  1. All the numbers say that Kansas is the best team, but after actually watching them play 7-8 games… I’m not impressed.

    Don’t get me wrong. They could turn out to be the best team in the tournament. I just don’t think there’s much separation between them and UK, Nova, or Syracuse based on watching them all play.

    RPI numbers should be used for seeding, but you’ve got to use your eyes a little bit for this stuff.

  2. That wasn’t the case when I put this together. We could go back through every day and note the changes, but as of Sunday at 3, the rpi had it listed as 1-0.

  3. Cool. It’s not like 2 wins is that much more impressive than 1 anyway.

    I would like to thank Louisville for at least trying to make our OOC respectable.
