What do you have against Virginia Tech? Besides having a better overall and conference record, they have beaten Wake and Clemson, yet you still have them well below those 2 teams.

Rhode Island has an RPI of 25 and I know that loss to St Louis hurt them, but I still think they would have better than a #12 seed.

Congratulations on putting San Diego State University in your bracket finally. They have an RPI of 37. Don't you think they should have something better than a 12 seed? Don't they have a signature win over #10 New Mexico?

Why is Florida given such a high seed? They have a RPI of 53. They have no signature wins. This team lost to South Alabama at home which has an RPI of like 228.

To the other poster.
Wake Forest has an RPI of 21, and Clemson has an RPI of 35. They beat them at home and luckily don't have to play them on the road. Virgina Tech has played a lot of fluff 8 of the teams they played are not even in the RPI top 225. I mean they beat up on alot of crappy teams. Which is why they have an RPI of 43. Coming up. They have Boston college on the road, and they barely beat them at home. That should be interesting. They also have to play Maryland and Georgia Tech.

I'm trying to figure out why Michigan St. is still getting love from so many people. With their resume they're a 6 seed right now.

Why does everyone put so much emphasis on RPI? Just because the "experts" always point to it doesn't mean it tells a whole lot about a team. Do you even know how the RPI rankings are calculated?

Take a look at a team like Cal. They are 18-9, 0-4 against the top 50 RPI, and 4-3 against 51-100 RPI teams. But because they have a SOS of 9, they have an RPI of 24. Do you really think they are the 24th best team in the country. It doesn't matter if you play good teams if you can't beat any of them.

Another indicator of good teams is not losing to bad teams. I think it says a lot about a team like Virginia Tech to go 15-0 against 100+ RPI teams. They can't control how good the teams on their schedule are. They scheduled Penn St. this year who won the NIT last year, how are they supposed to know PSU will stink this year?

I like how they claim VT's worst loss is at UNC. Do they forget UNC was ranked 12th at the time? Just a thought
