Mentioned this in a different thread, but Trank has a stat that compares a team’s profile and resume with other historical teams.

Last year’s MU team is on the list for most similar resume (as projected to the end of the season).  Last year’s team is the most similar efficiency profile to this year’s team. In my opinion, the loss of the bros made MU not as good, but they aren’t worse then they were last year.

If they go 12-6 again with their close wins/ losses sprinkled throughout the season, instead of concentrated in the calendar, they will likely be a 5 seed again. With way less consternation then a year ago.

I guess I fall into the Debbie downer camp and have been quiet based off a long layoff before they play a meaningful game. I stated earlier that they had one real tier one D1 player (play meaningful minutes at top ten program) and believe that more than when first stated.

Very happy to see some guys step up and play a big game, but need to see BB or others do it more than one game. Do not see any real reason to believe this team is better than a 7 or 8, and think that may be reach.

All that said, looking forward to see if Wojo can coach the guys up in BE play. IMO, success or failure will come down to Koby and Johnson and how they play. They remain the two guys that might be difference makers for this team.

I think solid contributions from BB can help this team big time.
