    RPI

    It doesn't mean much this early, but our RPI is #187 and our SOS is a measly #315. I can't wait to play some good competition and see how good we really are.

    Also, for a chuckle, notice who we are cozied up to...Iowa is #188.

    I noticed that too.
    I also saw that UNI is sitting at 34, mainly because they played DePaul who is 8th and lost. Their next highest opponents RPI is 124th.

    EDIT: I guess SLU is 37th, so that will help as well. If we can win all 3, that would be awesome, beating 3 teams in the top 50 RPI.
    Assuming we play ND saturday and then UNI next week, it should boost our RPI quite abit, since they are at 47th and 34th, respectively.


    When Prepared, Fear No One.

    Sad. Once we sweep this weekend that will change real fast.

    2010 Pomeroy Ratings

    Ken Pomeroy's site has us ranked 20th....but in all seriousness...these ratings mean very little this early in the season.

    Re: RPI

    St. Louis, ND, UNI, and Cal will jack our RPI up real quickly if we can win them. The next week and a half is huge for our national perception as well as getting people in the state to realize how good this team is.

    Re: RPI

    Seeing some of the other team's positions, I would assume that our RPI would improve merely from playing the next four games, even if we don't win all of them.

    Re: RPI

    Does when you beat a team matter to the RPI?? Let's say you beat the #1 team in the country early in December, then later on they lose two players to injury and start losing. So naturally they start dropping in the RPI index. Does that mean your victory in December will now be worth less??

    His rankings confirm what I've always known. We have exactly zero luck .

    I don't know about that, UNC is 111th, which is about right

    Re: RPI

    The combined record of the 5 teams we have played is 6-18. Of that total, 3 wins are by Chicago State against non Div 1 teams.
    The next couple weeks will change our RPI dramatically.

    No and Yes. RPI is 25% team's record, 50% opponents' record, and 25% opponents' opponents' record. Opponents' records are based on the most current record, not at time of competition. The team's record is weighted to give more weight to road wins. A road win is worth 1.4, a neutral game is worth 1 and a home win is worth 0.6.

    Either that or they just throw it together on an Excel spreadsheet and see how it goes.

    Re: RPI

    this early in the season, the rpi is beyond useless. It is backwards. It is starting to make a little more sense, but is still backwards. You still almost hurt yourself by winning at home. The best teams are likely playing at home, and winning but the home team early on is getting peanalized in the RPI

    What I mean is that if you lose a game on the road it helps your RPI as much or more than winning a game at home. By winning you make the heaviest weighted component drastically worse and at home your own winning percentage is "discounted".

    extreme is your first game. say YOu play Kansas and beat them. Kansas was 1-0 prior and now since your opp record is 1-1 you just knocked 50% or .50 pts off that component. you won at home, so you went from 0% to 100 percent, but its only weighted by 25 % so you only get .25 pts AND because it was at home you only get 60 % of that so you get credit for .15 pts.

    Your opponent-opponents win % just went up because you are kansas opp, but it doesn't overcome the .50 pt you get dinged on kansas' record from beating kansas.

    Check back in a couple of weeks when each win changes the winning percentages only .10 pts or so and everyone has a few away games. it will at least make a little more sense.

    Re: RPI

    187 is our ranking without them factoring in the win last night. I can almost guarantee we go down in ranking when they do factor in that win and bump us to 5-0
