    Have you seen our RPI?

    We are #4 in RPI right now, which would make us the last #1 seed if the tournament started today. I'm not saying that means we will be a #1, just that maybe we should all stop and smell the flowers.

    We're ISU. The committe would give us the number 2 seed somewhere in the California region if the tournament started today.

    I think you missed the part where they are expanding the NCAA brand overseas. We would be in the Balkans.

    Re: Have you seen our RPI?

    I hate to break it to you but the committee doesn't do the seeing based on RPI alone. It's one of the criteria's but there are other factors that go into it.

    Things like not losing to anyone you've played?

    Non-conference W/L and SOS in NC are huge.

    Honestly, I'd pass on a 2 seed, settle for a 3. I guess it's the bad Cyclone superstition coming out...

    Yes, those are both big factors. I'm not saying they won't be a number one seed. My point is, you can't just say ISU is 4th in RPI, therefore they are going to be a #1 seed. If a team has a RPI of 15, that doesn't mean they're guaranteed a 4 seed.

    There have been teams in recent history that have had RPI's in the 20's and missed the tournament completely. It just depends on other factors such as SOS, quality wins, road wins, how you perform in the non-conference and other things.

    I'll take any seed if it's in the St Louis or Milwaukee locations.

    we are not 1seed material. Not to be a downer, but I feel this team has the mentality that they are waiting for something good to happen vs. making it happen. Our scheme will rely on us shooting much better from 3 for us to have a sporting chance to compete for the conference title.

    Pretty sure top 40 RPI always makes it in recent history.

    Re: Have you seen our RPI?

    Lately the committee has been placing a big emphasis on the nonconference schedule. Its hurt us the last couple years but will help us this year.

    On a related note, here's a link to a composite ranking site which compiles 40 different ranking methods, including links to each if they have web sites.
