  1. Re: Another Very Favorable Bracketology from CBSports.com

    They did, but for some reason I don't think it starts until next year.

    Re: DirecTV and 4K tvs

    Here's a helpful chart to see where you stack up. You'd have to be below the red line to even begin to perceive a difference from 4K vs. 1080p.

    Also, here's a great article explaining it in more...

    Yeah, when you're standing right in front of it, it's awesome.

    Re: DirecTV and 4K tvs

    Also, in addition to lack of true content issues, on a 65" TV, your eye can't resolve a difference between 1080p and 4k once you are about 8ft away. So if its a big room and you're sitting far away,...

    I personally don't like that set up because it makes WHO you beat completely irrelevant, a fact commonly overlooked/misunderstood.

    I feel it leaves too much predetermined that when you get to the...

    Re: 1/18 RPI

    I just worded it confusingly, I'll go back and make it clear. There is no such thing as a good win or bad loss in the RPI formula. W-L and opponent strength are completely separate in RPI.

    Re: 1/18 RPI

    Sorry, I was speaking of the "boost" you get to playing a good team, or the drag on your ranking for playing a poor team. Their winning% gets thrown into the pool the same win or lose.

    Re: 1/18 RPI

    But yeah, I definitely hate when people use RPI as a predictive metric. Even as a measure quality of play, RPI is a very flawed, incomplete picture.

    Really have to look a more of a blend of...

    Haha, no I just hate how people use both incorrectly. And how they use them incorrectly and then point to their own incorrect usage to imply fault.

    I'm just pointing out that it's very common to...

    Re: 1/18 RPI

    Basically the Baylor loss doesn't matter much in RPI since it was on the road, and road losses are incredibly watered down in RPI.

    You get the exact same boost simply for playing them based on...

    Re: Top 10 on Monday?

    RPI is primarily a measure of schedule strength. Higher ranking doesn't particularly mean better team.

    However, it's commonly misinterpreted/presented as a power ranking.

    The "wrong way" would have to be if the center court logo was upside down.

    I think the key here is that there is a Sports Almanac that one of us needs to go back to about 1998 or so and burn so we can join the Jeremy's and Roundball's in the real 2015. :jimlad:
