If half the teams we want to lose keep losing, we might be in good shape.

I think Alabama needs to be listed. I know the RPI isn't worthy but 6-2 in the SEC
Is a stat that needs to decrease or the RPI is going to take care of itself. We might need to beat them to make it.

They'd have to go 8-2 over their final 10 to have a good chance...

They've got Arkansas, Kentucky and South Carolina still ahead...they're not eliminated but their margin of error is very small.

You don't think 13-5 gets them in?

12-6 would even give them a shot imo.

Conference record isn't all that important when they would have zero top 50 wins and a pretty average SOS...Georgia went 12-6 and got left out a couple years ago.

8-2 and they'd be in, 7-3 and I don't think they're a lock by any means but would have themselves on the bubble.

Any idea what 7-3 would put their RPI at?

Projected at 51, which with their SOS would hardly be a lock.

Thanks. I think that would be good enough but I respect the other side.
