FWIW, I would say most Midwestern CFB fans would put UWM above ISU in basketball pedigree.

What? I have lived in Iowa, Wisconsin (including in Milwaukee), and Minnesota and haven't run across many (or any) people that would put UW-Milwaukee above Iowa State in basketball pedigree.

even if not in pedigree- last 10 years-
Iowa St- avg KP rating 52- with 1st 2 years being 124 and 113
Milwaukee- avg KP rating 178.5

Milwaukee's best year was 114.

Where the A10 again came up short.

There's time; the conference has largely challenged themselves well, but, yeah...you have to win these games, and you shouldn't be losing to Jax State if you're Richmond.

Maybe Duquesne had the right idea playing a cupcake non-conference...come into the conference season and pound into that part of the schedule and watch your numbers jump. The annual throw-down with Pitt looks like a very winnable game for them.
problem for Duquesne is the conference games won't matter as much.

looking at one of my favorite sites- RPI forecast- it uses Sagarin to project games and then show what RPI would look like.... A10 right now even before yesterday was projected to have 1 team in the top 55.

This is based on how many games? Sagarin is very clear about saying that his ratings are no where near reliable yet, and won't be until conference schedules start to kick in.

while true- it still just shows what's possible.

In KP already- A10 has had 5 unexpected losses already this year. Out of 37 total that we've seen so far this year nationwide. Those are the ones that kills your ratings.

Florida Gulf Coast is looking really good this year.

Beat Illinois State 98-87. Won at Siena by 33.

Dunk City gets the Shockers (my title pick) later on.

Five? So far I count the two Richmond losses and the Bona loss. I wouldn't categorize URI @ Nevada or St. Joe's @ Toledo as especially surprising.

I think the A-10 might have some trouble reaching their usual at-large goal, especially now that EC Matthews is going to miss the next 4-6 weeks for Rhode Island with a fractured wrist. But I think their start is about what most people would have expected, Richmond's hard-left turn into oblivion excepted.
