Hawaii 3-0 record vs Lincoln Memorial gave them 3 more RPI top 10 wins as Lincoln Memorial had a good overall record. But we all know if Lincoln Memorial was in the Big West they would have probably gone 1-9 in conference (I will give them one win over CSN or UCI). So it dumb those three game gave Hawaii way more of a resume builder than beating better teams with worse records like UCSD or Stanford.
I get I am sounding like an SEC football fan who says it x teams was in the SEC they would be lucky to win a game. But in the sense of men's volleyball it is true. There is even a larger gap among the top and bottom teams then their is in football.
