That's fair. There's a bit of a show-us stance with regard to the Gee-Gees, who are 10-2 overall but are still looking for a big road win. In a larger sense, any CIS hoopophiles who love a debate must be loving the variance between the coaches' poll, the weekly ratings at cishoops.ca and the Cheers RPI. The RPI ratings might be a bit skewed, since it's still early season and the sample sizes are small. The RPI also doesn't account for exhibition games played against NCAA schools; Concordia in particular in hurt by this.
- No. 2 UBC, also No. 2 at cishoops.ca, is 10th in RPI;
- No. 10 Alberta, coming off a weekend sweep at Calgary, is still 2nd in RPI
- OUA East teams Ottawa and Toronto are in the Also Receiving Votes zone of the official pool, but are 5th and 7th in RPI
