Wisconsin's skill level and execution is insane, but if I have to watch one more game where both teams struggle to score 50 points and no one gets a shot off before 3 seconds left on the shot clock, I might go insane. Lord help us if Wisconsin ever plays Western Illinois.
Lord help us if Wisconsin ever plays Virginia.
Pomeroy still has them ridiculously overrated at #2. Does anyone think they are a Final Four team? They'll be lucky to finish top four in their own conference.
Pomeroy's methodology has it's own biases, unintentional as they may be. Wisconsin has very few turnovers, and gets a ton of offensive rebounds per possession. In Pomeroy's methodology, you can throw up the worst brick with a second left on the shot clock, but if you get the offensive board, that extends the possession, not creates another one.
The Badgers do all the things well that KenPom values, but that overrates them by 15-20 places every year. Anyone think they are closer to the #2 team in the country rather than the #19 or 20 that the coaches and media have them?
Absolutely agree they are overrated, but a team that doesn't turn the ball over and gets a lot of second chance opportunities is a team that can make a run in the tourney.
