            Home loss against a team with an rpi of 49 is a "quadrant 2 loss" this year
            There is a new tweak in the way the NCAA tournament selection committee views road and neutral wins.

              Where does it indicate what a "quadrant 2 loss" means in the terms of rankings?

                Obviously that statement was patently false. But it did get me to thinking about the fact that WSU pretty much ONLY loses big games.

                It ain't that easy to straight up never lose to teams not in the Top 50. And everyone has been sure to remind that WSU has played an awful lot of those opportunities. It has been popular for media hacks and P5 fans to assert that WSU would finish in the middle of the pack in better leagues. It's likely that the closer reality is that you couldn't find more than a couple of teams that would actually go 68-4 against WSU's league schedule the past 4 seasons. Ironically, one of those teams is probably Gonzaga.

                  And don't even get me started on the margin of victory by WSU in those wins.

                  • Was KU’s loss considered “ neutral court?” It seems teams from Pacific Northwest have not been kind to KU at the Sprint center of late.

                      Probably need to form a committee to discuss changing conferences.

                        Washington won't be 49 by the end of the year

                          But they're only 49 because they beat KU, right? Doesn't seem quite right. They didn't lose to a 49 team yesterday.

                            Jamar, can you break the above down to top 25 and top 50? Thanks either way for the above post..

                              He means KP #100 and above - as in worse, not better.

                              There are only three sports: bullfighting, motor racing, and mountaineering; all the rest are merely games.
