It does speak to how bad the CCSU loss was... Inexcusable...
Not trying to pump up our win at all, but that UDel team is pretty damn good.

Well, the thing about playing a D3 team is that a win won't even show up on the record the selection committee sees. If the 0.1% chance of a Butler loss occurs, I'm sure they'll remember.

And this really is just a waste of time. It shows nothing about your team. I guess it's a nice opportunity for walk-ons to get significant minutes. And I wouldn't think your season ticket holders would be all that thrilled either.

Re: 11/27 A-10 Game

Butler scheduled this game in the middle of August. They lost a few games when they moved to the A10 (the Horizon League plays more conference games), and they had to scramble to find extra games. The A10 approved a waiver for them to play a non Division 1 game because they couldn't find any other reasonable games.

Also, playing a non Division 1 team is better than playing a sub 300 division 1 team. It doesn't bring down that strength of schedule because it isn't included in the RPI. It's only worse if you lose, but really, what are the odds of that?

I know you think you are a genius scheduler, but I will take two final four runs over impressing you. Dayton in the NCAA tourney is the real joke.

They will pile up a lot of wins in their conference schedule that will make up for the out of conference schedule. 6 games into the season when they are 0-6 they weigh you down, at the end of the season when they are 18-12, they don't weigh you down as much.

Heck Stephen F. Austin is #11 in the RPI right now and until a few days ago, Belmont was #1. That should tell you something about it right there.
Don't forget Butler is #6. It was the common talking point of UD fans around here that after the Xavier win, it was "laughable" to suggest Butler would end up in the top half of the A-10... and that Butler was just simply not that good.

They don't think Butler can finish 6th in the big, bad A-10 but it's reasonable to talk about RPI rankings 3 weeks into the season that has Butler 6th in the nation!

This discussion is starting earlier than ever this year. Other than Muddy being Muddy, who is touting the accuracy of RPI at any point in the season?

RPI isn't even measuring team quality, it's measuring your tourney resume. The better RPI teams typically have accomplished more. There's a fine, but important, line between the two. There are mediocre teams that cheat the system every year, same as any formula. Goodness, the often unwarranted love Wisconsin gets from KenPom's formula is legendary.

UD's resident moderator finds it "interesting" the teams predicted to finish near the top of the A-10 are near the top of the RPI standings 3 weeks into the season therefore inferring RPI being somewhat meaningful/accurate (with the obvious exception of Butler who Dayton fans don't think can win an A-10 game after X easily beat them yet at the Bulldogs are sitting at #6 in the country).

That's a good explanation and I'll accept it. I probably would have just accepted playing less than the maximum number of games, too, but that makes sense.

Probably from a financial standpoint, taking another home game is the only way to go.

I know Butler was playing backups a lot of the time and wasn't really motivated on defense, but Hanover exploited this defense in one of the same ways that Illinois did. Butler's front court does not defend the 3 well at all. If you have a 5 that can shoot the 3 you can get him some really good looks off the pick and pop.

It counts as a regular season game, so I would assume so.

I live less than an hour south of Hanover, PA, so that I knew. What I had to look up before making my "joke" was where Hanover College is located.
