Louisville is currently ranked #39 in the RPI (Ratings Percentage Index), a tool used by the NCAA Tournament Selection Committee (AKA "Friends of Joey Brackets") to determine seeding. Over the next 41 days, U of L plays WVU (#14) twice, UConn (#3) twice plus at Georgetown (#8), at Notre Dame (#11), home vs. Syracuse (#7) and home vs. Pittsburgh (#5).

That means eight of U of L's twelve remaining regular season games are against RPI Top 15 teams. The other four remaining conference games are home vs. DePaul (#219), at Cincinnati (#38), at Rutgers (#101), and Senior Night at home vs. Providence (#103).

According to the RPI, Louisville has just  three wins over teams currently in the RPI Top 50: at home vs. St. John's (#24), at home vs. UNLV (#30) and at home vs. Butler (#40). The next highest RPI win was at home over Marquette, ranked #61.

Louisville's four losses, using RPI rankings, were at Villanova (#9), at home vs. Kentucky (#13), at home vs. Drexel (#64) and at Providence (#103).

The heroes that run are predicting Louisville to finish 22-9 (11-7), which would surely be enough to solidify an NCAA Tournament bid. This predictor includes upsets over WVU at home, Pitt at home and UConn at home.

So what does all this mean? Clearly, the KFC Yum! Center is our basketball team's beef helmet.
