RPI WATCH: 1/23/12

New, 3 comments

Virginia Tech finally did something constructive, if totally unexpected, to help our resume cause by logging its first ACC win in five attempts at ranked Virginia, of all places. The Cavaliers swept the Hokies last season.

Meanwhile, Charleston Southern and Long Beach State continue to beat up on weak leagues and propel our SOS forward, while the loss to West Virginia looks more respectable by the day.

And George Washington continues to show signs of life with its third straight A-10 victory.

That's about it for positives. Alabama's off to almost as bad a conference start as us, North Florida is falling apart (four straight losses), and Howard, Loyola, Southern Illinois and UMES simply are lost causes.

Even UTEP, a young team that showed signs of breaking through against us, merely is a perfectly mediocre .500 overall and in conference play.
