RE: UC 110 in RPI
He had us as one of the last four in last week too. We go out and beat Georgetown on the road and beat Nova and we are still one of the last four in in his bracket. What an "expert" he is.

He's actually pretty good at his job.

Get to 21 wins before MSG and we deserve it. Come up short, probably don't regardless of RPI or Joe Lunardi's opinion.

RE: UC 110 in RPI
He had us in the last 4 in just before our loss to St. Johns @ home. That loss, deservingly, dropped us out of his bracket. The next two win got us back in. Given that our RPI is still 100+, I find it hard to get upset with anyone willing to put us in the field at this point.

Making unverifiable "predictions?"

RE: UC 110 in RPI
All you have to do is look at the numbers and the committee's history. Mark does a good job of it every year. It takes time, but it involves more than just throwing darts at the board.

RE: UC 110 in RPI
He adjusts through out the year, but his predictions at the end of the season, are pretty accurate. He stuck up for us at the end of last season though. People weren't sure if we'd be in or not and he was on ESPN right before.. I want to say the providence game? The host asked him if what difference the game would make, would it decide if we got in and he replied It would be the difference between a single digit seed and a double digit seed.

Touching, I know lol
At any rate, just keep clawing out victories.
That's all they can do anyway.

It's not difficult at all to get all but, say, 5 teams right. Everyone single talking head can do that (they also all inflate their accuracy by including the teams that got auto bids in their tallies - they say they got 66 of 68 right, when it's actually only 35 of 37). So it just comes down to a few picks. He missed 3 teams last year, and got 30 of them in their right seed - less than half.

But at least he can be judged on his end of season bracket (not that anyone bothers to - he's ESPN's expert of course!). This midyear stuff is just total guessing. It's pointless to look at.

With the next 3 games against teams in the top 15 of the rpi, surely UC will move up.
