Pitino said he doesn't want to play us and Huggins hates cincy so I would bet those won't happen. Texas I have no idea

So I just played around with RPI Wizard a little to figure out what our SOS for next year approximately looks like at the moment. I had to use last year's schedule by removing/adding games (it maxes you out at 5 games).

This past year, we had an overall SOS of 63.

I removed:
Rhode Island, Penn St, Iowa St, Butler, and Marshall (our 5 best OOC games, excluding Xavier)

I added:
@ UCLA, Iowa (neutral), vs Miss. St, vs Wichita, @ Wichita.

Our RPI SOS went up from 63 to 52.

Nice little bump there. Keep in mind that it doesn't sound like we're done adding good teams to the schedule, so this should only go up from here. I left on all those bottom-feeders that we played last year in Nov and Dec, and we don't really know if they'll all still be on the schedule.

Add one more good team, and we may bump up to 45 or so. Two more, and we should be in the 30s.

Semi with SMU will be as big of a domino to that SOS as I can imagine one player having in a conference. SMU with him, is a similar team, SMU without him is a team 10-30 spots lower.
