Conference USA Updated RPI

Ok, its official. I have no idea how the RPI rankings work. I mean, I know the formula. I just don't understand the way things played out over the last week. Memphis fell seven spots after a loss to no. 1 (rpi) Georgetown, and two wins. Marshall jumped 38 spots after beating no. 121, and no. 294, and So. Miss dropped nearly 40 spots after two wins versus sub 200 teams. I'm completely lost here. It doesn't make sense, but then again the forces that rule college athletics rarely make sense. Here are the RPI rankings for all Conference USA teams. 

 

  1. UCF             RPI     21
  2. Memphis                62
  3. UAB                      66
  4. Marhsall                 79
  5. Southern Miss        81
  6. UTEP                     90
  7. Tulsa                     124
  8. Rice                      160
  9. East Carolina         204
  10. Tulane                   255
  11. Houston                258
  12. SMU             `       309

The conference as a whole remained the same as the 11th best conference in the nation. We now have 6 teams in the top 100 compare to 4 last week, but a couple of those teams are moving the wrong direction. If a couple of these teams can come up with some big time wins this week, this will look much better next week . We'll just have to wait and see what happens.
