    UL Basketball Jeff Sagarins Ratings of UL and next two Opponents

    I thought this was interesting.. Still early though..

    Jeff Sagarin NCAA basketball ratings
    RATING W- L SCHEDL (RANK) VS top 10 | VS top 30| ELO CHESS | PREDICTOR

    66 Rice = 80.55 1-0 66.04 (252) 0-0 | 0-0 | 82.60 52 | 77.61


    88 Louisiana = 78.79 1-1 82.41 ( 50) 0-0 | 0-0 | 76.92 101 | 79.15


    142 Georgia St. = 74.66 1-1 79.48 (75) 0-0 | 0-0 | 74.33 135 | 73.43


    In ELO CHESS, only winning and losing matters; the score margin is of no consequence, which makes it very "politically correct". However it is less accurate in its predictions for upcoming games than is the PURE POINTS, in which the score margin is the only thing that matters.

    PURE POINTS is also known as PREDICTOR, BALLANTINE, RHEINGOLD, WHITE OWL and is the best single PREDICTOR of future games.

    The overall RATING is a synthesis of the two diametrical opposites, ELO CHESS and PURE POINTS (PREDICTOR).

    USA TODAAY says "Jeff Sagarin has been providing ratings for USA TODAY since 1985.

    Here is a link to their page that has links for all the Sagarin ratings he does for them.

    Ragin' Cajuns have the 45th toughest schedule.

    as of 2004-12-12 the schedule is up to 26th toughest in the country. The Cajuns are ranked 153.

    Stil the drop came in beating Rice not any of the losses. We have been slowly but surely been rising through the subsequent 3 losses.
