RPI WATCH: 1/27/2010

Man, what happened to Dayton? It almost seems like it's falling apart under the weight of preseason expectations.

Shortly after we beat them, I labored under the apparently mistaken assumption that the Flyers eventually would re-enter the Top 25.

That doesn't appear likely anymore.

The latest blow came with a crushing one-point loss to Rhode Island, which desperately needed the win after dropping a game at Xavier. The Rams' victory snapped Dayton's 30-game home winning streak, which was fourth-longest in the nation, and sent Brian Gregory's team tumbling to 3-3 in the Atlantic 10. Ouch.

Luckily, the Cardiac Cats continue to offset misfortunes such as this by racking up quality wins faster than a binge gambler racks up debt in Las Vegas. The Baylor victory makes us 4-0 against Top 25 teams, 6-3 against the RPI Top 50 and 8-3 against the RPI Top 100. Resume builder, indeed.

And speaking of Vegas, how about those Runnin' Rebels, who moved to 5-2 in the Mountain West with a comeback win over Air Force? Everyone's eyes are fixated on tonight's game between league-leading BYU and New Mexico in The Pit, but don't sleep on UNLV's chances to come storming back in February...
