Again, these models look at the whole body of work, including our games against the like of Miami and Missouri. If we had even a semi-respectable non-conference performance, it would be a whole different story and we'd be probably top 20ish.So I was wrong. Illinois moved from 31 to 30 on the site. However, the basketball team is rated lower than Minnesota,Rutgers, Purdue, Iowa, Michigan and Penn State I believe. With all due respect to all you statistical
megadata geeks,Illinois has beaten all those teams. WTF.
