Another FWIW from Sagarin

We’re up to #33 in his rankings after beating Sammy last night. Florida is #15, yet can’t crack the polls (exactly what I mean about preconceived notions, national people don’t think anyone but Kentucky can ball in this league).

Also, using his Predictor ratings, Florida would be a 2-point favorite at BWA if we were playing tonight. Not sure how much things might change in the interim since neither team plays again until we meet.

In other notes, we’re up to #20 in the real RPI, the one the NCAA does. Some of the RPI simulation sites have us a little higher than that, but the simulation sites won’t be on the committee’s table in March. Florida is #5. Amazing what playing nine neutral site games in November and December will do to your RPI, especially if you win most of them.
