The computer rankings sort of agree, but not quite.

Sagarin-
XU #13
URI #25
UD #36
Duq #40
Umass #48
SJU #60
Temp #83

RPI
UD #11
XU #16
UMass #19
URI #21
Temp #48
SJU #54
Duq #59

Either way, the A10 has at least 5 teams in the top 60, which is unusual for us.

The strength of schedule is very different for the two. It's nice the ratings agree. The Sagarin SOS, in particular, takes into account margin of victory of your opponents - but in the end, the Sagarin ratings are highly regarded and right now pretty well agree with RPIs and both show a strong A-10.

Sagarin's predictor ratings are actually his most accurate (at least according to Jeff Sagarin) ratings for comparing teams. Here is the A-10 breakdown on predictor ratings:

Xavier - 10
Duquesne - 33
Rhode Island - 37
St. Joe's - 53
Dayton - 62
UMass - 66
Temple - 85
Charlotte - 99
Everyone else - Too painful to think about

In any event, the predictors are a bit more positive for Xavier, but much worse for the rest of the conference.
