First Impressions
The annual Black and Gold Blowout was today. The Hawkeyes split into two teams to scrimmage in front of 6,532 eager fans at Carver-Hawkeye Arena. It was the first chance for many of us to see new guys like Doug Thomas, Carlton Reed, Alex Thompson, and J.R. Angle. I showed up early to get a good seat and get my basketball fix. The teams broke down like this:

BlackGold
Jeff HornerPierre Pierce
Greg BrunnerErek Hansen
Carlton ReedMike Henderson
Doug ThomasAlex Thompson
J.R. AngleJustin Wieck
Jack BrownleeJack Brownlee


Huh? Iowa has two guys named Jack Brownlee? Nope, he started out with the Gold squad but switched over at half time to give the five-man Black team some breathers. Anyway, Gold beat Black, 69-62. Here are some random things I saw while I was there.


All in all, it was a fun morning/afternoon. I got to see my first basketball game in way too many months, and I got a first glimpse at some current and future Hawkeye stars. Next game is home on Wednesday against Upper Iowa University.

Don't Forget...
The Black and Gold Blowout is Saturday at 11:30am. Doors open at 10:15. I'll be there to check out the team, especially the new guys. Maybe Doug Thomas will live up to his hype and dazzle the crowd with some big dunks. Hopefully I'll have some pictures online by Sunday (that's assuming, of course, that I can figure out how to post images). I know it's only an intra-squad scrimmage, but damn, it's going to be nice to see some basketball again.

One More Guy's Predictions
I'm sure by now you've already read enough predictions about the conference to make this one irrelevant. I'll type up mine anyway so I have something to look back on at the end of the year - it'll be a good reminder of how little I actually know.

I'm getting more fired up every day for the new season of basketball. I know the Big Ten isn't as loaded as the ACC and lacks some of the big names of the Big East, but the conference returns enough talent that it should improve on last year's meager three team contribution to the NCAA Tournament. The top three teams seem to be pretty safe bets to return to the post-season. Michigan is coming off their NIT title and return all but one starter, a group which does not include their leading scorer, Lester Abram, who also returns. The Wolverines should be in good shape this year. Iowa certainly has an interesting team this year, with three quality starters coming back, and some solid transfers, but they'll be relying on a lot of new faces for their depth.
Here's how I see things ending up:

1. Michigan State
2. Illinois
3. Wisconsin
4. Michigan
5. Iowa
6. Indiana
7. Ohio State
8. Northwestern
9. Purdue
10.Penn State
11.Minnesota

Doesn't look much different than everyone else's picks, although I don't see too many people with Michigan State at the top.

Let's throw in my All-Big Ten First Team:

Deron Williams, Illinois
Bracey Wright, Indiana
Paul Davis, Michigan State
Chris Hill, Michigan State
Mike Wilkinson, Wisconsin

I'd like to add in some analysis, but I'm a little short on time tonight. There's still plenty of preseason left to make additional faulty predictions, so I'll flesh this post out a little more, hopefully this weekend.

Something to Think About
The Big Ten is considering some changes to it's regular season schedule and post-season tournament for after this season.



Among the options to be considered: Playing an 18- or 20-game conference
schedule instead of the current 16, and having a tourney format in which teams
earn their way into the field. All 11 teams currently participate.

The 20 game schedule wouldn't bother me much, since it would mean that each team would play home and away against every other team, instead of the unbalanced schedule we have now. Some might think it would be too long of a season, but I generally like changes that promote equal opportunity. For example, when I looked over this year's schedule, I noticed Indiana only plays Iowa, Michigan State, and Illinois one time each, whereas Purdue plays each of those three teams twice. Do those teams start the season with an equal chance? I think anytime you have a balanced schedule the league as a whole is better off.

