I honestly think it's just a vehicle for the committee to pick and choose who they want in the tourney. I was noticing on Lunardi's Braketology today that VT, after beating NCST and winning @UVA this week, we're 'trending down' into an 11 seed. We're now 56 in the RPI and I was looking at teams ahead of us. Nebraska has a worse record, a worse SOS, and is 0-5 against top 25 teams. VT is 2-3. Nebraska is ahead of us in RPI. Buffalo is 11! spots in front of us, are 17-7 (we're 18-7) and their best win is Toledo who is 71, next best win is 124... I get it, to many of us RPI means nothing, but the committee still references it, and will continue to legitimize their selections using it. How is this logical?
