Preseason predictions

Postby stennisrm72 » Mon Sep 17, 2018 3:54 pm

Standing in line at the grocery this afternoon and spot one of the college basketball magazines. They are predicting a 10th place finish for the Aces. I call BS.

They are primarily P5 magazines. They most likely spend 15 minutes or less ranking any conference below that. I have yet to see a post-season magazine that analyzes how accurate they were after the fact. Throw in a new coach and a new system and all they have to offer is a wild guess. I usually buy one because they do have information on teams like graduations, transfers, new coaches, etc. But the predictions make me yawn. I don't put much stock into anyone's pre-season predictions and that includes my own. Luck, injuries, suspensions and officiating (good or bad) are huge factors and no one can predict them in advance.

Difference between 4th and 10th is probably 2 wins.
I agree, those magazines were published in July.