The league's other proposal would be to cut the conference tournament to three days by trimming the qualifying teams from 11 down to 8. I suppose this makes sense in that you have to earn your way into the tournament, which makes the regular season games seem to mean more, but I don't like the idea much. To me, March basketball is all about the excitement of some weak team making an improbable three or four day run to sneak into the Big Dance when it has no right being there (2001, anyone?). Leave those bottom-feeders in the tournament so they still have that faint ray of hope to guide them at the end of the season. The top four teams in the conference get byes in the first round anyway, so that's gives some meaning to the regular season.

Breaking Down the Conference Schedule
Yesterday I said that I was going to make my preseason picks for the standings and for the all-conference team. In preparing to do so, I got a little sidetracked. I decided to take a look at how the uneven scheduling would affect different teams' chances.

As many of you know, the Big Ten does not follow the traditional round-robin conference format, where each team plays a home and away game with each other team. Instead, they play home and away with six teams and just one game with the four remaining teams, for a total of 16 conference games. This creates an imbalance in the schedule (e.g., Michigan State plays Illinois once this year, while Iowa faces the Illini twice). I went a little crazy and tried to create a simple, unscientific model to see which teams have the easiest/hardest conference schedule.

Method
I started by assigning each team a value. I used the predicted standings from Big Ten Media Day and gave the best team (Illinois) 11 points, second best 10 points, and so on. Then I added total values for all the conference games a team would play. The higher the team's score, the more difficult their schedule. To illustrate, Iowa's scoring went like this:



Michigan(8) x 2 = 16
Ohio State(4) x 2 = 8
Minnesota(2) x 2 = 4
Illinois(11) x 2 = 22
Purdue(3) x 2 = 6
Northwestern(5) x 2 = 10
Indiana(6) x 1 = 6
Michigan State(10) x 1 = 10
Wisconsin(9) x 1 = 9
Penn State(1) x 1 = 1

Total = 92


Here are the results, starting with the easiest schedules.

Schedule Difficulty
Illinois84
Michigan State84
Indiana91
Iowa 92
Minnesota95
Ohio State98
Purdue98
Wisconsin99
Michigan100
Northwestern104
Penn State105


Notes/Observations
1. The fewest points any team could score (where the top team plays the 2-5 teams only once) is 76.
2. The most points any team could score (where the last place team plays the 7-10 teams only once) is 116.
3. Starting higher in the original standings makes one's schedule inherently easier, because that team does not have to play itself. For example, Illinois is more likely to have an easier schedule than Penn State because Illinois does not have to play itself, but gets at least one game against Penn State.
4. I did not take into account whether games were played at home or on the road.

Does all this work really accomplish anything? Before sifting through all the numbers, I think we could see that Iowa was lucky to only play Michigan State and Wisconsin once each this year. This shows up in their relatively low schedule difficulty number. It helps me, anyway, to have a little chart (attempting) to measure schedule difficulty instead of trying to compare each team's individual schedule. Hope you get some use out of it too.

Take: Two
I've read before about the frustrations people have with Blogger when they type up a post and then lose it in the process of publishing it. Now I got to experience it first hand - yay! (Note to self: save posts from now on.)

Anyway, the regular season for Big Ten teams gets underway in less than two weeks, which is getting me and a lot of other people pretty damn excited. I don't have much time to post tonight, so I linked to two preview articles that include predictions for the order of finish in the conference this year. The busy part of my week ends tomorrow afternoon, so I'll toss in my picks for conference champs and all-conference team sometime tomorrow. I should have a little more time on my hands Thursday, so look for some new additions to the site. OK, time to put a dent into that pile of homework, then I'm off to an election party (let's hope there's celebrating to be done!).

Room for Improvement
I realize there's very few (read: zero) people who might actually see this site at this early stage, but I'm asking for a little leniency anyway. I'm new to blogging, so please let the aesthetic deficiencies of this site slide until I find some time to figure things out. Much like the Hawks this year, I'm optimistic for what lies in the months to come.

