Tennessee, now #10, prevails. It was a game of huge runs, as the Vols sprinted out to an early 32-16 lead at home. The crowd was rocking at Thompson-Boling Arena. Before you could bat an eye, the Razorbacks recovered and, only a few minutes into the second half, tied the game at 48. The remainder of the game had a March Madness feel to it, as the teams battled back and forth. As soon as it seemed one team was about to go on a run, the other would roar back to tie it up. The game came down to the final minute, as Tennessee was able to convert consecutive 3 pointers to put the game away 77-70. A well fought game that was tooth and nail, nothing you wouldn't expect from two top 10 teams!

Tennessee hands Arkansas its first Top-25 loss, while remaining unbeaten against top-flight competition itself at 5-0.


Vols huh. Hmmm__Okay. I think I found my cc coaching dream job :lol:

Haha. At first I didn't get it and then I looked at your name again and was like, "ohhhhhhhhh." :lol:

Coach Hath has stated on numerous occasions the only job he would leave for is if the University of Michigan job opened up, since he is an alumnus. ;) So if that ever happens, you might get your wish!

How is it that the ACC leading UNC Tarheels are getting no top 25 love @ 18-6? RPI formula seems to be ignoring some quality :0

The Heels are close...#29. And 0-3 mark vs. the top-25 is holding back their RPI.

^^^
The RPI is quite accurate. The formula measures the pertinent factors in a realistic fashion. The NCAA Tournament would be much more fair if they only used the RPI. But of course the so-called power conferences don't want to give up control.

My 17-8 Butler Bulldogs are hardly much worse record wise than the 18-6 Tarheels. But they are 29 RPI and my Bulldogs are 56 RPI. There's a more than fair reason for the big difference. They have performed that much better despite the close records. Bottom line: If UNC is not in the top 25 it's b/c they haven't earned it.

Butler announces that they will also sport black SW armbands for the remainder of the season to honor the late Alabama head coach, SouthernWarrior.

Are you saying the RPI formula used is the ACTUAL RPI formula?? I was presuming it was homemade.

It is homemade, but closely replicates the real formula with just a few minor tweaks.

how does baylor make top 25 when they are 4th in the conference and im not in it leading the conference? I have a better top 25 record and we split our series?

I thought it was the actual formula. I stand by the actual formula as I've followed it and seen just how accurate it is. I don't know about the tweaked formula. Perhaps it's tweaked to deal with some CC nuances. Perhaps it's tweaked too much to favor Top 25 wins IMO. B/C I have a good record and point margin and I'm way down in the RPI (and I was wondering in the back of my if that was b/c the formula had been tweaked). I'm only 0-1 vs. Top 25. I don't know if that's necessarily punishing me or just over rewarding other teams for their top 25 performance.

i wondered about the tweaked formula myself. i went something like 16-0 and only spent 1 week at #1. granted, not many of the teams i played were top 25. but i actually was making a gradually drop from #1 down to #6 i think it was, having never lost a game. i just don't see how you should go backwards if you continue to win.

The thing about using a computer formula that doesn't involve voting is that it is plausible to go down despite continuing to go undefeated. I won't pretend to know how the formula works, but looking at how the top 25 is distributed just based on overall record, I gotta trust its doing ok.
I think strength of conference may also be important, but not sure.

ding, ding, ding...commander, yes strength of conference is one of the minor factors.

I may tweak it a bit next season in terms of the top-25 ratio...originally that was set to include wins vs. the top-40, but that was just killing me time-wise, so I knocked it back to top-25 this year.

Yea__ Top 40 was much more accurate. Even if you want to keep it top 25 to save time then I'd lessen how much it means in the formula relative to other factors.
