RE: Season 8 CEACC Preseason Coaches Poll
This entire thread is everyone bitching about their rankings and how good or bad their teams are.

I am done with it. I really didn't mean to start shit with my rankings.

RE: Season 8 CEACC Preseason Coaches Poll
I'll speak for myself on my 16th place ranking of team Needabuzz. I just don't care for many of the picks. Barber, Rodriguez, and Nnoko make the most sense, but there were a couple I just don't think will pan out. I have absolutely nothing against you. I was pulling for your team after I got knocked out of the tourney just because of how much shit people give you for your draft picks. I admittedly had team Needabuzz pegged 5 spots lower than they finished last year.

1) Justin Jackson is the 3rd or 4th best player on his own team, and you took him 5th overall. Solid player - 3rd round production.
2) Cat Barber has upside - decent pick
3) Chase Jeter is not Jahlil Okafor. I don't think he's even Amile Jefferson.
4) Rodiguez could be a 4th round steal. I passed on him to pick Eli Carter, which could have been a bad decision.
5) Nnoko is solid in the 5th round
6) Adam Smith won't be able to duplicate his VaTech numbers. I'm expecting a dropoff, especially if Tadric Jackson earns PT
7) Deng Adel has looked great, but there's no clear spot for him in UofL's rotation to get more than 15 minutes a night
8) Jaylen Johnson looked like the 3rd best PF on UofL's roster until putting up good numbers during the 1st scrimmage. I don't trust scrimmage numbers
9) Matt Jones - solid 9th round pick
10) Lennard Freeman - solid 10th round pick

It is all good man. Good luck to your team. You have had lots of success so I am sure you will continue that.

I hope you are wrong in your predictions of my team.

Why are you always so serious? For someone that "only does this for fun", you sure seem to take it quite serious. This is a fun preseason rankings thread. I don't give a shit what you rank me really. It's something to talk about until we start playing games.

I don't think my team is top two because I have several weeks where I lose my best players for one game at key times.

After the renaissance Michelle Monaghan enjoyed on True Detective Season 1, I was VERY disappointed that the same didn't happen for McAdams.

Interpretation: why no Rachel nudity?

(10-12-2015 01:48 AM)DieHardCards Wrote:  Ballot Notes:
-No huge gaps in average pick ranking like there have been in years past.
-33% of voters had the Empire as their number one team.
-9/15 voters had the Empire in their top 3.
-44% of voters had the Rum Pirates as their last placed team.
-There were 3 ties in average pick ranking. Fugly's and Shooters tied for 4th. Dragons and Kitty Cats tied for 7th. Bitches and Hothot tied for 12th.
-8 teams received first place rankings (most were NOT self cast). Freeballers were tabbed as 3rd despite ZERO first place rankings. They were in 7 coaches top 4.
-My rankings VS consensus rankings says that I underrated Shooters, Ballers and Wheats the most and Overrated the Hammers the most.
-5 players received POTY votes. (Marcus Paige, Michael Gbinije, Codi Miller-McIntyre, Brandon Ingram, Demetrius Jackson)
-Ingram and Gbinije are the only others receiving multiple votes and they both had 3. Paige had 7.
-9 guards received nominations. 10 Forwards. 5 Centers. 9 Utility.
-4 players received nominations at 2 different positions. (Gbinije, Thomas, Auguste, Meeks)
-Gbinije had the second most votes behind Paige (10) with 8 votes--5 at forward, 3 at Guard.
-Of the 9 utility players receiving votes, only 3 had more than 1 and Reed had 1/3 of the votes.
-This is the second straight year that Marcus Paige was voted as Preseason CEACC POTY.
So I dumped all these preseason ballots for record and embarrassment later in the season. Found a couple more gold nuggets.
  • Of the 11 ballots posted in this thread, 8 owners overrated themselves relative to the final poll
  • Most owners overrated themselves by 3 or 4 spots
  • 1 owner overrated himself by 15 spots
  • HotHots ballot was by far the closest to the final poll
  • Only 2 owners voted themself in the bottom half of the league

I thought the final poll looked familiar. Got pretty much the top 6 and bottom 2 exactly the same. Strange.

Yep. Just looked. XRM was literally the difference, too. Definitely my big miss last season. To think I decided I should take Mangok and Mike Tobey before XRM. Should have just gone with another guard and taken literally whoever was left from the center pile.

Should I have waited 2 seasons before mentioning?

I remember reading that XRM was a great shooter and had the potential to shoot the ball quite a bit, but that's about it.

I don't think injury was the issue with Aaron Thomas. Coach Dean has been known to run a loose program, and the CEBEAA finally caught up to him. Dean professed "I didn't know anything about it" so the hammer was dropped on Thomas and Deano got outta there scott free. Shady recruiting for sure.

Only if they have smaller scale games. So much variance, especially if they use the OOC games vs. non-DI opponents.

"think" is a weird word to use considering we have 7 years of proof to see who's good at it.

How does the college basketball league work? I saw the scoring format, but that's the only info fan duel provides. Is it for all 351 teams? Is a 1 day league the only format they have? That seems terrible for college basketball.

I didn't mean it as a knock. You guys do know these players well. I think you all would do well. I do think it is all NCAA teams. I am not sure exactly how it works. I just happen to see that you could do it. They have college football as well.
