    Anyone notice our MBB RPI jumped up?

    Just curious if anyone else noticed how much our RPI has jumped this week as we haven't played a single game. While I know it doesn't matter a ton at this point, I find it interesting that we've been hovering in the 60-65 range for quite a few weeks now, but today was the first day I noticed that we've jumped all the way to 49.

    While RPI isn't the be-all-end-all, what it does tell me is that our non-conference schedule wasn't as bad as we thought compared to others and really shouldn't hurt us come tournament time. It also tells me that if we come into conference play with a top 50 RPI, then if we can finish above the .500 mark in conference games without a bad loss to the likes of Tech or TCU, then I think we should be in.

    TTech's 286 is great stuff. Like football like basketball

    If you ask the basketball analysts outside the state of Iowa I think you would be surprised to hear their responses. Iowa was pegged as a preseason top 5 team by one ESPN analyst and is ranked in the vast, vast majority of preseason top 25 polls

    Re: Anyone notice our MBB RPI jumped up?

    Hard to get excited about the team's prospects yet as they've failed every tough test so far. I wouldn't be surprised at all if they put it all together and make the NCAA tourney. Unfortunately at this point it wouldn't surprise me if they fall apart in a Big 12 either

    I'd definitely agree with this statement too. We are definitely nearing a breaking point where we truly find what we are made of, similar to last season.

    Re: Anyone notice our MBB RPI jumped up?

    the perception vs reality of kstate last year and this year has really intrigued me. Their preseason picks, poll rankings, seeding last year...it's all a little high for what they actually accomplished in their little run and ignores how none of it is left at this point. I'm not saying they suck, but they've been equal or worse than ISU for two seasons now looking just at the wins and losses, yet they're propped up higher than ISU by voters, bloggers, selection committee, etc...everything but data. It's not like they've been any better than ISU during the history of the Big 12, probably worse.

    Am I missing something about Oklahoma's SOS being #34?

    I too get tired of seeing them ranked while we remain unranked but have a better record against THE exact same competition last year. This year at least they beat a highly ranked Florida

    They got stomped yesterday, no doubt, but they did almost beat Indiana at home last week.

    KSU looked better against OSU on Saturday than we have looked all year.

    I'll give them the benefit of the doubt this year. I can at least see why they're ranked after the Florida win. Last year I agree, they simply didn't deserve all the hype they got however.

    I could easily see us finishing better than KSU this year as well.

    This is probably true, but we have had zero opportunities to play against a good opponent in Hilton this year.
