The system is rigged against us. The big leagues feast on home games in the OOC schedule. Home court advantage is real and they know it. They aren't penalized for not traveling and have an inflated W-L record that they take back to conference and that's a problem. Some of those same leagues have to travel in baseball because of their weather, so they changed the rules to benefit them to where a road game is more valuable than a home game. It's the adjusted W-L record. Until we have something similar in basketball we are fighting a rigged system.

It's the "big boys" playground and they feel we are lucky to be let in at all. It's called collusion and last time I checked is illegal. Problem is these are government institutions so the government won't do anything about it.

Let's keep our fingers crossed for positive change to the selection process next year. As you probably know, these items were discussed recently in a meeting with selection committee representatives and all of the famous ratings systems (including Massey, Sagarin, etc.) to discuss adjustment or abandonment of the current RPI system the NCAA uses. Sagarin in particular stood up and addressed the need to adjust for home games versus road games and apparently even received a huge round of applause.
