    Cindy, I read your article on the initial RPI today. Had UH lost to Riverside (or Fullerton for that matter), its RPI rank would have been in the high 50s instead of 47. While I appreciate how bad a loss against Riverside would be optically, historically, emotionally, etc., mathematically/RPI-wise, it is not the hope-killing low you made it out to be (unless you define much higher or lower as ~10 RPI spots in the 40s/50s range).

    Where I would agree on the devastation of the loss is in two situations:
    (1) UH fails to earn the AQ and must have its resume evaluated by the committee. A loss to Riverside (or Fullerton) would have been very bad in that situation, and would probably make UH a bubble team. You’d rather the loss come to a Poly, rather than to a bad RPI team.

    (2) Placement in the bracket, regardless of whether UH earned the AQ. A Riverside (or Fullerton or CSUN or LBSU or UCSB) loss would not help place UH in a favorable subregional. There are geographic and scheduling considerations that could temper this situation, but I wouldn’t hold my breath.

    Hope the wahines camp out on Ruddens the whole match. She is that good. Make the rest of the team try and beat them.

    Thanks Maverick, I appreciate your clear analysis of where we are at. I am looking forward to seeing Ruddens play. Does this remind you of anyone? “When she is good, she is very, very good, and when she is bad, she is horrid.” Loved the Dickenson analogies in todays Star/Ad.

    Charles Dickens is who I meant to say, I do love Emily D. but I am just digging myself deeper.

    new thread up.
    Nothing really to add on Dig Pink Saturday
    Fans encouraged to wear pink
    Pink apparel on sale at the H-Zone.

    1.as you mention, losing would have been devastating in many respects, which was my point.
    never said anything about bracket placement.
    4.-6, Yes Charles and not Emily. But glad you enjoyed it.
