I'm sure this makes sense to someone, but after just playing 4 top-20 teams (3 top 10) within 10 days, our strength of schedule is #25 in the country. Who has played a "tougher" schedule so far (with SOS rank in parentheses):
-New Mexico (#4): played 0 (currently) ranked teams
-Miami (#1): played 4 ranked teams
-Oklahoma (#7); played 5 ranked teams
-Arizona (#10): played 2 ranked teams
-Florida (#16): played 5 ranked teams
In short, WTF? In a world where NMU is considered to have the 4th toughest schedule and #3 RPI, I wonder what the point is of any of these numbers. Of course, they make for conversation, but clearly something is massively out of whack. Maybe this is a reason that the B1G fairs not as well as expected come tourney time. Thoughts? Am I just looking at these ranking incorrectly?
