RPI WATCH: 1/9/2011

Lots to recap, so let's go rapid-fire style:

Wins

  • Baylor and Texas A&M took care of business and did what they had to do, but they didn't prove anything one way or the other.
  • Colorado shocked the world and made my conference preview for the Buffaloes look pretty stupid.
  • Florida and Gonzaga won their conference openers.
  • James Madison and Texas Southern each won a third conference game.
  • Nebraska won, but I'm not sure it deserved to. Enjoy it while it lasts...
  • We all know what Oklahoma State did. Could be its best win of the season when all is said and done.
  • UMKC won its second conference game.
  • UNLV and Virginia Tech each won their first conference game.
  • Washington State climbed back to .500 in conference play with its second home win in a row.

Losses

  • Alcorn State still is winless and probably will stay that way all season. No Arkansas-Pine Bluff, they.
  • Emporia State lost its third conference game on the road.
  • Iowa State dug a huge early hole for itself and almost climbed out before losing the game with a stupid turnover and a stupid foul. Ouch. Welcome to the Big 12, Mr. Mayor.
  • Loyola is falling apart. The Ramblers fell to 1-5 in conference play and I'm damn glad we beat them.
  • WTF, Missouri?
  • North Florida fell to .500 in conference play and .333 overall.
  • Oklahoma and Texas Tech are what we thought they were — really, really bad.
  • Presbyterian lost its third conference game in an obscene blowout at home and subsequently fell out of the RPI Top 100. So much that quality win.
  • Connecticut and Texas put on an epic display of alternating brain farts and circus shots. In the end, it came down to this simple fact: Texas doesn't have a Kemba Walker. Sorry, Rick.
