Im getting a bit ticked that we are getting no love in any of the mid major polls.  Albany was ranked in the CIT poll until Vermont waxed em.  We should be ranked in some top 25's somewhere.  Think im gonna start sending out some emails to these polls.

Seawolves Ranking now:

RPI (CBS): 103 ↓
Sagarin: 74 ↑
Pomeroy: 82 ↑

Pomeroy ranking looking real good. Again, we have to win AE tournament and go to the dance.. that should be the only goal. Not another NIT!

This shows that RPI is not a very good rating system. SBU wins convincingly by 25 points and gets downgraded. Yeah, it was over Bingo, but it was still a dominant win over a DI program. Sagarin and Kenpom ratings went up, as they should have.

agree.. RPI is a useful tool, but not the best rating system. Sagarin and Pomeroy are better indicator, despite their flaws such as not accounting for injured star players, or when a blowout turn into a 5 or 8 point win only because coach sits all the starters for last 10min.

At 82 on KemPom, Stony Brook is the highest rated AE team since the 2005 Vermont team, the one that eliminated Syracuse from NCAAs.

Sbufan, do you know what Vermont's actually rating was?

SBU would be the top rated team in the CAA today if it were a hoops member. Nice thought.

That's why I have little regard for RPI. It's the lazy man's rating system....doesn't account for margin of victory. Expect to see SBU stagnate or even drop in RPI even as they keep winning.

Is there a chance SBU could move out of the America East confrence and go to the CAA considering SBU Football is now in?.. Why wouldn't they ?? Is a long term process to be voted in... not quite sure how that entire process works!!!

There are arguments on both sides, Hammer. SBU has the best chance to get into the NCAA tourney by winning their conference, IF that conference is the AE instead of the CAA. Although the CAA has been a multi-bid conference in the past, it looks like just one bid for them this year.

Lets wait it out and see. Lets get to the NCAA a few times before jumping into the realignment game. If we can get into the NCAA consistently maybe we can join a multi-bid conference. Its's pointless to join the CAA. Its more competitive but you will still be fighting for that same automatic bid...
