The Sure Thing/The Contenders/The Still Alives

Filed under: College Basketball — Tags: , , , , , , , , , — piratings @ 8:25 am

Who’s in the Big Dance? Who’s still in contention?

Today, we break down the projected NCAA Tournament field by conference.  The format will be teams that are locks to make the tournament; teams that would be safely in if the season ended today but a losing streak could jeopardize their safety; teams that would be on the good side of the bubble if the season ended today; teams that would be on the bad side of that bubble; and teams that are not in the conversation now but with a big winning streak could play their way into an at-large bid.

We won’t include the automatic bids, because the conference tournaments will do that for us.  Of course, this season, there could be some cancellations of these tournaments.  We’ll have to wait and see.

First, let’s look at the one-bid leagues.  As of today, we foresee 20 conferences receiving just one bid, but an upset in the conference tournament in one or two could lead to an extra bid from that league.

AMERICA EAST

The perpetual top contenders share the conference lead.  UMBC and Vermont are tied at 9-3 in conference play.  The two rivals face off in back-to-back games in Maryland tonight and tomorrow.  If one of these two teams earn the bid, they are probably looking at a #15 seed.

ATLANTIC SUN

Bellarmine has a one-game lead in the league race at 10-2, but the Knights are not yet eligible as a transitioning team to D1.  Liberty is in second place at 8-2, but this Flames team is not as strong as the last two editions.  The rest of the league is mediocre for a low-major conference.  Current sixth place Florida Gulf Coast is starting to put it together and could sneak up to the #2 seed by conference tournament time.

BIG SKY

This year’s race is as wide open as the real estate in the Near West.  Eastern Washington leads Southern Utah by 1 ½ games, but that is a Covid-scheduling issue, as SUU at 6-2 has played three fewer conference games.  The teams split back-to-back games at EWU a month ago.  This conference will hope to avoid a 16-seed play-in game.

BIG SOUTH

Winthrop has lapped the field.  The 15-1 Eagles lead second place Radford by 3 ½ games and most recently swept the Highlanders.  Winthrop is 18-1 overall and has a chance to earn an at-large bid should they not earn the automatic one.

BIG WEST

This has in recent years been the UC-Irvine show, as the Anteaters have dominated this league.  This year, UCI looks up at rival UCSB, as the 8-2 Gauchos have reeled off 10 consecutive victories.  Cal State Bakersfield is in a statistical tie with UC-Irvine for second place.  The Roadrunners venture to Santa Barbara to face UCSB twice this weekend.

COLONIAL

James Madison has risen from fourth place to first at 8-1, while the top contenders have all lost in recent games.  Fifth place Delaware and sixth place William & Mary are the other two conference teams with hot hands, but when the CAA holds its conference tournament, any of the top six could win the event.

CONFERENCE USA

With wins over Memphis and Alabama, one might think that Western Kentucky could earn an at-large bid if they could take the regular season CUSA title.  It is possible, but the 8-2 Hilltoppers may find it tough to get a lot of support this year with so few quality out of conference games.

WKU faces a tough doubleheader this weekend with 8-2 North Texas in Denton.  If either team sweeps, they become the sizable favorite to cop the league crown.  If they split, then Old Dominion, UAB, and Marshall all remain in contention to win the race in the final lap.

HORIZON LEAGUE

Wright St. and Cleveland St. are tied at 15-3 in the league and own four game leads over the next contender, Northern Kentucky.  Wright State has won nine games in a row since losing to CSU.  One of the top three should take the tournament title and the automatic bid.

METRO ATLANTIC

Covid has done a number on this league this year.  Monmouth has played 14 conference games and is 10-4.  Siena has played 10 conference games and is 8-2 to lead by percentage points over the Hawks.  Rick Pitino’s Iona Gaels have played just seven conference games and they have lost two in a row to fall back to fifth place at 4-3.  Iona gets both of the two co-leaders in doubleheader games on their home floor in New Rochelle, including two with Monmouth this weekend, weather permitting.

