Overrated already I see.
6/17/2014 11:08 PM
Well jsa, don't be so sure. The Starr Engine also threw out predictions similar to Bullman's. =SE has Millsaps at #1 and Kenyon at #2. Either way, you better make the championship game or everyone's going to be laughing at you.

=SE's Final 4 predictions are up on the site: (Gosh I'd love to have bullman's permission to make a special page for all of his stuff)

Feel free to put any of my stuff on a page on your site, starr.

Well, since all the cool kids are doing it, here we go with the Way Too Early Final Four...

Way too early Final Four

Chapman (shine06) went 22-9 last season and was ousted in the first round of the national tournament. Shine is in his fourth season at the helm of the program with a 56-33 record to show for his first three seasons. Chapman's strength will be down low where seniors Thomas Gallaway and Ronnie Kelley combined to average nearly 17 points per game last season and should push that total higher this season. The team is also well poised with three seniors and five juniors who should be nice and mature in time for the post-season.

Johnson & Wales (spasticity) was 33-2 last year, bookending its season with losses to Millsaps, the latter coming in the national title game. This year's crew starts 55/50/56 in the Ath/Spd/Def trifecta and, like Chapman, has 3 seniors and five juniors on the roster. Unlike Chapman, J-Dub's strength is likely on the perimeter where Mark White and David Nanney both begin the year in the 700 club. Nanney has a ridonkulous 100 perimeter rating, probably why he averaged nearly 19 points per game last season. White was good for another 13 as a redshirt junior. No reason not to expect spas to make another deep run.

Millsaps (brianxavier) ran the table last season with a 35-0 national championship campaign. He could be right back there in the promised land again with a team sporting 10 upperclassmen. The Ath is a solid 58 and the Def, while down from its rating in the 70s last season, is still plenty salty beginning the year at 63. Senior Shon Leos averaged nearly 15 points last season and has almost 1,000 to show for his career already. Pierre Leigh also looks like he could have a monster campaign on the horizon. If there's a vulnerability for teams to exploit while looking to hang an L on Millsaps for the first time in more than a season, could it lie with a team pass rating that's just 30?

Whittier (windixies) was a Final Four program last season with a 29-5 mark. He's got the youngest roster of the four I'm featuring with only seven upperclassmen, but the team is already 54/50/52 to begin the year. Eddie Dickey averaged better than 10 points as a sophomore and looks to work his way up the ladder even more this season. Meanwhile, we don't know who Michal Rykaczewski will haunt more in his senior season, play-by-play announcers or opposing post defenders as he attacks with an LP of 99 and averaged 14 points a year ago.


UNDERRATED....if I had to go darkhorse this season, watch out for No. 16 and Sim-coached Lebanon Valley. The school hasn't danced in the national tournament since Season 39, but has a great superclass setup of six seniors and five juniors. The ATH value is lacking, but it still isn't a school I'd want to see on my schedule this year. We'll get a feel for just how good they are in the non-conference season as a host of humans spotted this power roster for non-conference fodder. Wooster gets first crack.

Staying in the Centennial, I also wouldn't go to sleep on zeuspole and Susquehanna, and not just because it's zeuspole and Susquehanna. Ranked No. 20 in the preseason, the number looks like a sick joke. This is a team that could easily be 10 slots higher and still potentially underrated. The LP rating of 23 might be a bit of a concern, but I'd be stunned not to see this group ranked higher than 20 when the dust settles at season's end for last year's PIT champion.

Hey guys, I've got another question if you don't mind. What is your advice on depth chart fatigue settings? Do you have the starters on Getting Tired and subs on Fairly Fresh? I'd like to hear your thoughts on that. Also good luck to everybody as the season starts tonight. I'm hoping on making any kind of postseason tourney
6/18/2014 12:23 PM
I usually have balanced teams with plenty of depth so i use fairly fresh on everybody. However, if your starters are a lot better than your reserves then putting them at getting tired is a good idea.
6/18/2014 12:58 PM
+1 on Carson's advice. There are some situations other than what Carson mentioned where you might consider using "getting tired" for some of your starters. You can send me a sitemail about it if you like and I'll go into more detail there, but think of "fairly fresh" as the ideal setting for every player and never set anyone to "tired" or "very tired" unless you are trying to lose to a #16 seed in the first round of the NT.
6/18/2014 1:13 PM
Ok thanks guys
6/18/2014 7:49 PM
Is pseudochamp planning on doing the GotD and Carson 330 SotD? They were pretty interesting when I read through last season's thread.
6/18/2014 8:41 PM
Apologies but I'm currently on vacation and returning this Sunday, so the GotD write-ups will get a late start this season. If someone wants to cover the first couple days, fire away, otherwise I'll post either Sunday or Monday. Good luck this season everybody.
6/18/2014 8:42 PM
Also, posting to the forums from a cruise ship! Boom!
6/19/2014 11:27 AM (edited)
I'll give it my best shot but can't promise the best results.
Disclaimer: I'm doing this on mobile so no bold headlines or cool formatting :)

GotN:
#4 Johnson and Wales (0-0) (spasticity) @ #5 Millsaps (0-0) (brianxavier)
Two DIII powerhouses will treat us to the start off the 74th season as Johnson and Wales will travel to Jackson, Missouri. Expect it to be every bit as exciting as last year which ended with Millsaps pulling off a 3 point victory. Millsaps will also get the 1 point spread due to being the home team. Either team could still be dancing come the Final Four and this will give us an early look of two solid teams.
It's also worth noting that Millsaps is on a 35 game win streak and we will see if spasticity will be able to snap that streak.

Matches Worth Noting:
Wooster @ #16 Lebanon Valley, #20 Susquehanna @ Aurora, #21 South Vermont @ Mississippi College, Dallas @ #25 Calvin, SUNY Farmingdale @ California Tech.(May or may not be biased :p)

Blowout Watch:
#1 Vassar(-62 spread) @ Waynesburg - Waynesburg fans might want to stay at home if they don't want to witness the slaughter that will take place

Good luck to everyone as Season #74 is officially underway!!
