    RPI only went up 2 spots with win

    Can't believe it didn't go up more. We were 53 going in and now we are 51 with the win. I figured it would get to the mid 40s with a win in this game.

    Let's win at WVU....don't want to leave any doubt about where we belong!

    Even if we lose to WVU and lose the first game of the big 12 tourney, i dont see how we can be left out now

    We're in, but I feel really good about going to WVU now, and I'm sure the guys want another shot at OU too

    It usually doesn't move too much on a weekday (not as many games being played as a Saturday), especially when it's a home win.

    At this point we have to be cautious about winning ourselves into the 8/9 game.

    Screw that. If we're a 8 or 9 seed that means no sweating on Selection Sunday. I'll take that over an 11 seed and pacing around all day.

    If you're comparing to how far up Iowa's has jumped with their last couple wins (or any team sub-58ish RPI), it's because the teams are much more spaced out in terms of RPI score from spots 60 to 50 then other ranges.

    Tougher to move up through the 50s.

    Re: RPI only went up 2 spots with win

    Only about a .0100 from 91 to 78 for instance, yet, according to liverpi.com Oregon at 50 is roughly the same distance ahead of Bucknell at 54.

    It will likely be slow climbing for ISU from here.

    Not to mention it is probably the weakest 1 seed group ever. I normally would take any seed over 8/9 below 14, but not this year. I'm fine with 8/9 this year.

    So down to 50.5? Or up to 51.5?


    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 prefer the guys to try and win every game they play.

    Not to mention, I see very few teams that we couldn't beat if we played our best ball. That wasn't the case last year.

    We are in I think at this point. I would love another win though to get further away from the play in games.
