    Don't believe the hype, the B1G is still BIG!!!

    Yes, the B1G is lacking in star power, but no other conference in the nation has as many RPI Top 100 rated teams, with 11. And only the Big 12 has as many RPI Top 50 rated teams. And the crazy thing about this fact, is that the Ken-Pom, Massey, Sagarin and BPI ratings ALL show alot more...

    All Things Daily RPI Updates Thread

    DOWN GOES BELMONT!!! This helps our RPI for sure Minnesota beats Wisconsin - definitely an RPI boost. Ohio State beats Nthwstrn - This isn't horrible for us, might give us a better chance for a bigger upset, or make the loss to them not look so bad, but we played NW twice, so had they held...

    Off topic - but just gotta say, WOW, Thomas Vanek DOMINATES the NHL so far!!!

    with 21 total points after tonight, he's 4 pts ahead of the next best player. Before tonight he was tied for 1st in assists and was 2nd in goals. Now he's 1st in goals and WAY ahead in points. He could go pointless for 2 games and still probably be in 1st or close to it. Nice to see a...

    Except for NDSU, all things going Gopher's Resume Way, so far!!!

    Damned NDSU. Former Gopher opponents were having a perfect night so far, especially the Illinois upset of Indiana. Will keep Illinois in the Top 50 and will possibly be what keeps them headed to the NCAA tourney. Also shows that Indiana can be beat, and we should expect to give them a run when...

    So far, another GREAT day for UMn's RPI Resume.

    No big upsets today, but the only losses our former opponents suffered were vs our former opponents. FSU lost to Duke, which was expected, and even losing to them will help their RPI a little. Duke beat FSU. Lafayette lost to American. American beat Lafayette Richmond wins a big game Memphis...

    VERY good night 4 Gopher's RPI ranking! USC upsets UCLA, Stanford upsets Oregon, etc

    USC scores a huge upset over UCLA & Stanford scores a very big upset over Oregon. Florida St scores a big upset over Maryland. All 3 teams winning helps, but playing 3 quality opponents with very good records helps even more. Memphis also wins Lafayette also wins Toledo also wins So 6 wins...

    Don't worry Gopher fans, EVERYONE in the Top 8 that played tonight, LOST!!!

    Except for Miami of Ohio, but that's their only win in the last 5 games, so unless we lose again tomorrow, our #1 ranking might hold. Strange though, Quinipiac seems to have quite playing hockey?! They didn't play last week, and don't seem to be scheduled to play this weekend, either? We are #2...

    #82 Richmond upsets greatest coach ever, SHAKA SMART's #19 VCU team.

    Too funny, the poster child for the Fire Tubby Club, LOSES to a team rated WORSE than NW in the RPI. LOL, Tubby has to be the worst coach in the world because the Gophers lose to NW, yet Shaka Smart couldn't coach his #19 ranked team past a lowly #82 ranked Richmond team, that Tubby WAS able...

    Not even playing today, our RESUME is looking better!

    A team, like the Gophers, this late into the year, can rarely have a perfect Saturday without even playing, if ever even, but so far this day has been good to the Gophers. Some of these things may seem insignificant, but when a former opponent is ranked #99 in the RPI, it is significant...

    Bandwagon fans EXPOSED!!! I love twitter, it lets people show off how...

    I don't know, how big of bandwagon fans they are? How stupid they are? How little they know about sports? How fairweather Minnesota fans are in general? I love twitter, for alot of reasons, but just wait until your favorite team goes down by 20 and just read the bandwagoners last jabs before...

    I gaurantee that Minnesota will be ranked #1 after the Michigan game...

    in the STRENGTH OF SCEDULE rankings. Seriously, we are #2 right now and are playing a Top 10 rated team?! I think we'll have a solid lock on #1 in the SOS. Gotta think our RPI will look pretty good as well, especially if we win the game.

    UMn - #2 - #9 in the various polls vs ? for Michigan

    Looking at Minnesota in the various polls and how we compare to Michigan and btw, I put #2 - #9 in the title because I do not recognize the validity of the coaches poll. Name me a single coach who has time to pay any attention to any cbb teams besides his own and his next opponents team. AP...

    Calling all Gopher fans! U should go 2 ESPN & vote 4 Gophers as Greatest FB Dynasty I know alot of people think these things are silly, but it wouldn't take much time to do it, and Minnesota is in 7th place right now, but if all the GHers went there and voted, UMn could move up to maybe even...

    Got Question about Title of forum - Why is it 7 National Titles FB Forum, and not...

    Ok, now that the season is over, I want to ask this question of anyone in the know, or of anyone who simply has an opinion on the subject. Why is the title of this forum, "7 National Titles Football Forum"? The AP recognizes 4 Titles for Minnesota. Most sites, sports almanacs, etc., list 6...
