...the Mountain West Conference?
Goes to show you why never to trust just one measure.
According to Teamrankings
Mountain West Conference: .584
Big Ten: .583
That's a difference of .001. I bet you they couldn't wait to release this story once it was official. I guess that means someone from that conference will be hanging a banner then. Team for team the Big Ten is better, next question.
Insert witty remark
To be fair, they do admit that the B10 is better and deserves to be #1.
Why would anyone downvote this? +1 to cancel it out
That's why they play s tournament.We'll see come April. My guess you'll have a team from The B1G, The ACC, The Big 12 and a surprise team probably not from MWC.GO BUCKS!
I wish I didn't know now what I didn't know then.
Totally. The RPI means very little. That's why I think it's not smart when the media focus so much on just the RPI.
The chairman of the NCAA tournament committee even said on national TV a few years ago that the committee doesn't even look at RPI when making decisions about who to let in the tourney.
They had a show on BTN that talked about the selection process and had people who were formerly on the selection committee and they said that ESPN and other media had blown the use of the RPI out of proportion
RPI blah!...Again, nobody knows better than Vegas. I'd love to see what odds they would put on a team by team match-up between the top several teams in the B1G and Mountain West.
I tend to go with Vegas but really......

Big ten is the best
The Mountain West finished the regular season on top of the conference RPI rankings somehow. I admit I do not understand how the RPI works.
The B1G's non-conference winning % is higher than the Mountain West's and is second only to the Big East.
The SEC finished in 8th place, one spot below the Atlantic 10. It is the lowest ranked major conference.
Really peculiar information.
