Pomeroy has Louisville at No. 8

College basketball and computer formulas have become as compatible as Preston Knowles and the contested jumper in recent years. But even with new websites highlighting new formulas popping up on a daily basis, the most respected and referenced is still Ken Pomeroy's.

KenPom.com is out with its fresh rankings and projections this morning, and the site has Louisville at No. 8 and projects a 22-9 (12-6) season for the Cards. In far less cool news, Kentucky is No. 1.

Here's how Pomeroy sees Louisville's season playing out:
