With the exception of Pepperdine and Colorado State this schedule is pretty much a box of cupcakes.

Jordan who couldn't even get a degree from a real college doesn't know diddly about RPI.

Only two ways to get onto the NCAA's one win the conference auto bid or an excellent RPI.

Most WAC coach of past obviously count solely on winning the auto, the WAC isn't known for having great RPI's with the exception of Hawaii who has it down to a fine art.

The RIP isn't a very good forward looking tool because a team who finished with a good RPI last year doesn't mean that they will repeat that RPI his year,examples in the PAC 12.

RPI can be a crap shoot.a lot of it can be luck as we witnessed with the Aggie's baseball team this year.

With Hawaii gone from the WAC the WAC Championship is up for grabs ,Idaho,Utah State,should have very good teams.Texas State could be a serious dark horse.The rest of the incoming teams in the WAC are not what you could call great programs from a national standpoint.

On the national level the WAC this year will become a bigger bore than it has been in the past.No one will be interested in what is going on in the WAC.It was Hawaii who brought national attention to the WAC in this sport like Boise State did for football.