MID-AMERICAN

Year in and year out, the MAC postseason tournament in Cleveland is one of the most exciting and unpredictable as any other.  We expect the same results this year.  Toledo has been leading the league race most of the season, and the Rockets are in first at 12-3, but 11-3 Akron and 10-4 Kent St. are coming on strong in February.  It doesn’t end there.  Ohio U and Buffalo, both at 7-4, and Bowling Green at 8-7 have played well enough in recent weeks to contend for the automatic bid.  If the MAC Tournament plays as scheduled, this is one that you will want to watch.

MID-EASTERN ATHLETIC

With three league teams opting out, scheduling has been an issue this year in the MEAC.  Usually, this league struggles to avoid the #16-seed play-in game, but more than once, the MEAC has produced an upset winner in the Round of 64.  North Carolina A&T leads the South Division with a perfect 4-0 conference record, but the Aggies have only played two conference games since January 3.  They had five games postponed.  

In the north, Norfolk St. 7-4, leads Morgan St. and Coppin St., both 6-4, by a half game.  NSU swept Morgan and split with Coppin, but their remaining regular season games have been cancelled.  If the MEAC Tournament is cancelled, N.C. A&T will almost assuredly be awarded the automatic bid and express trip to a 16-seed play-in game.

NORTHEAST

Merrimack sits in a first place tie with Wagner at 8-4, but the Warriors are still in the transition phase to D1 and not yet eligible for the Dance.  Wagner leads 6-4 Bryant by a game.  The Seahawks have won seven games in a row.  There are seven teams within two games of first in the NEC, so this should be an interesting conference tournament.

OHIO VALLEY

Belmont is 16-0 in the league and 22-1 overall, but the Bruins did not play any power conference teams like they usually do.  Still, because Belmont has been winning games by lopsided scores, they have a shot at an at-large bid should somebody shock them in the OVC Tournament.  Second place Morehead St., 13-3, lost at Belmont by 15, but they get the Bruins to close out the regular season in Morehead.

PATRIOT LEAGUE

The league was split into thirds this year to lessen travel.  Army and Navy are the only two teams to play out of conference games, so it will be close to impossible for the automatic winner to receive anything other than a 16-seed.  Navy is 8-1 in the league and 11-2 overall.  Their out of conference wins include a sweep of the DC teams, George Washington and Georgetown.  Should the Midshipmen run the table, they could move up to a 15-seed.

Colgate at 9-1 is the overall leader in the league, while Lafayette at 7-5 leads the three-team Central Division.  Bucknell has won four in a row to improve from 0-4 to 4-4, but all four games came at the expense of Lehigh.

SOUTHERN

The Socon has been worthy of multiple bids in past years, and there are four rather good teams this year, but this is not the year for two league teams to get bids.

UNC-Greensboro has been near the top for the last five years, but the Spartans have won the SoCon Tournament just once.  UNCG leads the league at 10-4 by a half-game over 10-5 Wofford.  Two years ago, Wofford destroyed Seton Hall in the opening round and scared Kentucky in the Round of 32 at the Big Dance.

Furman (8-4) and Chattanooga (9-5) have begun to play like legitimate contenders in the last two weeks.

SOUTHLAND

Five teams have taken over in February, and any of the five could win the conference tournament.  Even though Stephen F. Austin is in third place at the moment, their conference record is 9-1, and their one loss came at 10-1 Abilene Christian.  Sam Houston is also 10-1, and their lone loss came at SFA.  Nicholls is 9-2, which would lead most leagues, but in this one, it’s only good enough for fourth place.

SOUTHWESTERN ATHLETIC

The SWAC rates last in conference power, so the winner of this league will be in the 16-seed play-in round.  Prairie View and Jackson St. sport 6-0 league marks, with Texas Southern at 4-2.  The two co-leaders had both of their scheduled games against each other postponed, and they could both remain undefeated in conference play.

SUMMIT

It’s a good bet that the team representing the Summit League in the Big Dance will have the word “Dakota” in its name.  South Dakota St. (6-2), South Dakota (9-3), and North Dakota St. (9-3) are the top three in the league.  SDSU has a neutral site win over Utah St. and a narrow loss to West Virginia, so the Jackrabbits probably give this league its best chance to win a game in the Big Dance.

