    I thought this would be a good time to check this out. I used BPI, Sagarin, NET, KenPom, Torvik, KPI and RPI.

    This is the top 25:

    1. Kansas
    2. Duke
    3. Baylor
    4. Gonzaga
    5. Louisville
    6. West Virginia
    7. Dayton
    8. San Diego State
    9. Maryland
    10. Arizona
    11. Michigan State
    12. Seton Hall
    13. Florida State
    14. Auburn
    15. Butler
    t16. Villanova
    t16. Penn State
    18. Ohio State
    19. Oregon
    20. Colorado
    21. Purdue
    22. Creighton
    23. BYU
    t24. Kentucky
    t24. LSU

    Other receiving votes: Marquette(19), Rhode Island(17), Houston(13), Texas Tech(12), Illinois(11), Rutgers(11), Iowa(9), Stanford(5), Arkansas(4), Northern Iowa(4), USC(2), Wichita State(1).

    One noticeable thing is that the metrics love the B1G, the resume based metrics(KPI, RPI) do not. MSU, OSU, Purdue, Iowa, Illinois and Rutgers not in the top 25 of either. Found that to be interesting.

    Based on almost everything that matters (SOS, road wins, eye test), Baylor should be #1 by a fair margin. Not to mention they've already beaten the composite #1 on their home court, so I'm not sure how that happened.

    Arizona ahead of Oregon very questionable.

    Purdue and OSU being where they are both questionable, but I do understand at least why they are there.

    Personally, NET is pretty good this year. However, committee is going to have a real problem with teams in the Big Ten with 13+ losses and NET<40. I think Providence will be in that group too. I hate seeing teams with 13-14 losses getting in but there will be a few this year.

    That is odd given the resumes of some of those teams.

    Looks good overall though
