After tonight's loss X will drop significantly from #30.

It's gotta be killing Muddy he proclaimed he will not make anymore RPI updates until January 1 after UD's loss to #347 Weber St

St. Bonaventure Bonnies - RPI Breakdown (CBS Sports)


The Bonnies' best win of the season so far is against RPI # 193 Niagara.

Congratulations on that.





We won all the games we were supposed to (based on early season volatile RPI), and lost to two teams who may end up being decent. Although I'd love to be 7-0 with wins over Indiana, Duke, Kentucky and Weber State (all the powerhouses), we needed an easier OOC schedule to figure out the team post-Nicholson.

Dayton is 55 thousandths of a point better than we are. I, for one, welcome our new Flyer overlords.

I like what I see from Xavier thus far, and am delighted with the record which stands in stark contrast to all the preseason pundits who were sure Xavier would be lucky to win 10 or 11 games for the season.

If Xavier can avoid injuries, and continue to improve the team could be a bubble team before you know it.

Contrary to popular belief, the RPI of your opponents matter FAR, FAR LESS than their overall win percentage.

50% of your RPI is your team's SOS. Your SOS is made up of about 900-1000 total games.
25% of your RPI is your Opponents SOS. Your Opp SOS is made up of about 28000 to 31000 games.


ALL THAT MATTERS IS WINNING NON-CONFERENCE GAMES. We want teams in the bottom half of the league to WIN OOC GAMES (most importantly) and if they're beating GOOD TEAMS, it's a bonus. But a win over team #343 is better for the A-10 as a whole than a loss to #1.

Wow, things are not as bad for UMass as I thought. They're more or less exactly where they ended up the regular season last year.

Well, that's the sticking point, right? Xavier has very little margin for error. I do think the Vandy loss was an aberration, an off night for multiple starters. But an injury or two and those early season predictions are not too far off.

I certainly hope not though. I'm a fan of the Xavier program, despite some of the more obnoxious X fans on here. A strong Xavier team is good for the league and good for putting some of the more elitist BCS programs in their place. Plus, I love watching Cincinnati lose, so if nothing else win that game and help bring their early season hype-fest crashing down.
