Extended interview with Tacos

4

Gold and Black Live had a nice conversation with Travis Carroll. He talks about Hammons, a bit about what it's like to play for Painter, and lots of other stuff. Interestingly, he mentioned that his favorite game was when E'Twaun demolished Ohio State a few years ago.

Thanks DJ and Dru

I saw a thread posted on GBI thanking DJ and Dru for their contributions to the program. I hadn't seen anything like that here at H&R, so I thought I'd put one up. Who knows if anyone connected...

Is the CBI a possibility?

Well, that game sucked. I know some folks on here would prefer to see this season crawl away into the wild and sit under a tree waiting to die. But for those of us who'd still like to watch...

Getting shots and making shots

Over at Black Shoe Diaries, they write a weekly Big Ten wrap-up that contains something they call a Tempo-Free Aerial. It is basically a scatterplot where each team in the Big Ten is plotted...

Tempo-free preview of Iowa

This afternoon Mackey Arena welcomes visitors from that haven of Nazi-sympathizers, Honey Boo Boo watchers, and Kenny G listeners--Iowa City. Here's what Fran McCaffery and his fascist thugs bring...

On Thursday night, Purdue heads into the GMC Dodge Crisler Center to face some formidable Wolverines. They do wear blue and yellow (maize, my ass), but as far as I know they aren't actually mutants...

Tempo-free preview of West Virginia

A little less than 3 years ago, the adolescent Boilers stomped a West Virginia team that was destined to make the Final Four. Today, Bob Huggins brings a much less intimidating group of...

A Tempo-Free Preview of Penn State

Welcome to my second tempo-free preview. Although my last preview drew the awesomely wrong conclusion that we had a good chance to force OSU into a bad shooting game (whoops!), I think the...

A Tempo-Free Look at Ohio State

While the staff at H&R do great previews for the games, I thought I'd write up a little something from the perspective of advanced statistics. I hope to make it stat-based without being too ...

OK, so that was a brutal loss. Nothing's going to make it better except time, drinking, or distractions. I can't shift time or buy you all a drink, but I think I can provide a distraction. You...

Tempo-Free look at the matchup with VCU

I like tempo-free stats. Here's what they tell me to expect from VCU.   On offense, their four factors numbers are surprisingly similar to Purdue's:  (1) They take care of the basketball (17.2%...

Simulating the Big Ten Tournament

I wrote a little program to use Ken Pomeroy's tempo-free stats to simulate the outcome of the Big Ten tournament.  If you're interested, the results are after the jump.
