I agree, except they did that last year. One or two semi-heavies would be

good. Now with the RPI they don't get big wins unless they win at Arizona, USC, Oregon or UCLA. All those road wins last year didn't help them (except Oregon).

CSU, Yale are games that could help if they can have a good season. The Myrtle Beach tourney has some potential for playing a 2nd Quadrant or better team.

These will all be Quadrant 4 with one maybe being Quadrant 3.

UC Riverside--decent program, but it won't help much
Grambling---PAC12 has agreement with their league, so that's okay, but playing there doesn't make sense, especially if they can pull off an upset. But, it does help their league because SWAC can't usually get home games with P5 teams.
Northern Colorado--makes sense, in state team, sell more tickets maybe
Northern Alabama--how about home and home with Northwestern (decent but not a sure loss)
Southern Utah---Why? Play Nebraska or Iowa.

Georgetown wasn't dealing with any of that. The polls just voted on what they wanted and didn't factor schedule in as much in those days.
