NCAA official version of the rpi. This is what they now use for rpi in the selection process

I don't think 3 SoCon teams ahead of us passes the sniff test.

Felt the need to bump this given the way the year is wrapping up.

19 19 Wofford SoCon 24-4 9-3 0-0 12-1 3-0
48 48 Furman SoCon 22-6 9-4 0-0 10-2 3-0
61 61 UNC Greensboro SoCon 24-5 9-4 1-0 12-1 2-0
65 67 ETSU SoCon 22-8 8-6 2-0 10-2 2-0

We sit at 115!

The SOCON has figured out a way to game the NET system.
Wofford- win over USC which looks much better now than it did in December.
Furman - terrific win over Nova and solid win over Loyola
UNCG- no real shiny non conference wins. Perhaps La Tech, Radford
ETSU - Sam Houston St? Ga Southern?


Does Wofford deserve an NCAA bid? At this point I would say anyone who goes undefeated in conference likely does.
Will Furman get an at Large?
How many NIT bids do they get?

At this point the way it looks is that the SOCON teams do not get punished for playing non D1's while we get killed for playing low end D1's. It has also helped immensely that there is a critical mass of teams that have gotten better. The lack of it is killing the CAA.

The choice is clear. I know gofer will spontaneously combust but if the SOCON gets rewarded for their scheduling while we get punished(lets say no NIT bid). Then we need to take notice.

Wofford & CofC should both just win their tournaments & move on to the dance w/o discussion.

The RPI was flawed in itself. The NET is awful and the NCAA should be embarrassed that they have this system in place. Outside of wofford we are much better than furman uncg and anybody else in the Socon

Wofford gets a 7th. Which is better than the 99 CofC team which had a superior record and far better non con wins.(UNC, UMASs, Mason). Though a less friendly environment to mids.

Still the rest of the SO ON got shutout which means that saw through the magic math in their inflated NET scores.
