I think if SMU and Cinci win out the winner of the conference tournament should get a 5 and the lose a 6.

SMU AP #19

Postby Grant Carter » Mon Feb 13, 2017 3:42 pm

According to RPIforecast.com, if SMU wins out all the way and beats cincy in the aac final, smu would be around 11th RPI. If cincy wins out until losing to SMU in the aac final, cincy would be about 11th too. That implies 3 seeds. But, applying the usual aac discount of two seeds you probably do get to around 5th if that happens.

fair ratings. Hope we both make the sweet 16 instead of more disappointing 1st round losses like the AAC's representatives have experienced in the past

As long as we don't get cheating goal tending refs, we can make it to the 2nd round!

It is annoying, if not criminal, that SMU remains unranked in the ESPN "BPI" Top 25.

SMU is 19 in BPI and it is actually one of the metrics that has had us up there the longest. SMU fan paranoia is everywhere!

I personally love KenPom's rankings, and no I'm not bias. :D #12 way ahead of #21 Cincy!

We are, however, unranked in ESPN's Power Rankings by Jeff Goodman. Not sure what he is waiting for.

Need to recheck that. February 13th posting (post Cincy win) still has us out. Maybe this week.
