2011-12 NCAA Tournament Tracker (in progress)

Here is one of many tools I will use to track the world of College Basketball in their four month pursuit of the Field of 68.  This one is simple.  I have listed out roughly 100 teams that right now I see having a shot at an at-large berth or having a resume that would consider them a quality win.  This schedule will list out the wins against teams that are also on this schedule, which should equate closely to Top 100 RPI wins.  It is simply a way to assess quality wins.  I will also note whether the game was at home (H), away (A) or neutral (N).  The tracker will be flexible with additions and subtractions for surprise over and under achievers.  Please note:  The second record shown is only against teams on this list.

Saturday(18):  West Virginia at South Florida, St. Louis at Duquesne, Pittsburgh at Connecticut, Oklahoma State at Kansas State, Washington at UCLA, St. Bonaventure at LaSalle, Georgetown at Marquette, Cincinnati at Villanova, Southern Miss at Marshall, Northwestern at Iowa, Colorado at Oregon State, Alabama at Mississippi, Louisville at Syracuse, Arkansas at Mississippi State, North Carolina at Duke, Baylor at Iowa State, Texas at Kansas, Wyoming at UNLV

  1. This is a great website to read. Thanks for sharing your college sports knowledge with us.

  2. Thanks for your nice comment. Sports is my passion and this has given me the avenue to share some of this passion with others.

    If you wouldn't mind, post or email me with how you found my blog and any suggestions you have for future content. And feel free to tell friends about it!!

  3. Why is UCLA listed under quality wins? I notice 14 teams on here can claim them as a quality win.

  4. UCLA is rated in the top 70 of the Sagarin Ratings which qualifies them to be part of the Jabesblog 100. There are obviously different degrees of a quality win, but the purpose of this schedule is to give people a one-stop shop of who teams have beaten from a hybrid Top 100 of the RPI and Sagarin. Oklahoma State, Villanova, Maryland and UCLA are the four teams whose records are not good, but 44 of their combined 47 losses have come to teams on this list, meaning they are losing to good teams.
