Looks like winning both our games this week will do it,


#3

Looks like some voters have UTA on auto-vote.

It’s more like marathon than sprint. Up to #33 counting the 30 votes they received. Last week 1 vote was at #46. Win next 3 and for sure will put them in top 25. Probably in top 20. KenPom rankings has LSU & OK ST in their top 55. UH is 41 in KenPom. Oregon losing to TSU didn’t help matters. 3+ months of basketball left to make push and noise. #GoCoogs

St Johns and Houston are the only undefeated teams not ranked.


(Kyle) #6

Can someone remind me how the NET factors in to NCAA tourney selection this year?


(Munzell Milluns) #7

I’m more worried about our w-l record going into January.


(Russel ) #8

I think its supposed to replace RPI. So im guessing they are going to give the same consideration to net that they did to RPI.


(Kyle) #9

That’s going to make for one hell of a selection show if that is the case…


(Tom Green) #10

Well at least that eliminates the East coast writers bias.


(Tom Green) #11

Totally agree. Hoping for at least 11-2 or 12-1 going into first conf gm Jan 2. Notice I didn’t say the other option like some said for football…will not go down that road. :roll_eyes:


(Dan) #12

That’s weak not to rank us but it doesn’t really matter at this point in the season.


(Munzell Milluns) #13

Probably not even good for our kids right now. Better to have them play their way into the ranking. Its more in line with Sampson’s philosophy anyway.


#14

The reality is that the team is jelling, was tested by UTRGV, beat one good team in Oregon. Just stay the course, beat Lamar 7-0!

#26 in the Coaches poll…

#16

I thought we’d have a good shot at getting ranked coming into last week if we went 2-0, but the scare against UTRGV and Oregon’s loss to TSU made that tougher.

We’re #41 in Kenpom so I can’t feel too angry about not being ranked.

If we go 2-0 this week we should be ranked in the coaches but might still be a week away in the AP.


#17

ESPN’s BPI ranking has us at #29.

#18

Once Oregon lost at home vs TSU, no way in hell UH was going to be ranked. Beat Lamar & Okie Lite, we’re in top 20.


(Jimmy Morris) #19

AP and Coaches Poll will have no relevance on who gets in the tourney or how they are seeded so it’s not really something to be concerned about.


#20

Last year the committee actually used BPI, along with Sagarin and Kenpom, as secondary rating systems. I’m not sure if that’s supposed to continue with the adoption of NET. However, I think it is and will probably be more important this year in particular since they are switching to a rating system they’ve never used before. Wouldn’t shock me if they rely a tad on the polls for that reason as well.
