Would you take this resume over Alabama? All numbers coming from CBS.
RPI = 31
non conf SOS = 122
VS top 50 = 1-3
VS top 100 = 4-4
record vs +100 = 22-2
RPI = 63
non conf SOS = 82
VS top 50 = 1-4
VS top 100 = 7-7
VS +100 = 12-4
yep. i see a better rpi and fewer bad losses. everything else is virtually the same, slightly worse sos, but not that much worse.
what is conf records and conf rpi's? and overall records?
Overall record is in the op. SOS is a big difference, but overall with the close numbers I'd have to see both teams, and see if they pass the "eye" test.
Believe half of what you see, and none of what you hear.
overall record isn't in op. bama is 20-11, that is nowhere in op.
sos isn't that big a difference, and that's only non-conf sos anyway. what about conf sos? you can't just ignore that.
hell, that's one of the biggest things sec people talk about with regards to football. we don't need a strong non-conf sos, we played a tougher overall sos because we play in the sec. works same for bball.
and with their rpi, i'd guess they play in a much tougher conf.
not meaning to rant at you, pc.
Vs top 100 and vs 100+ should add up to the teams record. If it doesn't. OP did it wrong.
The other team is St. Mary's.
Their conference SOS is 138. Their overall SOS is 96. Not sure how that happens when both of their SOS's seperate are over 100, but oh well. Their best win is vs Creighton ranked 25. Their next best wins are a sweep over BYU ranked 68. The only other games they played against the top 50 are their 3 games vs Gonzaga.
Compared to us who have a best win vs Kentucky at 50, but 2 wins better than their BYU wins vs Nova and Tenn inside top 55.
And no Jim Folsom the record vs the +100 is not a good thing for them. That means games against not very good teams. They played a boat load of them.
Now I'm not saying we deserve to be in over these guys, but for them to be consider a 10 seed by Palm and Lunardi is a bit ridiculous to me.
It does add up. We have one game vs West Alabama that doesn't really count so we are at 19 wins that count.
Here is another.
RPI = 54
non cons SOS = 254
SOS = 110
vs top 50 = 3-5
vs 51-100 = 4-2
vs +100 = 16-1
RPI = 55
non conf SOS = 42
SOS = 42
vs top 50 = 4-4
vs 51-100 = 5-5
vs +100 = 10-2
Who would you take the first or second team?
The resume that I really don't get that most people have ahead of us is Virginia. They have a 66 RPI and seven bad losses. Yes they have big wins but I personally don't see how it makes up for their losses. We have a better SOS and RPI. It just doesn't add up for me. I'd love to here everyone else's thoughts.
I take the second team.
All you have to do is just a little addition. That's what I meant...just add the over 100 record and under 100 record. No, he didn't just put the overall record, but if you would have just looked a little closer, it was there to see. That's what I was saying.

I could write an essay on why Virginia shouldn't get in and debunk all of their "injury" issues they claim caused them to finish last in the Colonial Athletic Conference this season. I wouldn't give them a #1 seed in the NIT.
The first team is Oregon. The second team is Tennessee.
I have seen Oregon seeded 8-10 and in no bubble troube. However Tennessee is barely in or out.
I thought the second was UT put couldn't peg the first team. I think UT should be in regardless of how they perform in Nashville. It's probably our best win on the season and personally I think us losing that game on the road in Knoxville is the one loss I want back the most. I think we'd be in the tourney if we held on to that game. Of course that could be said about five of our losses.
yeah, someone else pointed that out also, but it threw me off when he wasn't counting a win, so our total was off.
anyway, i still take the other team.
as for the other 2 teams compared, i take the 2nd team. much better sos there.
Yeah that doesn't make much sense. UT's resume clearly is better.
For as bad as everyone bashes the SEC I think we are going to do better in the tournament then people think. UT will cause teams problems. Honestly if we get in I see us causing teams problems because of our defense. I'm just hoping we get a chance.
Here is a 3rd.
RPI = 41
non cons SOS = 105
SOS = 81
vs top 50 = 2-3
vs 51-100 = 4-4
vs +100 = 15-1
RPI = 65
non conf SOS = 74
SOS = 39
vs top 50 = 2-9
vs 51-100 = 4-2
vs +100 = 12-2
Who would you take 1st or 2nd and how wide of a gap do you see if any?
Which begs the question, is Tennessee in better shape or is Oregon in worse???
I personally think they are both in Scott, even if they lose their next game. Unless of course we have a ton of upsets in what should be the 1 bid conference tourneys.
Will be tough draws. But other than UF. I don't an SEC team getting far.

I think as long as Memphis wins the CUSA there are no other teams in contention to steal a bid per se. Akron and La Tech played themselves out in the last couple of weeks.
I can't see how Tennessee is left out at this point. I just have this feeling that if they lose to us they are going to be "that team" that gets left out this year. There is always somebody that should obviously be in that doesn't make it that everybody crows about. I hope not because, even though I hate all things UT, they deserve to be in.