 
Stretching the Talent
The Hawkeyes added weekly yoga sessions to their training. I think this is a great move on the part of new associate head coach Craig Neal, who started the program here. It should provide important benefits that are often overlooked in athletic training. Weight training is obviously integral to any athletic program, and is usually emphasized, but it's only part of the picture. Increased flexibilty allows athletes to take their added strength from the weight room and apply it to an increased range of motion. The players mentioned that they lacked flexibility before they started yoga, so I think we'll see improvements in their athleticism if they stick with the program. Coach Alford even mentioned the possibility of adding a second session each week, which I'm all for. Players should also see improvements in their mobility and balance, and a decreased susceptibility to injury.

Hawkeye Hoops Stats Glossary
Here are equations for a few uncommon statistics that are commonly used at Hawkeye Hoops.




TEAM RATINGS

*Team Possessions = FGA - Oreb + TO + (0.4 x FTA)

*Offensive Efficiency = (Points Scored / Possessions) x 100

*Defensive Efficiency = (Points Allowed / Possessions) x 100

Expected Winning % = Offensive Efficiency^10 / (Offensive Efficiency^10 + Defensive Efficiency^10)

*Scoring Possession = any possession on which the team scores at least 1 point

Four Factors = rate stats measuring a team's effectiveness at each component of the possessions formula. They include adjFG%, TO/poss, Oreb rate, and either FTA/FGA or FTM/FGA.

Offensive Rebound Rate (Oreb rate) = Oreb / (Oreb + Opponent's Dreb)
- measures a team's ability to extend possessions through offensive rebounds

Defensive Rebound Rate (Dreb rate) = Dreb / (Dreb + Opponent's Oreb)
- measures a team's success at ending their opponent's possession after they force a missed shot

Total Rebound % = Rebounds / (Rebounds + Opponent's Rebounds)

Adjusted Field Goal % (adjFG%) = [FGM + (0.5 x 3PM)] / FGA

Free Throw Attempts per Field Goal Attempt = FTA / FGA
- measures how frequently a team gets to the free throw line

Three Point Attempts per Field Goal Attempt = 3PA / FGA
- measures how many of a team's shots are three pointers

INDIVIDUAL RATINGS

*Floor Percentage = the ratio of a player's scoring possessions to his total possessions

*Scoring Possessions = contribution to a team scoring possession
- players get credit (and partial credit) toward scoring possessions through field goals, free throws, assists, and offensive rebounds

*Individual Possessions = sum of a player's scoring possessions, missed shots and free throws that are rebounded by the defense, and turnovers

*Points Produced = points a player generates through field goals, free throws, assists, and offensive rebounds
- e.g., when a player scores a 2 pt FG that is assisted on, the shooter and passer each get credited with a fraction of the 2 pts

*Offensive Rating = (Points Produced / Possessions) x 100

*Percent of Team Possessions (%Poss) = [(individual possessions) / 40 min] / (team possessions / game)
- an estimate of how much of a team's possessions a player uses while he's playing
- players' offensive ratings generally increase as they use fewer possessions, and fall when they use more

**Rebound % = Rebounds / [(Team Rebounds + Opponent's Rebounds) x (Minutes / Team Minutes)]

**True Shot % (TS%) = Points / [2 x (Field Goals Attempted + 0.44 x Free Throws Attempted)]

Steal % = Steals / [Team Possessions x (Minutes / Team Minutes)]

Pass Rating = "Assist Part" / Individual Possessions
- "assist part" is a component of Oliver's Points Produced formula - it estimates the points a player produces through assists

Free Throw Rate = (FT Made x FT%) / min x 100
- I first saw this at Justin Kubatko's awesome Basketball-Reference

Three Point Rate = (3pt Made x 3pt%) / min x 100
- another creation of Mr. Kubatko



*from Dean Oliver's Basketball On Paper

**I think these are generally credited to John Hollinger, author of Basketball Prospectus
