"When Denver's name went on the board as a bubble team, we thought, 'Geez, that bodes well for us,' because if you're talking about strength of schedule, quality wins and a top-five win, we're just like them," he said. "But I felt like if their name didn't go up on the board, that it was more about RPI than all of those criteria about strength of schedule, quality wins and also wins on the road. … When it came to that, I felt like we were in great shape. If not, I thought that Cornell and Fairfield probably had a little bit of an edge in RPI and a little bit of an edge in head-to-head over Denver, and I thought they were probably going to go in with Princeton. I felt like when they went in, there was a split in rationale as to why Princeton went in more RPI-based and why Denver went in. It's a little bit confusing, but I know that the selection committee is a very complicated process itself."
