2012-13 Ranking and Bracketology Thread
« on: December 28, 2012, 12:57:36 pm »
I was thinking that we have a thread just for discussing rankings, ratings, polls etc.

Seawolves Ranking now:

RPI (CBS): 80
Sagarin: 74
Pomeroy: 103

Newsday Metropoll: 2
NYPost Ranking: 3

I know it's projection, but its exciting just to see us here:

Can't imagine how exciting it would be if we make it to the tourney!

That would be great Ecasado!

Can you also please open another sticky thread (preferably under Hoopps) to discuss Conference realignment, and its trickle down effect on college basketball, movement of other hoops programs, possible America East expansion etc?

Seawolves Ranking now:

RPI (CBS): 76 ↑
Sagarin: 74 --
Pomeroy: 99 ↑

With conference schedule around the corner, probably going to see all three going down. But since AE is a one bid conference, they dont really mean much at this point and winning the AE tournament and reaching the tourney should be our main priority.

How are Albany at #20 and Bryant at #25 and Stony Brook not in top 25?

I believe that is the CIT poll which Will Brown is a voter.  Albany has ponied up big cash to play in the CIT - I dont put much stock in the poll at all.  If we can go a week without losing we are poised to jump into most of the mid-major polls.

RPI (teamrankings): 90 ↓
Sagarin: 78 ↓
Pomeroy: 95 ↑


Since Non-conference is now over, these numbers might be interesting to look back on, as I'd imagine that all will drop after conference play starts.  I look at the same rankings; I'll list in my order:

RealTime RPI (AE conference rank is #24)/Sagarin/Ken Pom
SBU - 91/78/95
UA   - 108/147/183
BU   - 191/103/105
UVM - 178/194/188
UH   - 174/214/223
UM   - 259/288/287
UNH - 289/242/253
Bing - 339/341/344
UMBC- 342/321/320

Right now, I think you are the slight favorite in the league.  This is pretty interesting also:

It is good to those those types of numbers. I feel we can put away UNH  this Saturday if we bring our A game.

KenPom has SBU rated ahead of some pretty heavy hitters in college hoops-- Villanova, St. John's, George Mason, Xavier, DePaul....  Let's hope they play up to their billing!
