RPI WATCH: 1/31/2010

New, 4 comments

Despite poor performances by multiple non-conference opponents, the Cats' SOS shot up to No. 1 today — probably due mostly to playing That Team Atop the Big 12 Standings and its glowing 20-1 record.

The Good: Dayton got back over .500 in A-10 play, Pine Bluff moved to 6-2 and continues to tear it up after its non-con of death, Cleveland State slowly is inching back to .500, and South Dakota won a tough road game by a point.

The Bad: Loyola lost to Wright State, Western Illinois lost at home to Oakland, and Boston lost at Stony Brook to fall to .500.

The Ugly: Wazzu absolutely was shelled by a mediocre Washington team and fell below .500 in an atrocious Pac-10, and Alabama lost to horrendous Auburn. Both teams are disturbingly close to falling out of the RPI Top 100.

The Stunning: Fort Hays State finally lost to a Division II opponent, when Northwest Missouri State claimed the rematch at home.

As always, I will cover the Big 12 games in BIG 12 OUTLOOK tonight. For numbers, follow the jump.
