That Grantland article is really entertaining… Funny how similar Titus’s style is to Simmons’s.

CTC mentioned Seth Cooper & turnover research. Has that been mentioned here and I missed it (or was over my head & I gave up)? Would you’all be able to get your hands on it & would it be appropriate to share here..?

Ron,
I talked about the turnover thing on Twitter, and I think it might be in my blog. I wouldn’t be able to get the actual paper, but the thrust of it was that when Indiana doesn’t turn the ball over, it averages 1.47 points per possession, which is astronomical. I’m not sure there’s anything else to know, but that was the point. It just shows the value of a turnover to Indiana. When they get the ball down the floor and take a shot, they’re that efficient, so that’s what they’re costing themselves when they fail to get a shot off.
And no, we won’t have anybody to go to Tampa/St. Pete. We’ve got a nice budget for a paper our size, but it’s not THAT big to go do baseball road trips like that one. Saving all of our pennies for the NCAA Tournament.
