The Crimson Tide are one of the more interesting cases right now: They're 10-2 in the SEC West, but have an incredibly low RPI with just two decent wins (Kentucky, at Tennessee). They also went 8-6 against an incredibly weak non-conference schedule (282nd in the nation), with losses to Seton Hall, Providence and St. Peter's. They might need to pick up an upset win at Florida on March 1. Best win:
Kentucky (RPI: 15) Worst loss:
(N) Iowa (RPI: 157) Mitigating factor:
If you believe in cosmic retribution, Alabama won't get in after one of its fans poisoned some historic trees at Auburn
Out. That RPI is going to be too low for the Crimson Tide to make it.
