A good idea, IMHO. Some teams who never go on the road for OOC games will have to rethink that strategy.

+1. Agreed. Good luck to Syracuse.

More on this:

The committee previously defined a quality win as any victory over a team with an RPI rank from 1 to 50. Now, it has changed the definition of quality win to mean one that comes at home against an opponent ranked 1 to 30, at a neutral site over a foe ranked 1 to 50 or on the road versus a team ranked 1 to 75.

I like it.  The question is how many more A10 teams will probably get a shot at a power team (assuming this were to influence scheduling behavior as planned) that wouldn't have before?

I still believe that the best thing would be to also throw in some sort of computerized scheduling to inject a bit of randomness, but this is still a good start.

I state unequivocally that this change will not diminish our chance for a bid
