNC.

    They also have a win at Notre Dame. Impressive.

    So Furman is #122 in KenPom after a double OT win over Western Carolina, but ranked in the AP top 25.

    They are 8-0 and won at Villanova and at cindarella Loyola Chicago. Shows the difference between human perception and computer models. A lot of voters will look at their record and their win at Villanova (and to a lesser extent at Loyola) and say a #25 ranking is deserved. The models consider the 2-point 2OT win at home againts WCU, the 2-point OT win at home against Gardner-Webb, and the fact that Loyola is nowhere near as good as they were last year.

    Furman's remaining OOC schedule is trash except for a game at #50 LSU. Two other SoCon teams with losses are rated ahead of Furman: #79 Wofford (20 point win at S. Carolina) and #69 UNCG (coached by the next Bobby Knight).

    Here are the remaining CBB undefeateds (with KP rank):

    #2 KS
    #3 UVA
    #4 Zags
    #5 Michigan
    #6 Nevada
    #11 Texas Tech
    #37 Buffalo (wonder if Ikenna is rethinking the transfer decision)
    #40 Houston
    #42 Arizona State (has an OT win over WF victim Cal State Fullerton)
    #49 St. John's
    #122 Furman

    According to KP, the only two teams with a better than 1% chance to finish the regular season undefeated are:

    - Nevada 9.3%; their toughest remaining OOC game is #42 AZ State; the next best team in the MWC is #56 Utah State
    - Gonzaga 5.3%; they have 2 tough OOC games coming up: #12 Tennessee (nuetral) and #7 @UNC; the next best team in the WCC is #60 USF

    So, you're saying there's a chance?!

    Something is amiss with Miami. They are about to lose their 3rd straight as a big favorite. Penn is blowing out the Canes.

    Yale beat them last weekend. Consecutive losses to the Ivies is a bad look.

    Came here to post this and was hoping to get to post about Clemson losing to St. Peterís but they pulled it out. Misery loves company.

    Always weird to see a post from the REAL Sokolove. It's like a ghost or some spectre from the past.

    The Tide led 52-31 at the half. Woof.
