New emphasis for road wins
So they are changing the rules again on how to rate teams, this time changing the shares given to quality road games. Quality home games are now considered top 30 rpi, quality neutral games are considered top 50 rpi and quality road games are considered top 75.

Just another way to make the Syracuse's who lost a lot of games finds an easier way in. Since the threshold is still tight it really will only boost major conferences ability to suck up at large bids. Now 2 wins in 10 tries on the road against high ranked teams will give them boosts for when they win several at home. Not surprised but just another hurdle for anyone who isnt in a power conference.

However the new rules would have made Monmouth and Drexel into the Tourney right?

Possibly, but bad losses still would have knocked each out, as the moving target is not made to benefit mid majors

Woohoo! A decade too late, although would only have given us 4, so still probably snubbed.
