2006-07 Clemson vs. 2007-08 Miami

Many comparisons are being made to last year's Clemson team to this year's Miami team. It is weird that both teams happen to be in the ACC.

2006-07 ratings are from http://kenpom.com/rpi.php?y=2007
2007-08 ratings are from http://proxy.espn.go.com/ncb/rpi

Here is what I found:

2006-07 Clemson:
  • Won Pre-season Tournament (Cox Communication Classic)
  • Started out 17-0
  • Next 5 games after first loss: 1-4
  • Good wins: Old Dominion (neutral, RPI: 39); Appalachian State (RPI: 62); Mississippi State (RPI: 64); Georgia (RPI: 63); Florida State (road, RPI: 41);  Georgia Tech (RPI: 52); North Carolina State (road, RPI: 90); Boston College (RPI: 32); Florida State (RPI: 41); Virginia Tech (road, RPI: 34)
  • Bad loss: Wake Forest (road, PRI: 122)
  • ACC Tournament: lost in first round (Florida State 67-66)
  • RPI: 46
  • SOS: 50
  • Non-Conference RPI: 28
  • Non-Conference SOS: 214
  • Record against RPI top 50: 5-7
  • Last 10: 3-7
  • Road/Neutral: 8-6
  • Finished 21-10 (7-9 ACC), missed NCAA Tournament
2007-08 Miami:
  • Won Pre-season Tournament (Puerto Rico Tip-Off)
  • Started out 11-0 (the committee only looks at D-I wins)
  • Next 5 games after first loss: 2-3
  • Good wins: Marist (neutral, RPI: 83); VCU (neutral, RPI: 65); Providence (neutral, RPI: 45); Mississippi State (road, RPI: 73); Georgia Tech (RPI: 70)
  • Bad losses: none outside top 100
  • ACC Tournament: N/A
  • RPI (current): 47
  • SOS (current): 101
  • Non-Conference RPI (current): 35
  • Non-Conference SOS (current): 207
  • Record against RPI top 50: 1-1
  • Last 10: 6-4
  • Road/Neutral: 5-2
  • Finished: currently 13-4 (1-3 ACC)
We'll see how the Hurricanes finish, but they are well on their way. Miami has 6 home games (Clemson, Florida State, Duke, Maryland, Virginia, Boston College), 6 road games (Wake Forest, Duke, Virginia Tech, Georgia Tech, Clemson, Florida State), and the conference tournament left.
