Lunch. It’s what retired old farts do. And it’s great when one’s fellow repaster is a great conversationalist. Belly sure meets that criteria.
So, we’re swinging, swaying and swerving from one topic of critical — Affordable Care Act, the recent Chris Matthews Q & A — or not so critical — Victoria’s Secret TV fashion show — import to another. Serial non-sequiturs, more or less.
At one point, out of the blue — actually out of the red — he asks, “How does Ken Pomeroy rank U of L number one?”
Which is the question I have been asking myself every day, after checking his highly lauded computerized ratings.
“I haven’t the slightest idea,” I say.
I mean KenPom does factor in strength of schedule. And figures that in as his algorithmic ranking system sorts out the stats.
But the Cards as Numero Uno just doesn’t make any sense, at this juncture of the season.
Despite the reality that some fans, okay, one in particular, accuse me of being an inveterate UK fan, my loyalty does lie with the Red & Black. I hope and pray that Pomeroy is correct, but my team hasn’t passed the eye test yet.
