    Other non-conference games left...

    217 Portland State
    48 Texas Tech
    288 Morehead State
    158 Mercer
    247 New Hampshire
    24 St. Joe's
    82 LSU

    9 out of 14 non-conference games against teams ranked less than 100, giving us a schedule-strength of 194.

    Taking the remaining games against teams ranked lower than 100 and assuming victory gives us 16 wins.

    With that low of a schedule strength we're gonna need to win more than just a couple of the other games to make the tourney (20 at the minimum with a couple good wins), but seems like the NIT is the very worst that could happen.

    the computer models (Sagarin, RPI, etc) are all pretty wild early in the season. Around about the 10th game is when things start to become bigger than a win or loss against a single opponent, ie Saint Joe's is riding off their game against Kansas to get that high of a ranking.

    Sagrin is a nice tool for predicting who will win a game, but I prefer It is very close to the actual RPI used by the NCAA selection committee. Note, the RPI is not posted this early in the season.

    I don't think 10 games into the season is enough either. You may or may not have played anyone at that point, had injuries or other issues. Since your strength of schedule is largely determined by your conference games, I would wait until 1/2 way, or at least 1/3 of the way into the conference season to really pay attention to these rankings.
