    Making the Tournament and RPI

    RealTimeRPI.com Men's College Basketball Rating Percentage Index (RPI) Ratings - A leading sports ratings and resources community on the Internet

    We currently stand at 53 in RPI. Since the tournament was expanded to 68 teams, all but two teams that were in the top 60 of RPI from a major conference made it into the tournament, per Brent Blum.

    "Since the tourney expanded to 68 teams, every school from a power conference (Big East, B1G, Big 12, ACC, SEC, PAC-12) that finished in the top 55 of the RPI made the dance. Boston College (No. 58 in RPI in 2012) and Mississippi State (No. 56 in 2011) were the only two schools in the top 60 of the RPI from a power conference that didn't get a ticket over the last two years."

    Currently, four Big 12 teams, KU, OU, PK, and OSU, are in the top 26 RPI. They are all locks for the tournament at this point barring epic collapses. Iowa State has wins over two of those teams, and will most likely get a win over Okie State at home on Senior Day, and hopefully a win over Kansas.

    Iowa State and Baylor are the only two Big 12 teams on the bubble now. If both can stay in the RPI top 60, and have enough quality wins over the top four teams in the Big 12, both will make the tournament.

    Re: Making the Tournament and RPI

    We may get a play in game by not winning on the road again since some of our competition like Creighton is also losing. Colorado and Colorado State are both ahead of us. The Zags are #12. Nebby is #97. TT has fallen to #215.

    Re: Making the Tournament and RPI

    I would like us to sweep at home so at least we beat everyone in the league once.

    My apologies, I forgot we haven't beat Kansas at home yet. So we have two, but we will have four.

    Give it a couple of weeks.


    I noticed that during the low periods of my life, when I was suffering from anguish, sorrow or defeat, I could see only one set of footprints, so I said to the Lord,
    “You promised me Lord, that if I followed you, you would walk with me always. During the most trying periods of my life there has only been one set of footprints in the sand. Why, when I needed you most, have you not been there for me?”
    “Because,” says the Lord, “Sandpeople always ride single-file, to hide their numbers.”

    What the hell are you talking about?! Play-in game?! Those games are for winners of smaller conferences. Not ISU....Good Lord, really?! District Clone, is this you in disguise? Nobody could say anything more stupid than you. With all your Tony Robbins crap and how you are smarter than everyone else on this board. You are a sports moron, we are just an average team in an average conference. We suck! Got it?! You are so annoying. This team doesn't have the IQ nor the toughness to make it. Kind of like you.

    Re: Making the Tournament and RPI

    ESPN has ISU still #40 in their BPI, which may be more accurate than the RPI

    In his defense, unless you are on here all the time and know the personalities of the users it's hard to tell if it's a joke. Even though losing to TCU is unlikely, with all the doomsday threads I wouldn't be surprised if somebody is really predicting that.

    I know this is sarcasm, but unfortunately, even beating TCU is still going to drop our RPI a little. We sure as hell better not lose to them.
