ďI think itís time to take a good look at the RPI at all levels. Has it become antiquated for current day? (Does) it get artificially inflated in certain leagues or certain parts of the country (and) doesnít benefit other parts of the country? Are we rewarding teams that are going out and trying their very best to schedule well, yet their geography might limit them to a certain degree?
ďYou can only play so many midweek games. We donít have a lot of opportunities to play midweek games, to get on a bus, that are relatively affordable. Weíve got to get on airplanes (to) go play midweek games. Thatís tough. So I think there can be a very robust, productive conversation around the RPI, and I welcome that and look forward to that happening.
ďIím disappointed that more teams in the West (didnít make it). I think that the two teams in our conference (ASU and USC) were deserving of getting in. Itís a hard one for (UC) Irvine as well. Thatís a tough blow not to get into the tournament for the record they had (38-17) and the kind of club they had and the kind of year they had.
