I know its early in the season but I also know that the RPI rankings play a big role in selection and seeding once the tournament arrives and I don't get it at all. Take a look at this week's RPI and see if you can explain how some teams are ranked where they are. And i looked at each of their respective wins and losses for "quality wins" and "bad losses" and still makes zero sense to me.
Somehow Long Beach State, with their glittery 5-6 record is considered the 12th best team in the county while Ohio State is 21st and Michigan is 54th? How can any ranking system so obviously screwed up be utilized in determining something as important as the teams selected to the tournament?
