    You clearly aren’t using RPI, are you just assigning regional hosts to your favorite teams? For instance:
    Cal Poly is 17-3 with the number 30 RPI, 14 ISR and 146 SoS
    Houston is 15-3 with the number 2 RPI, 1 ISR, and 28 SoS
    You have Cal Poly as a national seed and Houston not even hosting a regional. Really? You should predict on performance and not on what you hope will occur the rest of the season! You don’t understand how hosts are assigned.

    The fact that no one else ever comments on your predictions probably indicates everyone else already knows it is fantasy. I’m just nice enough to let you know why you aren’t getting any attention with this fiction.

      Houston RPI will not be top 16 with the conference they play in!

        My point exactly. Cal Poly must be seeded in your analysis based on where you think they are now and UH on where they will finish. Cal Poly is an equally poor conference and will not improve on its strength of schedule which is already embarrassing. At least UH supplements its conference schedule with Rice, Texas, TCU, Texas A&M, Texas Tech, Sam Houston State. You are not using the same criteria for all colleges.

        Cal Poly RPI isn’t near top 8 now, not even top 16. If “Houston RPI will not be in top 16 with the conference they play in” then you are implying (or at least your readers are inferring) that you believe Cal Poly will be near the top with the conference they play in. This is a stretch.

          The top team from the Big West has historically gotten a number 1 seed in the regionals. I take Fullerton, Irvine, and Cal Poly in the Big West over anything that Houston plays in a watered down AAC.

        According to Boyd’s site, UH needs to go 22-11 to finish the year to get into the top 16 of the RPI. That certainly is doable for a team that is 19-4.

    If CofC end up being a 2 seed, there is no way the CAA only gets 1 bid. They received 3 last year.
