A. Each men's team must maintain a 1.8 average (the women's team requirement is 2.0) for all non-conference games schedules. The RPI at the conclusion of the NCAA Tournament of the preceding season will be used for the pre-season analysis and the current season's pre-NCAA tournament RPI will be used for post-season analysis. The point values are as follows:
Ranked 1-50 in the RPI: 4 points
Ranked 51-100 in the RPI: 3 points
Ranked 101-125 in the RPI: 2.5 points
Ranked 126-150 in the RPI: 2 points
Ranked 151-175 in the RPI: 1 point
Ranked 176-200 in the RPI: 0.5 point
Ranked 201 in the RPI: 0 points
I'm not sure I have last years latest RPI numbers, but here's out list:
Charlotte (76) 3 pts
(fyi St. Louis RPI was 49)
Fla Intl (278) 0 pts
App St (158) 1 pt : 2 times
St Francis 257 or W&M (252) both 0 pts
WVU (86) 3pts
UMD (23) or Gonzaga (42) 3 pts
Towson (313) 0 pts
ODU (192) 0.5 pts
Fairfield (94) 3 pts
Teas (3) 4 pts
I get a total of 18.5 pts / 11 games = 1.68
which is not so hot, on the other hand, I'm not sure I'm using the correct RPI numbers. The rules don't start until 2004 and you only need to meet the standard 1 of 3 years.
I assume the Big Red will either go away or be upgraded. I fear the attendence is so poor at the Big Red that it's hard to see how GW can afford to bring in better teams. Unless all of us start contributing larger amounts of money.
That's another thing, Dom said we're short on cash this year so he pleaded for more support. Do your part if you can afford it.
