I suspect that the Bulldogs will be favored in this one.

Re: 11/27 A-10 Game

Why is Butler scheduling a D3 team? This makes no sense to me.

Makes no sense. You gain nothing with a win and total disaster if you lose.

Hey, it looks like the Bonnies, along with Temple, VCU, Charlotte, and maybe UMass are on the bubble!

I would assume Berlin, PA. The original German settlers in Pennsylvania had no creativity with their town names.

I am so glad we are starting to see RPI rankings less than a month into the season.

Right, 95. I think it's about time for the RPI thread to start up, don't you?

Re: 11/27 A-10 Game

Embarrassing for any A10 team to have a DIII team on the regular season schedule. There are dozens and dozens of D1 teams within 200 miles of Butler. Schedule one. Preferably one that can win 15 or more games, but any D1 team will do.

The only good thing is that a loss won't hurt the league, because these games don't count in the RPI. Of course, the guaranteed win won't help, either.

Re: 11/27 A-10 Game


Muddy's Observations

(1) There are presently 10 Atlantic 10 teams with RPI Rankings in the Top 75. Outstanding, so far.

(2) There are 4 posts on this thread about pretzels.

(3) xu95 makes a sarcastic reply about the A10 Basketball post, but is happy with the 'pretzel' posts. Not surprising.

(4) The Butler-Hanover game does not count in the RPI Rankings because Hanover is a Division III team.

(5) The RPI Rankings augment the W-L Records and provide additional information.

(6) EXAMPLE # 1: Charlotte's 6-0 record, combined with an RPI Ranking of # 57 indicates that Charlotte's 6-0 record has been compiled against an easy schedule so far.

(7) EXAMPLE # 2: La Salles's 3-1 record, combined with an RPI Ranking of # 137 indicates that La Salles's 3-1 record has been compiled against a rubbish schedule so far.

(8) EXAMPLE # 3: Butler's 3-2 record, combined with an RPI Ranking of # 6 indicates that Butler's 3-2 record record has been compiled against an extremely difficult schedule so far.
