Let's say we beat Virginia Community today.. Could we get ranked in the top 20 next week? I bet our RPI would jump to top 25 too. I mean we would have beat two top 15 teams.

According to RPI Wizard, our RPI would move to 39.  SOS of 180 is a huge drag.

No need to denigrate a fellow A10 school ESI92.   Next year, let's not play so many 330+ RPI schools.   Not to denigrate them, of course.

I would think we would be ranked in polls if we could make it to Monday unscathed. We are getting votes in one poll.

It would take a top 25 type team to win back to back on the road at VCU and URI.  That's a really, really tough task. 

In terms of the RPI, our current standing is messed up by the back-loaded conference schedule.  If you are worried about the RPI at this stage, the thing to know is that our SOS will start climbing, but we have to beat the good teams for it to grow.  If we just do lose the expected losses (VCU, URI, etc,) then our RPI will stay roughly where it is, but if we can play like a top 40 club against the tough teams than it will rise to where it belongs.   That's oversimplified, but right now the important thing is winning.

Ya RPI Wizard has us around 31 with an 8-3 finish, 38 with a 7-4 finish. Either would put us in fine shape. 

If we can't finish 7-4, don't think the SOS was the problem.
