2019-2020 RPI

Postby Charleston Pony » Thu Dec 26, 2019 2:57 pm

CBS shows 9-2 SMU at # 123 ranked ahead of only USF (196), Tulsa (201), Tulane (244) and ECU (245) in the AAC...and of course, TCU (147). Our highest rated opponents to date # 40 Georgetown and # 75 Georgia. Our best win was vs # 62 Georgia State.

With 68 schools going to the NCAA and 32 to the NIT, any RPI hovering around the 100 mark is not going to earn an invite. The non-conference schedule is a killer as so many have suggested (absent wins against Georgetown, Georgia and Vandy) so this year's SMU team will probably have to finish no worse than 4th or maybe 5th in the AAC to have any hope of even the NIT. Right now, only Memphis and Wichita State appear to be NCAA worthy, but the season is still young.

2 bids. 3 only if a third team separates itself from the bunch.

For the NIT, again, looking at 2 bids unless a third team gets into the NCAA.

For those ripping on the non-conference schedule, we lost to a Georgia team who isn't going to the tourney, and we lost to a borderline tourney Georgetown team. I'll suggest that if we somehow finish third in the league, the reason we won't go to the NCAA isn't because the overall schedule wasn't good. It is going to be because we lost those two games.

I'll also say that you guys haven't learned the lesson from football. If we open the season at Baylor instead of Arkansas State and lose that game, it changes the entire tenor of the season. 10 wins in football and 20+ wins in basketball get attention. Period. Regardless of the schedule. Winning is EVERYTHING, for both marketing and recruiting. Play the baylor non-conference schedule every year with 4 blowout wins, and there are questions, but at least you are part of a conversation. Go 9-2 or 11-0 against a crappy schedule in basketball and at least you are still being talked about a little bit. Play a tough schedule and go 7-5 like Cincy, and nobody takes you seriously.

I get that when both programs get to the point where we are in the national championship conversation, then non-conference scheduling will matter more. But right now, both programs need to rack up the wins and get the that level first.

Don't worry about the Jank issue. He has a team with 4 starters who would be considered quality starters in the league. Everyone knows it. He will finish top 4 and get an NIT bid and stick around, or he won't and he won't. Regardless of the non-conference schedule. 19 games left. Lose at Vandy to go 9-3 non-conference. 18 conference games. He will need to go, what, 11-7 in conference to get a top 4-5 finish and get to the NIT? So, 20 wins is your mark. 20+ wins and we go to the NIT and Jank stays. 20 or less and he is out, and we still make a statement by firing the coach of a 18 win team.

I believe one of the new ratings the NCAA uses now to determine who goes to the tournament is the NET. Here are a couple of websites you can go to and see how the teams, conferences, etc are doing.

Current NET rankings:
10 WSU
14 Memphis
40 Houston
42 Temple

Right now it could be a two bid league. Hopefully four. Needed great OOC play.

Our NET has trended higher than other rankings this season which bodes well for potential tournament chances if we make a run in conference.
