Hammer and Rails is trying to sort out the #1 seeds

Link to their post here.

They didn't consider Kansas State, but I can't really argue with the 7 teams they did pick.  (They may also have completely blanked on K-State's existence since they also left us off Kansas' win list.)  Just for my own amusement I put together KSU's profile in the same style for comparison and it seems to fall towards the bottom of the pile, but doesn't really look out of place.  (My RPI numbers are 3 days newer than theirs so there will be some discrepancies.)

Kansas State (21-4, 9-3) RPI: 6  SOS: 6

Top 25 RPI wins: #13 Texas A&M, at #15 Baylor, #19 Xavier, #25 Texas

Top 50 RPI wins: #37 Dayton (neutral court), at #43 UNLV

Losses: #1 Kansas, #29 Oklahoma State, at #39 Missouri, #60 Mississippi (neutral court)

Positives: 6-1 in true road games (5-1 in conference, 2-0 vs top 50 RPI), loss to Mississippi was early in the season, remaining schedule is solid, but except for Kansas should be wins, #6 in SOS, in #1 RPI conference, could really impress people with a win at Kansas

Negatives: loss to Mississippi and home loss to Oklahoma State hurt a bit, 2nd place in conference with little chance to get to first, 4 losses already and Kansas will probably provide a 5th

Remaining Schedule: at #46 Texas Tech, #39 Missouri, at #1 Kansas, #120 Iowa State

Verdict: ? 
I figure I'll leave that for everybody else to discuss.  It seems like the real wild card is, "Can they win the rematch with Kansas, and if not, how much of a handicap do they get for playing 2 games against the #1 team?"
