"Uh, SU's RPI ranking is 16, so how can you say there aren't 12 teams with better profiles? I think you're just counting *'s on the realtimerpi SU results board to justify jumping SU 3-4 places up the RPI rankings."
By the way, please go look at Florida's profile. Or UNC's. Or Texas'. Or Wisconsin's or Georgetown's. Syracuse has a better resume than all of those teams. Something tells ME that YOU are just looking at realtimerpi's RPI rankings and nothing else.
