Wonder if we have anything like this behind the scenes.

Jerry Krause was our analytics guy. He will be greatly missed at GU men's basketball!!!!!!!!!!

Whether it was his "contraptions" or his wisdom or his grading system or ....just HIM, I don't think we will know how much Dr Krause did and did it quietly in the background. Amazing man.

Meanwhile, what an interesting article. Thanks for posting./. As an aside, to the right column of the article is MSU, schedule. TOugher than we'll ever see. The one complaint this past year and basically why we didn't get a no 1 seed was the schedule and that silly BYU loss at the end.. When I look at MSU's schedule, I sorta see why.

Yeah the first five was the NCAA Tournament. I would expect a team as a 7 seed to see a tougher 5 than us if they are going to the Final Four LOL!
