In todays Wall Street Journal there is an article titled the Ultimate Bragging -Rights Study. The study ranks teams by their all-tme records against other top teams. Kentuck comes out number one by winning .878% of their games against the teams involved. They lead over schools such as Duke,Kansas,and UCLA. They list teams that have an all- time advantage over Kentucky. SLU being `one. As we all know SLU is better than Kentucky.

Slight tweak: The article says Kentucky has a series advantage against 87.8% of the teams it plays, not that they have won 87.8% of the games they've played against those teams.

The table that they used for this listed SLU 50th with a 50.8 series winning %. It was second highest in the A-10 to Dayton (32nd with a 56.5% winning percentage) however they only list those A-10 teams that rank in the top 156 (so no Fordham).

p.s. I'm pretty sure Kwijibo could find a lot of reasons this isn't a very good statistical analysis.
