    In the BB Press Module — there is a “Pending” folder for items awaiting a moderator’s review and approval…
    The first attempt was a New Topic — “The World We Live In… Aint The World We Grew Up In…”
    The second was as a comment on this Topic…

    The only thing in the “pending” folder that I found was something from an ECU fan from several years ago. I found two spam folders, I’ll look again for a second pending folder.

    Variations in RPI calcs.

    I plotted CBS and ESPN’s RPI rankings to see how much difference there is between the two.

    It’s a shame that State’s is one of the rankings with a large discrepancy…but for now, whatever ESPN has won’t affect our projections and conclusions.

    Very nice write up as always. I have no illusions that there will be any mystery for the Pack come selection Sunday, but hay we can always let it play out and see what happens.

    Everything I know about the bubble I learned from Vawolf. Sadly, because I am a state fan I have had to learn a lot.

    I think our RPI will improve tomorrow even with a loss.

    I am thinking our “magic” number right now is 8 or 9. I think if we do that, we will have a bubblelicious RPI and lots of key wins that the NCAA likes. We need some little things like some of those cupcakes we played being better than they were the year before. Arizona, Penn State, UT and UNI remaining good would help too….but one of them will obviously need to faulter.

    Here’s a question on our Rpi- if we assume we go 10 and 8 in the Acc and have wins versus maybe 2 more ranked teams, is there any way our Rpi can go down? Our schedule strength over the season can only improve as weak ooc games get weighted less by stronger conference games, right?

    Around the ACC today…

    Tiggers beat ‘Canes by 9 at home…
    Noles over ‘Cuse by 11 in 2 OTs at home…
    Da’Ville over ‘Hokies by 8 at home…

    GaTech over Pitt by 15 on the road…

    Home Teams 3 – 1
    avg margin of victory == 8.5pts…

    The obvious point being that every game in the ACC is a tough game
    and it helps a whole lot to play at home…

    And just for fun… may I suggest “RPI don’t mean sh#t in ACC games” ???

    And in the nightcap….
    Those HOLES from Orange County Community College are struggling against the Irish up in South Bend up only 3 at the half …

    Here’s hoping the Irish can hold to the form…

    Wolfmanmat – I’d we do that NY entirely uneducated guess us that we’d have a Top 50 RPI

    8-9 wins probably not enough. We’d have to get to 10 with a couple of biggies. I just don’t see the consistency yet. We have done better in the half court this week but that trend has to continue.

    The OCC schedule was so soft that we really cannot have enough conference wins (meaning instead of targeting a number, go win them all). In reality the number we need to win really depends on who we beat and who we lose to. Because of the non-conference and the 3 losses, we would seemingly need to make 9-9 to pass the “eye test” but I think if we can get a few more good wins (tomorrow would be absolutely huge) while not having any bad losses (GT, Pitt or WF), we might make it in depending on how the ACC tournament goes.

    That’s a lot of “ifs.” We should take one game at a time, strive to be better game to game and throughout the game. Next year we should improve the nonconference slate.

    Texpack – when I say 8 or 9 I mean that many wins with our remaining games (including ACC tournament). That should get us in the tournament. I think we’d have to at least finish 9-9 and win a tournament game. In theory that number would also allow us to go 8-10 and reach the ACC tournament finals (and lose) as well.

    But if we can 9 of our next 17 games, I think we dance. #cartwaybeforehorse.

    For what its worth I am enjoying seeing this years Pack grow. Likely they will not meet my goal (always a natty) but they have proved to be an interesting bunch.
