re: NCAA Regional Host Candidate Comparison - MikeTheTiger71
I added UNC into the mix and stopped numbering teams that aren’t likely in the running due to their RPI. That leaves 16 major conference teams plus USM, Ga Southern/Texas St and E Carolina in the running....

re: NCAA Regional Host Candidate Comparison - MikeTheTiger71
In looking at these numbers and based on whose done in the conference tournaments, I would argue that Virginia, Louisville, TCU, Auburn and Oregon should be eliminated from host contention. Due to RPI, Auburn and Louisville are probably still in contention while Arkansas is probably out and UCLA nev...

re: RPI Update - LSU RPI At 22 After Vols Game; UF at 21 - MikeTheTiger71
[quote]If LSU doesn’t host it won’t be because of Arkansas taking their place[/quote] I agree it’s more likely to be Auburn. Finishing behind Arkansas in overall SEC record might also be the factor that prevents LSU from hosting, but probably not because Arkansas takes a spot instead. LSU really ...

[quote]Lsu has gone from 17 to 21 in a matter of less than an hour. Rpi is fricking retarded this year[/quote] E Carolina at #18 is at .5838 and LSU at #22 is at .5831. Oklahoma St leapt over that group with a win to drop the range of the 5 teams that are essentially tied. LSU probably moves up t...

[quote]LSU and Arkansas are on two pretty different and obvious trajectories right now. if the committee doesnt take that into account then frick em[/quote] Oh, I definitely agree with that. I really don’t think there’s much chance of Arkansas hosting. I’d just rather LSU win another game or two ...

re: RPI Update - LSU RPI At 22 After Vols Game; UF at 21 - MikeTheTiger71
[quote]It's the first time since Arkansas in 2013. They didn't host that year either. Happened to Kentucky in 2012. They didn't host. [/quote] I remember the discussion on that, but forget the specifics. Was the SEC the highest rated conference both years? Did Arkansas and Kentucky still have the...

re: RPI Update - LSU RPI At 22 After Vols Game; UF at 21 - MikeTheTiger71
[quote]Let it go. Arkansas isn’t hosting[/quote] More than likely not. I just don’t think any of us can say with any degree of certainty what the committee is going to do in a year when RPI and conference standings are so dramatically disconnected from each other. If RPI is given that much greate...

re: Where would RPI need to be for Top 8 seed? - MikeTheTiger71
[quote]Good points but we can’t play Tenn in the finals.[/quote] You’re right. I forgot that the tournament has now locked into two completely separate brackets with no crossover. I amend my comments to say that LSU needs to win the tournament or at least go 1-1 against Tennessee. The key part is...

re: Where would RPI need to be for Top 8 seed? - MikeTheTiger71
I think A&M has probably locked in a Top 8 seed at this point, or at least ahead of LSU. The first 6 seeds are already set. That leaves one spot remaining, which I think is pretty wide open at this point. Louisville has fallen to #18 in the RPI and USM’s loss dropped them to #15. Texas may have move...

[quote]Arkansas has an RPI in the 40s with no more games to play this week. I'd be stunned if they host.[/quote] I think it’s unlikely, but I’m not sure I’d feel entirely comfortable leaving it to the committee to sort out between LSU, Auburn and Arkansas if LSU loses out. You’d have Auburn in th...

re: RPI Update - LSU RPI At 22 After Vols Game; UF at 21 - MikeTheTiger71
[quote]We moved up 1 to #19 after the Gators eliminated the Hogs. But at #19 there is at least 5 teams ahead of us that likely will not be hosting (Vandy, UGA, Auburn, Dallas Baptist, and Georgia Southern). I think we are in good shape, I just don't want to go 1-2. Let's win the next one and lock it...

re: NCAA Regional Host Candidate Comparison - MikeTheTiger71
[quote]none of that matters. LSU RPI about to jump to like 10 from the what's been known this year as the Tennessee bumper. no matter if we get blown out [/quote] They will definitely get a bump win or lose, but if they lose two straight at this point, they’ll probably land back around #20. That ...

re: NCAA Regional Host Candidate Comparison - MikeTheTiger71
[quote]But now you are explaining exactly what splitting into quads does.[/quote] Understood. The difference is that I’m trying to find a dividing line that more accurately reflects the distribution of teams this season vs an arbitrary static breakpoint. Why is 50 the magic number? I also think r...

[quote]quote: Oregon loses 4-2 to Arizona State and goes 0-2 this week They should take a hit with that loss. Arizona St has been pretty bad.[/quote] Yeah, I think going 0-2 pretty much eliminates them from host contention. They’re down to #27 in the RPI and their overall conference record at 1...
