funny that you single out Rice.

ASU was slightly better than Rice in the NCAA RPI - see link.

After losing the first game of the Conf USA post season tournament, Rice came back through the ladder and in the championship game, beat U Houston in extra innings. Really dramatic, etc. Also, Rice's best player - Anthony Rendon - who may go #1 or #2 in the amateur draft this year - was hampered this season by a shoulder and ankle injuries. This is not the typical Rice team - with at least 2 solid starters and a strong bull pen - but they managed to prevail.

But what doesn't make sense to me is that their strength of schedule - per Boyds - is merely 47th. ASU's SOS is #5. Arkansas is #42.

So - it is what it is - no love for the West Coast. lets just show up at game time.
