CBS has it at 67,77,93 and 106 The amazing thing to me is that our SOS has risen as well. Sad that we have to play the MAC West over the next few weeks.

I know, that will drag everything down
When in doubt, blame everything on a directional michigan school!

Yeah, I know I wish the MAC West Schools would allocate more of their resources to basketball. The MAC at one time regularly won games in the NCAA Tournament. I hope the confrence can get back to that.

I'll update this tonight. Would you guys like a thread like this updated after each game? If so I can keep on it, and maybe the mods could sticky it if enough people wanted it.

Updated as of last night's games. Can't believe the MAC is still 16th with pretty much 4 top 100 teams. The West is brutal.

I crunched some Rpi numbers earlier this week, if the MAC East were its own conference, it'd be ranked 12th, between 11th PAC-12 and C-USA. The west would be around 25th near the Southland. I'm sure this has shifted more with the East going 5-1 in the first round.

Updated as of this minute. Interesting that our OOC RPI is 95. That means our RPI in conference has to be around 40 or better. Buffalo dropped I think 7 spots afetr beating NIU, which stinks that we still have to play them.

That stinks. It's bad enough when you have bad losses, but this shows you can also have bad wins.

That's the reason why the OOC schedule is so important. It's the only part of the scheduling we can control right now to raise our national profile.

Didn't want to start a new thread, but thought this was interesting. I was watching Middle Tennessee play and they were discussing their chances of an at large bid. They threw up a graphic regarding their quality wins. It didn't include Akron, but did include two teams with RPI's 40 and 50 points below us (Loyola of Marymount and UCLA). I know ESPN isn't the selection committee, but it goes along with what I have always said about RPI is only used to get mid level "BCS" schools in and keeping mid majors out.

During a recent game on ESPN they said that the best win for the entire CAA was VCU's win over Akron.

I think you're thinking of the Bracketbuster selection show, because I heard that there. Unless it happened twice, which is even better. :thumb:
