re: Why the SEC is better in basketball this year compared to the past
Posted by wm72 on 12/16 at 4:28 pm
[quote]Losing to Winthrop, Gardner-Webb and Rutgers probably didn't help them.[/quote] Maybe Winthrop is extraordinarily low but I recall Garner Webb being around 30-31 RPI? (or so I recall that they were just above Alabama) and Rutgers is Top100. ...

We should just go ahead and pencil Clemson into the SEC tourney championship game against UK. :lol: By the way, how many teams drastically above them does Clemson have to beat to see their RPI rise? ...

[quote]mynamebowl[/quote] Some of it is that usually in these threads people are arguing different points of emphasis. One side, says, rightly that if have a Chris Paul who develops Andrea Pirlo skills you'll likely have one of the best players in the world (or at very least what many think a ...

[quote] This is what this thread is really all about. In America we pay to play. In other countries these kids as young as 8 or 9 are sent off to go to school and be coached by elite coaches at academies.

[quote]What happened? I saw some Roma games earlier in the year and he played in all of them, and played well I thought.

[quote]m sick of people not understanding that the way the CFP committee ranks teams is not how the AP/Coaches poll works. There is no such unwritten rule that you don't drop a team if it wins or that you must drop a team if it loses. Every week is a complete reevaluation of each team's record. When...

[quote]Although it seems strange because they didn't play, teams that were on their schedule played, so it's feasible that their schedule strength could change.

There was really no reason whatsoever for Michigan St to even be ranked over Miss St in the first place since the committee supposedly valued quality wins. Did Mich St have any top 25 wins at all? Seems the committee just pulled out some AP poll logic the week before and dropped Miss St too f...
