How is purdue 9-7 and still 23 ken pom

Now rated 23rd but dropping like a rock.

Purdue was ranked #6 less than a month ago.

Pomeroy's model prefers a team that loses a lot of close games against strong opposition more than one that wins a lot of close games against weak opposition.

Reading the Pomeroy ratings are a lot like reading the Ragozin or Thorograph sheets in horse racing.

Pomeroy minimized the importance of big victory margins after the 2012-13 season.

A victory by 20 or a victory by 50 over one of the worst teams in the country would mean little to the winning team's KenPom rating.
