Re: A10 Power Rankings - ESPN

Yikes... Umass at 11 only 2 spots above my Dukes. Didnt expect that. Charlotte at 5 is a surprise based on preseason predictions. After seeing a bit of VCU tonight they look pretty darn good.

Not surprising at all. Umass has looked less than stellar so far, and if they don't find some rhythm soon, they are going to drop even more.

Re: A10 Power Rankings - ESPN

The quality of play from 7-14 is pretty strong. I dont think URI is an automatic loss in A-10 play, and if Fordham can get a healthy Gaston they won't be either...Love the depth at the bottom

If Richmond is truly 10th best, then this conference is scary good.

Re: A10 Power Rankings - ESPN

How about the number 9 team with an RPI of 38 and a 6-1 record...


Charlotte is good but not number 5.. They need to start playing good teams first

Re: A10 Power Rankings - ESPN

This league has no elite teams though. There are no teams that should be top 15 in the country. What we have is a bunch of solid programs in the 25-65 range. I think that is a strength but as the season goes on and no one is ranked it will not help the league's publicity. IF VCU, Butler and Temple could get ranked it would do wonders for publicity this year.

Nice to have only 4 teams over 150 in RPI. Six teams between 20 and 68 in RPI.

I also think Duquesne will finish with and RPI just under 150.

The road win at Davidson was good. But even with that and my green-tinted glasses, 5 does seem high. I'd put the Niners around 7 - 9, with the potential to move up quickly if they keep winning.

It does say something that they have yet to drop a game against even mediocre teams. Most teams have a letdown at some point (CCSU, Weber St., Vanderbilt, etc.). So it is worth something to sail through an easy schedule.

Re: A10 Power Rankings - ESPN

No question. Charlotte deserves props to be at 8-0. I wouldn't have a problem if they were ranked higher than 5th right now, as it's no small feat to beat everyone you're "supposed to" beat early in the season.

Excuse me but Weber St is projected better in the RPI than every team Charlotte has played this year. I can understand why some peple don't like Muddy but his X detractors are not a good source for info either.

Weber St was a bad loss cause it was at home, but Weber St isn't going to be an RPI killer at the end of the year. They were picked Top 2 in their conf and they win 27 games last year.

Re: A10 Power Rankings - ESPN

I think power rankings should be wieghted more on what the team has done so far and their most recent games rather than on where they are projected to finish. Charlotte at 5 is fine with me and I agree that a little higher would not bother me either.

Yea, we need to beat the Weber States, the Vanderbilts, and the Pacifics before we can be ranked that high.

I agree with this. I don't think Charlotte will finish top 5 but hard to have them lower then that right now.
