In-Season Polls and Rankings

I think coaching and style of play are factors as well. As I watched several mid- major basketball games this weekend, I was struck by how unimaginative the offenses are. Lots of dribbling and guys just standing around (very little motion/movement). Most of the offense was driving to the basket and throwing up a contested shot and/or hoping for a foul to be called. Ugly. 

Contrast that with several Summit League teams that run entertaining offenses.

Massey also has a composite ratings page that shows ratings for about 40 different systems and averages them. ORU is a composite #108 also. https://masseyratings.com/cb/compare.htm

Cool!  That could have saved me 30 minutes during lunch today posting all those links! 🤣

Even the “Blew Crew” is ranked in the polls!

(and note the Team of Local Interest figuring prominently in the antithesis ranking - lol)

That is awesome although I don’t think I have ever heard of this kind of ranking before.  I texted that to my daughter who was one of the Blue Crew in KC on Saturday.  They earned it!

Leave it to Kelly Hines of the Tulsa World:  real objective, defending/promoting TU while trying to embarrass ORU at the same time.

I would say something about it on her Twitter account, but she blocked me about a decade ago when I called her out on similar homer takes. 

She ought to be on TU's payroll... 🙄

Haha that's funny. They hate her for some reason. I think they just hate everybody.

I thought it had something to do with her shoe obsession.

Bingo.  That was the last straw for her after a couple of other run-ins.

I think that warrants a decade-long ban, don't you? 🙄
