A win over Syracuse would be a huge boost.

Only our wins over Georgetown and Notre Dame look good for RPI purposes. Villanova and Pitt are struggling, although I expect Villanova to get better as the year moves along. Pitt looks lost. Oklahoma had a nice win over K-State yesterday, but other than that our other OOC opponents, including Xavier, have done nothing to impress. The loss to Marshall will not kill UC, but the loss to Presbyterian may keep us out of the NCAA tourney unless we can finish 11-7 in the BEast.

well that means they could finish 7-6 and be 11-7

UC finishes 11-7, 21-10 overall, and they are a lock for the NCAA's. Just playing Syracuse will do wonders for their RPI.

We'll see. If UC goes 11-7, 21-10 they'll likely have an RPI in 80s. If they made the tournament they would be the lowest ranked at large RPI team to ever get in. Last year the selection committee really penalized teams for their poor non-conference schedules (See Colorado, Virginia Tech, and Alabama). Alabama won the SEC West by 3 games and didn't make the tourney while a Georgia team they beat twice including in the conference tournament got in...both teams basically had equal quality wins.

Maybe UC would get in, given your scenario, but I would not feel good about it. Hopefully they finish in the top 4 in the Big East and this won't be an issue other than seeding.

11-7 and I don't care if the RPI is over 100. Lead pipe lock. Only question would be the seed.

It would be unprecedented and completely against the message the committee sent to teams last year. Not saying you are wrong, just saying that I would be really worried given that scenario.

Something wrong with the rpi, IMHO. I don't care about the weak OOC schedule. The Big East alone should jack it up higher than that.


RE: UC 110 in RPI - SuperFlyBCat - 01-15-2012 06:23 PM

We have in the RPI #1 Cuse, #4 UConn and #14 WVU in out next 3 games.
