 I said ranking does not matter, not seeding. My point was the AE is only going to send 1 team to the dance, and it might be in the play-in game.

Yes you're perfectly right.  We have to win the AE Tourney, not disputing that. Just pointing out that if we have a better RPI ranking, we would have a much better chance pulling off an upset in the NCAA tourney if we were to get there.  At this point the top AE team is definitely not a lock for the play in game or a 16 seed.

Seawolves09. Why be worried about Seeding in the NCAA Tourney when we haven't even made it to second base (Win AE Tourney)... We all know what happens when  we skip the bases... Forget about seeding, at least for now. Our team has to prove they belong first. We just need to make the tourney. if we make the tourney then we can worry about seeding in future tourneys.

Obviously we have to win.  Its not like me looking past that will hurt the team in any way.  In general, if any America East team wants to get better than a 16 seed then ranking matters.  I wasn't talking about just Stony Brook, thus why I said if a middle of the pack team wins they will be a 16 seed, but a top 3 team would not necessarily be a lock.

Ranking doesn't matter at this stage, but it is fun to keep track of just see where we stand nationally.

The latest CBS Sports bracketology has us still at #14 seed for the Tournament. If we sweep the rest of the conference, or even lose one more game, that might push up up a notch to #13. I'm glad the dreaded 16 seed doesn't seem likely at this point.  And yes, I know....there's still the AE Tournament to win....

I noticed the 16 bracket box is empty.  Could you tell me why the 16th spot is so bad !!!!!!!!!

No team has ever won a game at #16. Being seeded higher also carries with it a bit of "prestige" than can be used for recruiting. A team with a losing record in a weak conference can make the NCAA Tournament as a 16 seed if they win their conference tournament.

What kills me is that even if I wanted to be excited about the RPI and potential seeding... I really can't. I just can't get excited. I've been in the last two championship games (@Boston, @SBU), I know how it feels like to be there, so close but not make it. Until I don't see us past the Championship game I can't think of RPI...

One game at a time. Lets go Seawolves
