With the assumption that we don't win the west, what is the general consensus on how high our RPI can be and still host, 1) Host a Super, 2) Host a Regional?
If we don't win the West, then I think we'd have to be 12 or better to be in consideration for a top 8 seed. If we get 18 wins, we're hosting a regional, and I think our RPI would be the teens going into the SEC tournament. Might get one with 17, but it would be dicey, as I think our RPI would be in the 20s (tournament could possibly bump it a little). You never want to count on tournament play to make a difference because it often doesn't, but, occasionally, the committee will use tournament results to justify their seeding.
I don't think so at all. I seriously doubt if we get 18 SEC wins that our RPI will be in the teens. More likely 25-30. Although as others have pointed out, it matters which of our 6 games we win. Therefore I don't think it's a lock that we will host if we get to 18 wins, and it's actually more likely that we will be a 2 seed.
18 wins is a top 20 RPI and a lock to host, book it.
You are dreaming. You think if we go 1-2 vs State and 3-0 vs Ole Miss we are in the top 20?? We won't be top 20 if we go 2-1 vs each team.
We might be right at 20, but we will be top 20 and hosting if we are 18-12 in the SEC. Watch.
We are at # 22 now. Dropped 3 spots tonight after Georgia loss. It's a formula, not a coaches or sportswriter's vote. You can't add 2 + 2 to = 5.

Edit: Correct on Hoover, as it can only help our RPI.
We'll see, I know Kendall Rogers has said 18 wins gets us a host spot easily
This is what he said, focus on the very last part....."if the RPI is in the 20-25 range"

"Having your RPI drop down to 24 because of one loss isn't optimal, but the Aggies are sitting at 14 SEC wins with two weekends to go. If A&M wins both of those series and is sitting at 18 league wins entering the SEC tournament, I find it very hard to believe they wouldn't be a Top 16 host, at minimum, even if the RPI is in the 20-25 range."
What's your point? He said we will be hosting even if the RPI drops. I personally think it won't if we win our last two series plus Hoover coming up after that, but at the end of the day I don't care what the RPI is as long as we are hosting.
You are putting words in his mouth. I don't care what the RPI is either as long as we host, but the guys that select who is hosting do care. The committee will have a hard time selecting a team to host that has an RPI at 25 or above. I do not think it has ever happened.
Our RPI will not be above 25 if we finish 18-12 in the SEC (I am taking into account the games in Hoover too by they way).

Nolan has his website updated with his prediction that if we go 18-12 by virtue of sweeping Miss. St. and taking 1 of 3 against Ole Miss that our RPI rank would be #27 to end the regular season. Winning both series 2-1 would give us a lower ranking. I don't think 27 would be high enough to host, so we would most likely need to win a game or two in Hoover.


Any predictions for end of season rpi should be pretty much ignored. They will be based upon one very specific circumstance which will have a very low chance of happening. Plus, this evening predictions would not include conference tourney games.

It does have a low chance of happening, however if we finish 18-12 this is the best scenario for our RPI. Any other scenario where we end up 18-12, including 2-1 in both series will leave us with a higher RPI. Anything above 18-12 and we are hosting a super. Correct that it doesn't include Hoover, and it may very well include playing IW.

RPI can't be predicted, there are literally 1,000's of factors that will play out this weekend and next (not to mention conference tournament weekend after that). We are in a very good spot right now, relax and enjoy the show.

It can't be predicted???? It sounds like it upsets you when someone makes a prediction that you don't like. If we were "in a very good spot right now", we would not have cancelled the IW game. As Scholss said, "it's all about RPI".

I'm saying we are in a very good spot right now taking into account that we aren't playing the IW game, tied for 2nd in the West and 3rd in the SEC right now is indeed a very good spot by the way. And yes it can't be predicted, every game our opponents play and their opponents play factor into what the RPI is going to do over the next 2-3 weeks. To say Warren Nolan says that if we do "x" we will be "y" is based on one set of factors and not the literally 1,000's that will come into play. I do predict we will host at 18-12 in the SEC because that is what history says will happen.

I assume Va Tech, they are #7 and basically a lock to host and it feels like the group of 10-30 is very tightly bunched so having Louisville lose would make them fall a bit most likely

Louisville will really have to screw things up to not host at this point.

Clemson vs Virginia and Miami vs Florida State are probably more consequential to A&M right now than the Louisville vs Virginia Tech series

Need Miami to take care of business and it'd be great if Clemson could pull off a couple of wins

Awful luck for VaTech there -- a dropped 3rd strike that hits the batter's back leg and caroms nearly all the way to the dugout... Runner scores all the way from 2B and batter advances all the way to 2B on the pass.

Now 2-1 Louisville in still top 6th.

So Georgia loses again to Tennessee and improves their RPI by two spots.

Something is wrong when you are rewarded for losing. And penalized for winning.

The good news is that Georgia most likely can't host with that losing conference record and we beat Vandy head to head so gotta think we have an edge their too unless they sweep Arky (but then we have a clear edge over the pigs)

And that begs the question, why is Georgia's RPI better than ours with a worse conference record than us? And we won the series in Athens?

It is illogical that an actual win is worse for your RPI than a conference loss against a high ranked team. And we have zero control over the conference schedule.

Georgia's still got a series vs Mizzou to get back ahead in the sec standings. Maybe not national seed caliber, but I can see 16-14 still being a regional host with their resume.

Georgia will host if they are a top 12 RPI team. They are not going to getting penalized for their losses to UT in Knoxville. They will get penalized if they lose at home next weekend to Mizzou. Reason why we needed Georgia to win this weekend and not UT, it just helps our RPI which we need.

I prefer having a better SEC record than the Dawgs on top of our series win over them. I don't expect Mizzou to help with that.

I disagree, I think we are in contention with Georgia for one of the SEC's national seeds (probably of 3).

Vols are a lock, Arkansas is a probably, and then it's us, Georgia, Auburn and LSU competing for the last spot.

I agree and think that's the correct way to look at it. Add Vandy to the second group of 4 IMO even if their chances are slim. Their RPI is already top 3 and they finish with Pig and LSU. Sweep both and they are in the discussion and importantly, LSU and maybe Pig are removed. Fun times.

And now let's BTHO Clanga!

LOL exactly, people on here are so reactionary to everything all the time...we will be exactly where we are supposed to be when all the cards are dealt after the conference tournament. Tracking RPI daily is like watching your 401k daily, total waste of time.

No, for us to be in contention for a National Seed we have to sweep State and then go at least 2-1 against Ole Miss. If we do, we are in as a top 8 and if we don't it doesn't matter what Georgia does.

Sure, I would prefer to have a better record than UGA but my comments are selfish and based solely upon us hosting a regional. If we sweep State we have very little to worry about. If we don't, then we have to be very concerned about our RPI. UGA beating UT helps our RPI and helps our chances of hosting. Again, my comments are all about hosting a regional.

Arkansas is not a probably for a national seed right now.

Vanderbilt is 100% in the conversation. If they win either one of their two remaining series, I think they're a lock to host and will have an outside chance at a national seed. Although, they'd do well to win a couple games in Hoover to help out their resume

With 2 out in the top of the 9th, we've moved up to 19 in the RPI. I got nuthin'…the RPI is a strange beast.
