I thought people might enjoy a graphical look at how Kentucky is improving, and what a difference a road win makes (click the pic to enlarge). Here is the RPI since the Vandy game. Notice the 32 place improvement after Tennessee, and the 26 place improvement after Georgia, our first road win.
Here's a look at the Pomeroy ratings and Sagarin's Pure Points, as a better measure of how good the team is. The trend is improvement overall. The Pure Points is a good measure of how many points we can score vs. how many an opponent can. (Excel wouldn't line the points up right, but the first ones you see are the morning of the Vandy game, the next you see are the day after, and so on).
Tonight will hopefully bring another needed road win.
