For diehard basketball aficionados, Ken Pomeroy's advanced statistical analysis is a Rosetta stone for understanding the nitty-gritty subtext of college basketball.
Yet Pomeroy, who runs the popular KenPom.com, doesn't need myriad data to offer a blunt assessment of the Southeastern Conference.
“It's the worst power conference in the country,” he said. “It's not particularly close.”
And it doesn't require advanced software or complicated algorithms to understand the crux of the criticism heaped on the league during the nonconference season.
