    our wins against RPI top 100 is not good.

    2011-2012 Men's College Basketball Rating Percentage Index (RPI) Live - WarrenNolan.com

    Wins:
    (rpi)
    Prairie View-327
    T. Tech-320
    Lehigh-308
    Central Michigan-263
    Lipscomb-211
    Western Carolina-206
    N. Colorado-198
    Rice-153
    A&M-149
    A&M-149
    Miss. Valley-148
    Iowa-131
    Okla-112
    Okie Lt.-109
    Providence-103
    KSU-63
    Texas-39
    Kansas-5



    Losses: (rpi)
    Okie Lt.-109
    Drake-104
    Northern Iowa-64
    Texas-39
    Michigan-11
    MIzzou-9
    Baylor-7
    Kansas-5


    still to play:
    T. Tech-320
    Okla-112
    KSU-63
    Mizzou-9
    Baylor-7

    just 3 wins against the top 100 in rpi and just two in the top 50. that's not good if the committee really does look at overall picture regardless of conference. hypothetically if we win the games we are favored in (tech, and oklahoma), we will have a record of 20-11 (10-8). but only 3 quality wins and two losses (bad) outside of the top rpi 100. unless we win one in the tourney, i'm not sure we get in. without that kansas win we don't have much of a case.

    guess we may have to steal one on the road or knock baylor off at home just to get in. would really help if oklahoma, okie lite, providence, and drake could sneak back up into the top 100.

    sure this is all hypothetical and has been talked about ad nauseum but what else do we have to talk about?

    The noncon portion was weak. We knew it would be and wanted to build some confidence, and wins, for this team. As improvement happens, the schedule will start to improve in difficulty. If we finish strong we will be in on what we have done in a major conference.

    We need a Required Weekly Thread forum. That said, yes, I'm going to be nervous on selection Sunday.


    I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

    You can also say that we have only lost to two teams that should not be in the tourney, according to rpi. Both on the road. So, we took care of business against who were expected to and have lost to those that were were expected to for the most part.

    Most all of the negative RPI effects of those are nulled by the fact that they were on the road. Half of them were against RPI top 15 teams. Northern iowa is the worst loss at home, and theyre just outside the top 50, and it was early.

    is this supposed to be some groundbreaking revelation? we all know this, we've been watching all season. that's why we're a 9 seed and not a 3 seed.

    everyone else who's trying to make the dance also has mediocre top100 records.

    Another negative basketball thread brought to you by theyork.

    Ideas for your next thread...
    -Why I'm so negative.
    -Should I jump?
    -Fred isn't that good looking.
    -I heard Royce hates kittens.
    -It's year two, why haven't we won a NC yet?

    Royce is a lion and loves kittens. Why are you spreading such lies?