SUN BELT

This league has a lot of better than average but not great teams.  Texas St. leads the West Division at 9-3 with 7-5 Arkansas St. in second.  Both teams have four game winning streaks.  South Alabama leads the East Division at 8-5, and the Jags have reeled off six in a row.

WESTERN ATHLETIC

New Mexico St. has dominated this conference in recent years, but Covid has really done a number on the Aggies this year, and they have fallen to sixth place.  Perennial also-ran Grand Canyon has ascended to the top at 6-0 in the league and 12-3 overall.  The Antelopes own an eight-game winning streak with a 22.8 point scoring margin in that streak.

Safe: —–

Good Bubble: —–

Bad Bubble: Wichita St. 8-2/12-4

In Contention: Memphis 8-3/12-6, SMU 7-4/11-4

Wichita St. could move to the Good Bubble with a win over Houston tonight.

ATLANTIC 10

Lock: —–

Safe: —–

Good Bubble:  VCU 9-2/16-4

Bad Bubble: St. Bonaventure 8-3/10-3, Saint Louis 4-2/11-3

In Contention: Davidson 6-2/10-5, Richmond 4-3/11-5

Wins over St. Bonaventure and Richmond have moved VCU into the field for now.

ATLANTIC COAST

Lock: Virginia 11-2/15-4, Florida St. 8-2/12-3

Safe: Virginia Tech 8-3/14-4, Louisville 6-3/11-4

Good Bubble: North Carolina 7-5/13-7, Clemson 7-5/13-5

Bad Bubble: Syracuse 6-5/12-6

In Contention: Duke 7-6/9-8, Georgia Tech 6-6/10-8

Duke was given up for dead in January, but the Blue Devils are far from dead.  Look out UVA!  You’re headed to an ambush as Cameron Indoor this weekend.

BIG 12

Lock: Baylor 9-0/17-0

Safe: Kansas 10-5/16-7, Oklahoma 8-4/13-5, Texas 7-4/13-5, West Virginia 7-4/14-6, Texas Tech 6-5/14-6, Oklahoma St. 7-6/14-6

Good Bubble: —–

Bad Bubble: —–

In Contention: TCU 4-6/11-8

This league is pretty much set in stone barring some unusual circumstance.  The top seven teams should receive bids, and even 7th place Oklahoma St. should be an 8 or 9-seed and safely in the field.

BIG EAST

Lock: Villanova 8-2/13-3, Creighton 12-4/16-5

Safe: —–

Good Bubble: Xavier 4-4/11-4, Seton Hall 10-5/13-8

Bad Bubble: Connecticut 7-5/10-5

In Contention: St. John’s 8-7/14-8

Madison Square Garden should be exciting if the Big East gets to hold their tournament this year.  St. John’s really needs three additional good wins in addition to not losing to a bad team.

BIG TEN

Lock: Michigan 9-1/14-1, Illinois 11-3/13-5, Ohio St. 11-4/17-4, Iowa 9-5/15-6

Safe: Wisconsin 9-6/15-7, Purdue 9-6/14-8

Good Bubble: Rutgers 8-7/12-7, Indiana 7-7/12-9

In Contention: Maryland 7-9/13-10, Minnesota 6-9/13-9, Michigan St. 4-9/10-9

Any Big Ten team that plays .500 ball in conference play will receive a bid this year, and we believe there is one more bid for the team that goes 9-11 (or 9-10 or 8-9 depending on missed games).  A couple of Big Ten coaches are on hot seats and on the Bubble.  Penn State will definitely have a new coach next year, but Indiana, Maryland, and Minnesota could also be forced to make moves if they don’t get into the field.

MISSOURI VALLEY

Lock: —–

Safe: Loyola (Chi.) 14-2/19-4

Good Bubble: Drake 12-2/21-2

Bad Bubble: —–

In Contention: —–

After Wichita St. fled the Valley for the AAC, it was thought that the days of this league receiving two bids to the tournament were over.  Guess again.  Loyola of Chicago and Drake would both have to collapse to miss out on the Dance this year.

MOUNTAIN WEST

Lock: —–

Safe: San Diego St. 9-3/15-4

Good Bubble: Boise St. 13-3/17-4, Colorado St. 11-3/14-4, Utah St. 11-3/14-6

In Contention: Nevada  9-5/14-7

A win over UCLA makes SDSU safer than the other four contenders.  Boise St. finishes with Utah St. and two games against San Diego St.  A 3-0 finish would propel the Broncos into the Safe category.

PAC-12

Lock: USC 12-2/18-3

Safe: UCLA 10-3/14-5, Oregon 7-3/12-4

Good Bubble: —–

Bad Bubble: Colorado 10-5/16-6, Stanford 9-6/13-8

In Contention: Utah 6-7/9-8, Oregon St. 6-8/10-10

The former Conference of Champions has not earned one since Arizona cut the nets in 1997!  Only UCLA twice and Oregon once have made the Final Four since then (Utah made it before they joined the league).

SOUTHEASTERN

Lock: Alabama 12-1/17-5, Arkansas 9-4/17-5

Safe: Tennessee 8-5/15-5, LSU 8-4/13-6, Florida 6-5/10-6

Good Bubble: Missouri 6-6/13-6

Bad Bubble: Ole Miss 7-6/12-8

In Contention: Georgia 6-8/13-8

You don’t see Kentucky on this list.  They are out of contention for an at-large bid, but that doesn’t mean the Wildcats cannot win the conference tournament.  The two hot teams in this league are Arkansas and Ole Miss.  The Razorbacks probably have the best chance to make it past the Sweet 16 from this league.  Ole Miss needs a few more big wins to get into the field.

WEST COAST

Lock: Gonzaga 11-0/20-0

Safe: —–

Good Bubble: BYU 6-3/15-5

Bad Bubble: —–

In Contention: Saint Mary’s 2-4/11-6

We placed SMC in the “In Contention” section, because in theory, they could finish 6-4/15-6 in the regular season, which would include an upset of Gonzaga.  Short of that, the Gaels will be staying home this year.

Coming tomorrow–Updated ratings, updated bracketology, and our annual mid-major coaches ready for the big time list in three separate posts.

Coming soon–The PiRate Ratings have created a tabletop baseball strategy game more advanced than anything on the market.  It’s called “Sabertooth Baseball,” and look for more information about this next week!

The Big Ten Reverses Course

Filed under: College Football — Tags: , , , , , , , , , — piratings @ 5:53 am

The Big Ten Conference has decided to resume football in 2020, reversing its decision to wait until the Winter/Spring of 2021. The league hopes to begin playing in late October and most likely play an 8-game schedule, concluding on December 19 with the Conference Championship Game.

This will pose big problems with the PiRate Ratings for two reasons, which I am sure the folks at Illinois, Indiana, Penn State, Ohio State, Michigan, Michigan State, Nebraska, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Maryland, Rutgers, Purdue, Iowa, and Northwestern didn’t consider when considering whether or not to return.

The PiRate Ratings will have to recalculate to a 90-team environment from a 76-team environment. Our ratings use sample size in the algorithm and maintain a mean rating of 100.0 (or 100.0 is par value). By the time the Big Ten commences playing, other teams will have played as many as seven game, and their updating criteria will be quite different from the teams just starting play. Even though the Big Ten will be self-contained and play only inside its own environment, for ranking and rating purposes, these teams must be compared on the same par value, which means in order to re-install the Big Ten’s original preseason ratings, the other 76 teams will have to be recalculated, and to be quite honest, not only have we yet to cross that bridge, we cannot find it on a map!

In addition to the recalculation, we will have to create new formats on our spreadsheets and input the new algorithmic formulae for 90 teams (or 76 + however many Big Ten teams play).

Note to Pac-12, MWC, and MAC officials: if you plan on reconsidering your league paradigm this year, please make those decisions known by Noon Saturday!

PiRate Ratings Ready To Go Live

Ahoy Mates!  The PiRates have returned from sea this summer and are ready to hoist the football flag on terra firma for 2019-2020.

It took us a bit longer this year with added data hopefully allowing us to refine our preseason ratings’ process.  After more than 100 days of work, we finally have preseason ratings for the 130 FBS teams.

