The NCAA does not use the ESPN created BPI

A betting site's odds definitely don't matter. And the freaking S curve stops at 68 because it goes to seed the games, not everyone considered. You just throw crap at the wall to see what fits your agenda.

If you want to just cherry pick stats, how about KenPom, which at least the NCAA has referenced in the past at pretty respectable 66 or even the the famous RPI (less ridiculous than you using BPI), that actually is an NCAA metric although they don't use it any more for basketball but still do for every other sport, which is 14 with a SOS of 49.

That SOS is probably closer to what the NCAA uses as that metric than what ESPN does, although KenPom's SOS is the same as ESPN's. That said, a SOS of 105 is still in the top third and not that bad.

We get it, you are going to find every little thing to knock CSU down with this. We don't know how it's going to pan out, but you know what? The numbers across the board really aren't that bad and CSU is in pretty good shape whether you like it or not.
