I love it too, 'cause imo it's the very best ranking system, along with Ken Pom Villanova has held on to the #1 position most of the year. In the last month or so, when GU has been ranked #1 in both the AP and Coaches polls, Gonzaga was hanging around the 3rd or 4th position on BPI. Now that i see Gonzaga in the #1 place I feel more comfortable arguing that the ZAGS SHOULD BE THE TOP #1 SEED in the NCAA tournament.

From the days in 2003 (?) when we were the 3rd ranked team given a 6th seed in New Mexico, to ranked 1 but also top Kenpom and BPI.

What a trip.

I agree, unfortunately the committee seems to rely most heavily on the antiquated RPI, which has Gonzaga around 9th.

Sadly they use the RPI, which completely overrates SOS and doesn't focus on actually winning games. That system is way outdated but I think they also look at other things like KenPom in the room. Bottom line is if we win out, we are easily a #1 seed and most likely the overall #1 seed unless Kansas or UNC were to win out.