As we have done every year, we will begin previewing the conferences daily from the lowest rated to the highest rated.  Here is the schedule for each of the previews.

Day Date Conference Preview
Friday Aug 9 Conference USA
Saturday Aug 10 Mid-American
Sunday Aug 11 Sun Belt
Monday Aug 12 Mountain West
Tuesday Aug 13 Independents
Wednesday Aug 14 American Athletic
Thursday Aug 15 Atlantic Coast

Then, on Tuesday, August 20, we will debut our spreads for games involving FBS teams up through Labor Day.  There will be two FBS games on Saturday, August 24, and then the first real week of the season takes place over the Labor Day Holiday Weekend from August 29 through September 2.

As always, we are constantly updating our preseason ratings throughout August as news becomes available concerning personnel changes.  If you are a fan of the Connecticut Huskies, your team has undergone some serious roster moves since the end of Spring Practice, and you have seen some key personnel decide to transfer.

There are also a handful of players that might be awarded immediate eligibility after transferring to a new FBS school.  One or two teams could see a jump of more than one ratings’ point if certain players receive immediate eligibility. allow schools to trade players if both schools have an immediate need for the other school’s player, while their current school has no immediate availability?

 

Some Fun Stuff To Ponder

What if the NCAA allowed schools to trade players if both schools have an immediate need for the other school’s player, while their current school has no immediate need for said players?

Can you imagine if a school like Ohio State had a third string quarterback that would not see meaningful minutes, while they needed a flanker to replace a 1st round draft pick, and then a school like Washington State had seven capable receivers and no quarterback?  What if Ohio State and Washington State could make a trade so that the third string QB at Ohio State can now become the starter at Washington State, while the number five receiver at Washington State can now become the starting flanker with the Buckeyes?

It might have been crazy to consider this 10 years ago, but who knows what the future might bring with players now winning appeals for immediate eligibility for some of the most outlandish reasons like having a disagreeable dormitory environment.  If both of our imaginary players wanted to transfer but were not graduates with immediate eligibility, might the NCAA see merit in allowing two players that would rarely see the field to become starters at another school?

Thanks to your comments to us from our other website, something has been circulating this summer among many of you concerning what will happen with the FBS Playoffs when the current contract expires. This topic has wings.  There has been appreciable mumbling coming forth from the movers and shakers in the college football world.

The former big-time New Year’s Day bowls (Sugar, Cotton/Fiesta, Rose, and Orange) have seen historic low ratings in the years they were not part of the Semifinals of the Playoffs.  The key bowls this year will be played on Saturday, December 28, and the Cotton and Orange Bowls will not be played on New Year’s Day.

These once major epic festivals are almost like the football equivalent of the NIT, and the bowl sponsors are not happy.  The Tournament of Roses Committee is really not happy with their historically low TV ratings, and it has not just affected the game, but the ratings for the parade have been off as well.  I am sure they’d gladly take the old arrangement of the Pac-12 and Big Ten champions and distance themselves from the Playoffs altogether, like they did when the Bowl Coalition did not include the Rose Bowl conferences.  An undefeated Rose Bowl champion would easily be able to claim a national title without appearing in the playoffs, just like Notre Dame won numerous national titles long before they appeared in bowl games.  The Associated Press has awarded National Championships for years, and the national champion in multiple years did not appear in a bowl game.

When the next Playoff contract commences in 2026, you can bet that there will be more than four teams in the playoffs.  It could be six, eight, 12, or 16.  The major bowls will demand that their game stays vitally important every year.  With six teams, five bowls would be needed, but there are six heavyweights, so one would be left out each year.

With eight teams, seven bowls would be needed, which would satisfy the needs of the Rose, Sugar, Orange, Cotton, Fiesta, and Peach every year.  The seventh site could rotate among the other bowls, throwing a one-time bone to the Citrus, Outback, Holiday, Sun, Alamo, and one or two additional bowls.

At 12 or 16 teams, first round games could be played on the home field of the higher-seeded teams before progressing to the bowls.  This would most likely signal the end of conference championship games, but you could see where the big-time schools would gladly give up conference championship games for playoff games.

