Last month, I had the honor of being a guest on Assembly Call, the Indiana Hoosiers basketball podcast. Show runner Jerod Morris, Andy Bottoms and I discussed the upcoming college basketball season.
To prep for the show, I developed some preseason Big Ten rankings that combine calculations with subjective factors. It’s similar to what elite gamblers do in preparation for the season.
I wrote an article for Assembly Call that describes the methods and summarizes my thoughts on all 14 Big Ten teams.
My apologies in advance to Maryland fans.
And Bo Ryan’s announcement that he will retire after this season doesn’t change my mind on Wisconsin’s preseason rank, which you might find surprising.
