Falling RPI..............

After last night's loss to North Dakota State, Tom Crean's squad went into a free fall in the RPI ratings .... or perhaps they should be called the RIP ratings. The ratings are located to the right of this page.

Personally, I believe this loss might not be the worst thing in the world. MU has been dodging bullets all year and expectations have been crazy. A little return to earth may be just what the doctor ordered. This also assures Marquette will be the underdog against Wisconsin this Saturday which is a position I would rather be in.

crummy loss......until MU finds a shooter or two, watch out.

I didn't realize that NDSU's RPI was so high. Guess I am rooting for them to win a bunch more games now.

I was thinking the same thing regarding "a shooter." And then NDSU has Mike Nelson, a former teammate of Wes Matthews at Madison Memorial and Mr. Basketball who was ignored by both Marquette and Wisconsin. It would be nice to have a guy like that in the lineup right now.