There is one other topic that has been circulating in college football fan talk this summer, and that is the idea of a Super Football Division consisting of the top 32 programs.  As an example, the top 32 football powers could form their own conference and play only against each other with a super TV contract and NFL-style playoffs based on standings and not the vote of a Committee.  The talk is that these 32 programs could make so much money in football, that they could fund all their other sports and sort of secede from the current NCAA Division 1.  What this would lead to would be the end of Alabama playing Western Carolina in November and Michigan State playing Western Michigan in September.  Instead, there would be weekly games like  Alabama versus Oklahoma, and Ohio State versus Clemson.  All these super schools would play in stadiums with 75,000 to 110,000 seats.  The TV contract would be more like the NFL at its peak.  Imagine a 12-team NFL style playoff with the top superpowers of the gridiron?

This has been rumored for about a quarter century.  Originally, this idea was brushed aside when the major conferences began to expand.  The current belief is that if any conference expands again, they will only do so to bring in teams from outside their current conference media markets.  In other words, The Big Ten would not want Iowa State with Iowa already in the league.  They might want Oklahoma or Oklahoma State but not both, because those rivals come from the same media market.

Likewise, the SEC would not want to add Clemson or Florida State, as they already have South Carolina and Florida.  However, they would gladly take Virginia Tech and one of the Oklahoma schools.

The organic progression would seem to indicate that in the future, one of the Power 5 conferences could fold and its teams would merge into one of the other majors, and there would be four, 16-team super conferences.  However, the media market expansion would not work, because there would be multiple teams from some states, like Texas, and not enough super conferences to join.  Therefore, it is our belief that the only logical solution to this matter is for the top 32 football programs to go at it on their own.  The current Division 1 could be altered from FBS and FCS to 1 A, 1 AA, and 1 AAA.  The 1 AAA would be the top 32 teams.  The 1 AA would be the current remaining 98 FBS plus the top 30 FCS programs that could now compete without the 32 powers.  1 AAA would be all the remaining teams, and then some D2 and NAIA schools might wish to move up.

An NFL Fan Sent This To Us

One of our biggest fans at this site (we didn’t receive permission from him to name him), opined that there could be more than one NFL team trying to position themselves to be 0-16 in 2020.  Much like the Indianapolis Colts tanking to “Suck for Luck,”  the new slogan we have given this is: “Be Clever and Suck for Trevor.”  Trevor Lawrence will be draft eligible in April of 2021.

That doesn’t mean that there won’t be a nice group of available quarterbacks in 2020, as Tua Tagovailoa, Sam Ehlinger, Jake Fromm, Justin Herbert, and others will be available.  However, Lawrence might be the best QB prospect since John Elway, so the stakes will be high in 2021, and it is likely that the team with the worst record in 2020 could be playoff bound by 2022 and Super Bowl worthy by 2023 and for the next 15 years after that.  Teams like Buffalo, Miami, Detroit, Tampa Bay, Oakland/Las Vegas, and Arizona could be in position to sell off one or two key players and be in position to lose big in 2020.  A team like Green Bay or New Orleans could decide to blow up their aging rosters and be terrible for one year, but it would be the right one year.

Looking For The Next Tom Brady

As much as the Colts benefited from drafting Andrew Luck, they have run out of it in January.  Meanwhile, the almost forgotten draft pick  at #199 in 2000, the inimitable Tom Brady, must keep remodeling his home to store all the hardware he has accrued.

Is there a potential second or third day draft quarterback from this year’s crop that could be the diamond in the rough like Touchdown Tom?

We think there is, and ironically, he hails from Brady’s alma mater.  Shea Patterson might be available into the 5th round, because this next class of quarterbacks is full of very good but not superior guys.  The quantity might eventually prove to be greater than the quality, but we see Patterson as flying under the radar.  He has all the tools needed to play at the next level, and we believe his best ability is still to emerge.  Patterson plays in an offense that will not allow him the opportunity to throw the ball 400+ times in 12 games, but what he does with the 350 or so passes should show the right NFL team that he is worth making a late second day or early third day pick on him.
