The 2015-16 UK Surge
In Graphical Terms
When the surge occurred in 2012, I saw it in my data, but I struggled with a way to show it graphically in a form that most people could view and realize, yes this is really happening. This morning, UK has risen to #7 in the Pomeroy ranking, and I decided to look at Pomeroy ranking prior to each game this season, and the graph below results.
This graph shows several things.
This team continues to surge. Movement up the Pomeroy chart from 7 to 1 will be much more difficult than moving from #30 to #7, but this year that movement will be easier than most because the power levels of the top 5 teams this year are not head and shoulders above the pack like they would be in most seasons.
Go Big Blue!

How Have The Pomeroy Rankings Worked Out
With Recent National Champions?
Very Well, actually, with the #1 rated team winning the
National Championship in 2008, 2009, 2010, 2012, and 2013.
In 2011, Connecticut came out of nowhere for an amazing run
to the Championship as the #10 rated team on the Season.
