One more quick post about this just to underscore the stupidity.

The RPI, as of this second according to, has our OOC SoS ranked 325th and our overall SoS ranked 89th. Our RPI ranking is 59.

By contrast, they have Arizona's OOC SoS ranked 59th, overall SoS ranked 38th, and Arizona has an RPI ranking of 18.

But look at Ken Massey's ratings. He has VT with an overall SoS of 54 and Arizona with an overall SoS of 50. Much, much, much closer together. He doesn't have OOC SoS listed because OOC SoS is A STUPID IDEA TO BEGIN WITH AND SHOULDN'T BE A THING. None of these teams from garbage conferences that play intentionally murderous non-conference schedules are making the tournament unless they win their conference tourney. Texas Southern is not getting an at-large bid. The whole thing is ridiculous.

Also, Massey currently has VT ranked 24th and Arizona ranked 26th.
