All of the guessing games could be taken out by metrics. But that is NOT how the committee wants to do things. Why? Money. March Madness will be MUCH more fun without team or conference bias.

Warren Nolan has them projected in the high 20's RPI end of season. They may be higher than any other team than WSU (that we either beat or can beat)...but after WSU lost to SMU...who knows.

Buffalo is our best win RPI. I don't think I need to emphasize the point we need WSU to keep winning as well as teams like Houston and SMU.

I'm not quite sold on this idea. We were around #7 as a conference in OOC and that is probably where we landed last year. We are top heavy with two teams just like last year. The middle of the...
