I don’t believe that to be the case. In March 2015, Colorado State was 27-6 with an RPI of 29. They were not selected for the Big Dance. Their KenPom was 68. KenPom and other non-RPI rankings likely played a factor is the committee’s decision not to select Colorado State.

Colorado State played South Dakota State in the NIT (I believe) and lost by 10. Their final KenPom ranking was 72.

That’s just one example of when the committee considered more than just the RPI. I suspect that is increasingly the case as coaches make the case that the RPI is too primitive, and with the availability of more robust ranking systems.

Yeah because it was Colorado State. Well known fact that the committee goes back and forth betwweeen RPI and other factors to justify leaving non power conference schools out. There needs to be one set of criteria instead of multiple lists, so the committee can be held accountable.

If there was one system, we wouldn’t need a committee.

I do wonder if they look at the Massey Composite.

https://www.mratings.com/cb/compare.htm

A week ago UAB’s ranking varied from 77 to 226.

Exactly. If there was a set system, there would be no need for a committee (see BCS). A committee allows for non-statistical factors to come into play (injuries, locale, time of year/season, ejections leading to a loss, etc.)

If CUSA sucks before conference play then CUSA teams playing other CUSA teams would cause increased suckage in any overall ratings system.

WKU jumped ahead of MTSU and with their top 100 guy now eligible (he had 16 sat.) they might be considered a favorite to win the league.

UAB should be in the conversation. It would help if William Lee would start producing.

I think I saw a tweet that had kenpom predicting WKU & MTSU & ODU all going 14-4 and UAB 12-6.

I would hope we can get by with no more than 4-5 losses. Not 6. I see 3 more likely losses with a possible 4th. But we often have 1-2 WTF losses.

There is absolutely no reason for us to not be in the top 4.

RE: KenPom.com Update
I watched him pretty closely both games this week. He is contributing in other ways, other than offensively. He is playing good defense and looks engages. We didn't need him to put up a bunch of shots. I'm starting to come around to think that it bodes better for the future with him taking a reduced role offensively, and his shots going to Bryant and Darling. It was a problem when Cokley was getting into foul trouble. We needed Lee to step up, but now Coke is playing smarter and staying out of foul trouble.

I agree on everything you posted. Also I am glad that Coach Ehsan is playing Lavender, Gueye, and Smallwood more in order to lessen the chances of Cokley or Lee getting into foul trouble and to provide more manpower for defense down the stretch.

It’s easier to play those guys in blowouts. I’m willing to bet you will be herb harrisoning about Gueye after the next close game we play in.
