Note on Schedule Analysis: I'm dividing non-conference opponents into
three categories: Marquee Matchups (those teams that are expected to be
top 40 teams), Mid-Majors (solid clubs expected to be ranked from 41-100)
and Tune-Ups (anyone over 100 in the RPI). Marquee Matchups get 5 points,
Mid-Majors 2 and Tune-Ups 0. In addition, all true road games got a bonus
of .5. The points are added and divided by the total number of non-conference
games to yield a rating. For those teams playing in tournaments without
a guaranteed number of games, I will assume that they will play in at least
two games.

Strength of Schedule Ranking:

1. NC State (2.9)
2. Virginia (2.4)
3. Duke (2.27)
4. UNC (1.87)
5. Clemson (1.7)
6. Georgia Tech (1.2)
6. Florida State (1.2)
8. Maryland (1)
9. Wake Forest (.09)
