    RPI jump

    We jumped to 31, that 14 spots with our win over KSU!

    They only dropped 4 spots.

    College Basketball - Rankings - Rivals.com

    That should help seeding, hope the team breaks the top 25. ROAD DOGZ!


    I'm not trying to be difficult, it comes naturally....

    That's impressive. Just imagine what a good week this week might do for ISU.

    Many times this season this team has shown the talent to beat top 25 teams but not the consistency to be a top 25 team. I think we would need to beat both Mizzou and Baylor to break the top 25.

    Not that I want us to lose straight, but losing 3 straight wouldn't knock us down further than 40.

    Our SOS should be in the top 25 after our last 3-5 games. Hate to say "I told you so" but our fans here hating on our SOS early in the year were pretty blind.

    Agree to disagree, i think ISU has played consistent to be a top 25 team. 11-5 in the big 12 says alot

    Except for the fact that our non con SOS was very weak...we played two tournament teams non conference, that's not a challenging schedule at all.

    Also HFCS, our current SOS is 60. It won't go up all the way to the top 25.

    If you end up with a SOS in the top-40, your non-conference schedule was strong enough. As it has been said many times, with playing in the Big 12, there is little benefit to having a non-conference schedule more difficult than this year's.

    Oh I agree but it seemed like HFCS was trying to see our non con SOS was strong. It wasn't.

    Re:RPI jump

    Our non conference opponents went 8-2 and some teams ahead of us lost as well yesterday so that may have factored in.

    Re: RPI jump

    The more wins any of our non-conference opponents rack up the higher our RPI will climb too, 50% of the RPI formula is the opponents win percentage.

    Re: RPI jump

    Funny how the media wants to back up their rankings from the beginning of the season. They keep k state as high as possible and don't really want to rank us. Preseason ranking really do mean something, it means the media is behind you all year.
