He was a great distributor.
Okay, I'm as big a UVA fan as they come and even I know that was hilarious.
...so why am I still crying?

lol why did I even post this?
I am sick & tired of people referring to RPI all the time. It is flawed. Need to actually examine resumes before making bubble decisions.
@GoodmanCBS The selection committee uses the RPI. So why shouldn't folks refer to it in an attempt to predict what the committee might do?
@GoodmanCBS Two things: 1) KenPom isn't RPI. 2) To use something is to rely on something. (God you sound dumb an awful lot.)
@GaryParrishCBS The RPI is in the room. Does not mean that the committee members use it. It's available to them.
@GoodmanCBS When the committee talks about top 50 and 100 wins they're referencing the RPI. They ABSOLUTELY use it. Indirectly but always.
@GaryParrishCBS How do you know what each individual committee member uses?
@GoodmanCBS You're moving the goalposts. We can debate to what degree it's used. All I said is that it's absolutely and always used.
@GaryParrishCBS I will move the goalposts if I want to. In fact, I love moving goalposts.
@GoodmanCBS And that the RPI is dumb isn't an excuse not to reference it. The electoral college is dumb. But it's used. So it's important.
@GaryParrishCBS Stop arguing and go ask yourself some questions or something.
@GaryParrishCBS Trying to argue with you if just like trying to argue with Memphis fans. Not logical. Oh, now I understand.
Tough to know for sure what committee members take from the RPI altogether. Some might look at the overall rank. I think some also just use it to look at things like SOS and vs top __ records.
Belmont beats Tennessee St, just one more win over Murray State or Eastern Kentucky to lock up the auto bid. Akron falls to Kent State, their miniscule chances of an at-large are gone. Wichita State beats Missouri State, Shockers should be good but a loss here would have made it interesting.

Minnesota getting slammed late at Purdue. They've got great RPI type numbers and a huge recent win over Indiana, but man, they're one shitty B1G first round game from some nerves on Selection Sunday.
Providence up a deuce with under a minute on UConn. Would be huge.
Friars come up short in OT. Iowa State is destroying WVU in Morgantown. LaSalle and St. Louis are tight in the first half, would be a huge win for the Explorers if they can get it.
Go away, KA!
I'll take Tubby!
Iowa, Arkansas, and Ole Miss handling business early on.
Finally you would get the coach you truly deserve.
La Salle gets smoked 78-54 at Saint Louis. They could be in trouble with a Quarterfinal loss in Atlantic City
San Diego State-Boise State just tipped off on NBC Sports. Mizzou-Tennessee (ESPN) and Arizona State-Arizona tip at 4.
USF up on Cincy at Cincy. Those 8-win major conference teams aren't helping themselves.
Oregon gets beat by double digits at 13-17 Utah. Still probably safe, but their RPI is going to be sub-50.
Bama up big on Georgia. Mizzou and Tenn tied at the half.
Boise State still up four against SDSU.
Boise up 5 with 2 to go
So yea, 5 from the Mountain West
Forgot how many transfers Missouri had on their roster.. Frank Haith and Fred Hoiberg competing for the most transfers in the country.
Cincy down three with a minute to go AT HOME against RPI #133 South Florida.
classlessthug: I have too much on my plate to worry about the fact that my junk intimidates some needle D undergrad.
GREAT FUCKING JOB PRESSEY
ZOMG BAMA BUZZER-BEATER FROM BEYOND HALF COURT
OU is likely in anyway, but being down 24 @TCU is pretty pathetic.
RGodIII making an appearance in Waco.
And Baylor probly has to win today to have any chance at an at large. Lose today and its most likely auto bid or bust.
Pretty awesome watching shit Tennessee and Cincinnati wrap up bids!
