It's almost as if the Frogs are playing two different seasons at the same time right now. Their midweek non-conference games, especially those against Big 12 schools, are their path to improving their RPI ranking and possibly earning a #1 seed in the tournament or even hosting a regional as they did a year ago. Then on the weekends, their games mean little to their RPI (unless they lose...), but are their only way to winning yet another regular-season MWC title.
