View Full Version : RPI help -- Ok. State and SMC

03-04-2009, 11:38 PM
With tonight's results -- Jerry Palm's www.collegerpi.com now has Oklahoma State in the Top 25 RPI (at 25) AND St. Mary's in the Top 50 (at 50).

Thus, as of tonight -- GU has three wins over Top 25 (Tennessee was the other 2) and 2 additonal wins over Top 50.

Tonight's update of "projected" RPI has SMC finishing at 48.

Nice find Gozags. Based off the RPI ratings, I really hope we face SMC in the Finals. It only benefits both teams come Selection Sunday.

Honestly, our Tournament resume is shaping up to be overqualified for a 6 or 7 seed, IMO. If we win our conference Tourney by beating St. Mary's(a Top-50 team a third time), I could easily see us snag a 5 seed and possibly be considered for a "protected" 4 seed. I'm basing this assumption off previous seedings the Zags have received. For example, last year we received an at-large birth as a 7 seed. We lost 7 games including the WCC Tourney and our only quality(Top-25) win was vs UConn. This year, the Zags have two fewer losses thus far and at least 3 wins vs Top-25 and many more(at least 5) vs Top-50. Lastly, the other teams being considered for a 6-7 seeds are middle of the pack BCS teams who have at least 3-4 more L's than we do. Its not a stretch to be thinking about a higher seed than originally thought.

If we win the WCC tourney, I'd be shocked if we don't get a 4 seed. Then again, most years I'm shocked with our seed.

Win out!

Go Zags!!

It's worth reminding people that a huge SEC game takes place this evening between Tennessee and South Carolina. It could decide the champ of the SEC East. The game starts at 4pm PDT, and can be seen on ESPN.

Oklahoma State's next game is at Oklahoma on Saturday.

The Terps had Wake Forest beat. They coughed up a fur ball.

Tennessee played their best game of the year tonight. I haven't seen them play defense like that this whole year. Great road victory. They torched the Gamecocks in the 2nd half.

Best I've seen the Vols play since they creamed Georgetown in Orlando.

Arizona, Idaho and Texas Southern remain tonight.
