Missouri loses at home Eastern Illinois who has an RPI of 258.
These are the kind of losses that keep the SEC with only 3-4 teams getting bids. Seems like we have them every year. Can’t have power 5 teams coming into conference with a 250+ RPI, lowering everybody else’s RPI.
Misery is even worse than Moo U and Moo U is pretty bad. Put it this way: UCA is 1-10 and its RPI is better than Misery. Five of the 14 SEC teams are outside the top 100 RPI at the moment, and we’re getting far enough into the schedule that RPI is starting to have some validity.
Right now Florida has the best RPI in the SEC; nice way to start the league schedule. At least we’re not in the Swamp this year.
Speaking of SEC News, since most teams are at least 10 games in. What is everyone’s thoughts on the SEC this year? And what are you predictions for conference since it’s starting in less than 2 weeks.
Here’s my SEC “Power Rankings”
South Carolina (If Thornwell returns)
I was kinda torn on Arkansas. We’ve looked really good, I could see us being the second best team. But, up to this point I just think South Carolina and Florida have had bigger wins. We’ll learn more about us when we play Florida here in about a week and a half.
