Hey, remember when I wrote about all 4,096 possible win loss combinations for Auburn’s football season? I decided to take on a slightly more ambitious project for the upcoming basketball season.
Auburn plays 30 basketball games. That’s 1,073,741,824 (2^30) possible win/loss combinations. That’s...too many for my computer to handle. But Auburn plays 18 conference games. 2^18 is is 262,144 possible win/loss combinations for conference play. I can manage that!
I punched in Auburn’s current projected win percentage for each game based on preseason Kenpom win expectancy numbers. I did a bunch of excel things. Roughly 16 million formulas later, we get a final result!
