That is interesting. I had thought UW had a pretty solid non-conference schedule, and are 2-3 vs. Top 25 opponents (I assume that is at the time of the game). As mentioned in another thread, the RPI has some flaws and I'm guessing will even out over the season. Badgers wins over Tennessee, Georgetown, Syracuse, Oklahoma and Marquette in the non-conference aren't looking all that impressive at this point.
