We picked up two more spots in the NET after this weekend's games. Up to 73. Dayton's at #18 and Richmond is still in the top 75.
If we hadn’t blown the game at SBU, then we’d be getting a good number of votes in both polls. We’d be one of the hottest teams in the country with a 9 game win streak and a win over a top 20 team.We picked up 4 votes in the Coaches Poll for top 25! Kind of surprising to see.

You forgot that we should have beaten current #10 Iowa State.sigh

There is another list of all time VCU regrets, but that's a different conversation...
It's kind of nice to see our NET continue to climb despite not playing any games. Up to 72 now.
I think there needs to be a "let them play" factor in Torvik. When neither team can shoot the ball effectively because both are allowed to play with extreme physicality. That is going to stifle offensive efficiency. That game was a perfect example of why in some games I wish they wouldn't "let them play" quite so much.And that's why we only moved up 4 spots...something tells me the NET formula puts more weight on offensive efficiency than defensive efficiency. Our Torvik AdjDE for the Dayton game was 69.2 (which is extremely good), but our AdjOE was 87.0 (which is really poor) - our lowest in a win all season and our lowest period since that horrific Vanderbilt game.
