RPI adjustments


Recommended Posts

The NCAA Division I men's basketball committee is changing the way it calculates the Ratings Percentage Index, giving more weight to playing and winning games on the road........ The committee started evaluating the RPI in 2000, and chairman Bob Bowlsby said in a statement released Friday that over the past 20 years, home teams have won about two-thirds of all games. - Yahoo Sports


Wow maybe we'll see an adjustment to our RPI considering we play like 10 games on the road.

I've read some articles that say it would be tied to road wins, however it would also take into account the home team's home winning percentage ... so if you go to, say, Kentucky and win on the road ... they rarely lose at home so that would be worth big points ... whereas, if you go on the road to play Jack Squat U., who is .500 or (gulp) worse at home, it's not going to be worth much.
