Kentucky down at 10 is interesting. I expected a ton of hype due to the transfers.

Obviously college football drives re-alignment, but with the expected additions of Charlotte, FAU, North Texas, Rice, UAB, and UTSA, the American is just Conference USA with a fancier logo.

Memphis will rule a mid-major conference once again!

Is Sahvir Wheeler even the 4th best player on UK? Is he even going to be starting?

Pippen Jr was POTY… and Vandy was picked second to last.

Are they playing TyTy off the ball?

No.

ESPN seems to believe he’ll be starting. Why? I don’t know.

Looks like Texas got all the transfer hype instead.

Are the rules about the “gather step” different in college? Cuz stuff like Harden’s stepback isn’t illegal (if executed properly, executing it is tough though).

Can’t really trust what that guy is saying because he said technically the eurostep is illegal which is just wrong

Adam Miller out for the year for LSU. Big loss for LSU, and I’m sure Illinois fans have some very rational comments on the matter

That’s brutal for him, hate to see that. Thought he was a good fit there.

when did this injury occur?

Just saw this pretty interesting metric. Michigan has the largest fanbase on Kenpom by a pretty big margin https://kenpom.com/popular.php

That’s the first time we’ve been #1. Historically it’s been Indiana and Kansas.

That is interesting. On the other hand, I think Michigan may have the largest fanbase for most things. It’s got the 3rd largest alumni group in the nation (only Penn St. and Indiana have more).

Can someone explain why this is the case? I see it very often, but it doesn’t make sense when schools like ASU, UCF, OSU, etc. are outputting way more students annually. What is the metric actually measuring? How many people are signed up to the school’s alumni ‘group?’

The source was University Magazine (found online) and its criteria was number of living alumni. Beyond that, I’d be guessing.

EDIT: my source was from 2018, but Michigan’s numbers were higher then, than ASU’s is now, according to a recent article (2021) on ASU’s numbers. But they’re getting closer for sure.

I think all Big Ten schools are fairly well represented due to the Big Ten Wonk (John Gasaway) back in the day. I’m sure having MGoBlog (and hopefully this site) also helps.
