For how much everyone has dogged our out-of-conference scheduling and our SOS, when you look at things in comparison to others, we really aren't that bad. As you can see below, we've got an overall rank of 124 and we are 6th overall in our conference. The Hawks are wwwaaayyy worse too as theirs is a measely 225 our of 347 total teams.

So, while our SOS isn't great, I wouldn't call it terrible at all either. Personally, I don't want a terrible SOS, but I also don't want to be in the top 25 either where we get beat to shreds before conference time. From an RPI perspective, I think anywhere in the top 50-125 range isn't a bad place to be. So overall come tournament time, while I don't think our SOS will help us tremendously when they are comparing teams, I also don't think it will hurt us either.
