Seriously. Why are we scheduling RPI 200+ teams?


I know the answer, to get home opponents for cheap. But man, we basically have to win two extra ACC games to overcome our terrible OOC RPI, and that's a tall order with this conference schedule.

If I were Buzz, I'd schedule the nearest seven Atlantic 10 schools at nearby neutral sites (Roanoke, Richmond D.C., Charlotte, W-S, etc) every year, and offer to split the gate 50/50 with the opposing team. If we are a tourney team, we should win at least 5 of those games, our OOC RPI would be incredible, and revenue is probably no worse than playing South Alabama or whoever in front of 2000 fans in Cassell.
