FANPULSE: Nearing sea level

The line keeps dipping.

Yeah, that sums it up.

While most of you are still confident that the Kansas State Wildcats basketball program is moving in the right direction, the dirigible still has a leak. In Week Seven of SB Nation’s basketball FanPulse, your amalgamated confidence level in the Cats has dipped to a season-low 62.5%.

The line says it all.
The line says it all.

Just three samples ago, there was still 100% confidence in the program. But a nightmare trip to New York and agonizing losses in the non-con pushed that number down to 70.6%. A gutsy win over Tulsa Golden Hurricane nudged that up to 72.7% in the last sample, but the opening salvo in Big 12 play has caused the trend to nosedive once again.

In the other question you were asked this week, 37.5% of all SB Nation respondents picked Gonzaga Bulldogs as the best team in the nation, followed by Duke Blue Devils at 21.3%. None of the other options reached the 10% mark, while “some other team” checked in at 19.2%.

Readers of our sister site Big East Coast Bias were asked which Big East team was the most interesting, and Butler Bulldogs ran away with that one, carrying 41.7% of the vote. The folks over at Mid-Major Madness were asked which mid-major they were most confident in, and it was almost an even split between San Diego State Aztecs and Dayton Flyers, 50% to 41.7%. The other 8.3% picked “someone else”, which probably means that one school with only one loss that nobody likes.
