    RPI dropped after yesterday

    RPI actually dropped to 51 after our victory yesterday. Still need to find a couple more wins to feel fully comfortable.

    Re: RPI dropped after yesterday

    There's kind of a big game on Monday night. I think if we win that one it should help.

    Agree, but if KU wins, we need to find a couple more still. We are in a good spot. Just saying it isn't a slam dunk just yet.

    Did this have to do with other team losses? I.e. herky ******** the bed?


    As far as depth goes though, the combination of White, Woodbury, Olaseni, Basabe, and Uthoff is much better than Niang, Ejim, Edozie, Gibson. Not because of the top 2, but because of the next 2 or 3. -DeanVogs

    I would assume. Not sure who else wet the bed besides Iowa though. Baylor lost, but @ OU that didnt' really change their RPI.

    Re: RPI dropped after yesterday

    This just shows you how much bad teams hurt the RPI. We would have been better off without playing TCU and TT this year. It also shows you the pile of teams similar to ISU.

    And other teams winning and shuffling the order. It's all relative. Not concerned.

    West Virginia fell out of the top 100, Baylor lost again, and they now account for 2/5 of our top 100 wins. Iowa and Texas lost again also.

    We should be concerned if RPI goes above 55. Few teams make it above 55 since there are so few truly at large open slots.

    That said, a loss Monday might even let our RPI go down below 51.

    JMO, but we are not in a good spot. Had we not peed down our legs 4 or 5 times in close games, we would be sitting very well. As it is, we are in the tough spot of needing to upset two top-20 teams and win at least one game on the road.

    Re: RPI dropped after yesterday

    Iowa still barely in top 100, WVU dropped out. I think Iowa will finish top 100, not WVU though, their schedule is ridiculous down the stretch.

    Re: RPI dropped after yesterday

    I think our rpi will go up tomorrow even if we lose.

    Exactly. Even going 2-2 will probably increase our RPI. The worst team we have to play yet is on the road.

    If we win out at home, we are pretty much in. You're overstating how much needs to be done. And beating OSU at home would not be an upset.
