    Wyoming just beat UNLV, should help our RPI a bit.

    That game is the tipping point on how our season is evaluated. If we don't play our absolute worst possible game that night, we're 17-6 and solidly on the bubble with a good RPI.

    I knew it was a bad loss at the time, but with CSU's RPI up to around 20th now, it's just a killer. Wyoming's win over UNLV (Rebs are RPI #7) is great, so that should be a nice boost. Maryland led UNC for much of the game today, but fell short at the end. ****.

    Heading into tonight, we were around 80th. Hopefully this win can give us somewhat of a boost. Oregon was around 78th. The Cal game will be the biggest of the season, with the Bears being an opportunity for an RPI-top 50 win. Washington is moving up, so hopefully that can turn into one for us as well.

    Let's just keep piling up these wins and see what happens.

    Updated from this weekend.


    Wyoming is slipping. W-Mich and Tx Southern are real anomolies. AF continues to help out (a bit).

    That's a beautiful chart if I must say so myself. Hopefully we win the conference tournament and help your resume even more.

    I never want to play DII opponents ever again. I realize that our location doesn't exactly provide us with easy scheduling like you'll find in other regions where power conference schools often have a bunch of mid-majors nearby, but being 17-9 instead of 19-9 in the RPI right now sucks. Sure, two more wins over teams ranked, say, 123rd and 231st wouldn't be a huge difference in our current positioning, but we'd be around 10 spots higher in the RPI and that could be the crucial tipping point between NIT and NCAA (at least one of these years)

    I would say our 3rd worst game, I would put the two Stanford games ahead of the CSU game. Mostly in comparison to how they were playing going into and coming out of the two stanford games, they really sucked it up those two games. At CSU, we werent playing very good ball going into there, but yes we should have won rather easily.

    OK, I SWORE that New Orleans counted as a D1 opponent in RPI this year because they were in the process of moving down. Was I wrong on that? If so, then yeah, that was a bad game to schedule.

    As for the Ft. Lewis game, I have zero problems with that one. We had a limited amount of time to schedule a game before the PR Tipoff, and we had to have a tune-up before Wichita State to see how everyone responded when the lights were on. Ft. Lewis provided that. In cases like that, I'm fine with DII games. Other than that though, I completely agree with you.

    if we had went to Syracuse, Duke and Kentucky and lost there our record would be 16-12, but our RPI would probably be around 25.

    Boyle said that he's going to strengthen our OOC schedule. There are good RPI and attendance reasons to do this.

    We can open with a local D2, but that has to be it (and I'd rather not).

    I want to see a Top 50 RPI non-conference schedule as our next step.
