Can someone explain to me how the University of Tennessee can have an RPI of #7 in the country, tops in the SEC, and they're no where to be found in the ESPN/USA Today top 25? They barely snuck into the top 25 in the AP poll. Last year the SEC got a lot of schools into the tournament (7?) and had two in the final 4. An SEC team also ended up winning both the NCAA and the NIT. What gives?

I'm not saying they deserve to be in the top ten but how 'bout at least the top 20 or 25? Depending on how they do in the SEC tournament, they could be in line for a #2 seed and not even be ranked in one of the national polls.
