True. But unless the mids adjust their games as the goal posts are moved, they can expect to be left behind permanently.

But it's not "moving the goalposts" to not select (or highly seed) teams with glittery records that have demonstrably weak schedules. So it's not "gaming" the system to insist that teams schedule decent OOC teams, nor to give them a chance to play and beat better in-confence teams.

Of interest:

Sun Belt scraps 'pod' plan to revamp scheduling

The Sun Belt Conference has scrapped its plans to introduce a new "pod" scheduling system, citing a desire to take more time to study the NET rankings -- which were utilized for the first time by the NCAA tournament selection committee last season -- and their impact on the league's postseason aspirations.

In the NET rankings last season, Georgia State and Georgia Southern, the Sun Belt's best teams, were ranked 126th and 128th in the NET. Per teamrankings.com, Georgia State and Georgia Southern would have had rankings of 50th and 78th under the old RPI system.

Displeased with the discrepancy between the league's standing in the RPI versus the NET, the league may consider a minimum NET "threshold" for its members' nonconference schedules to counter the change.

The problem is that teams don't do the same every year.
The Sun Belt was 17th in the Conference NET and Conference RPI.
Making the last few conference games depend on the standings doesn't make sense for the CAA because everybody can play everybody twice. With 14 in Conference USA, and 12 in the Sun Belt, double round-robin isn't possible.

C-USA men's basketball to test ‘bonus play’ pod format again

So Pod Scheduling will be tried another year

It appears that the coaches were against it (and that not much of anything at CUSA is going well either)
