JCI, Week 7

1/30/2006
Here's the updated JCI with games through Sunday January 29th. The Illini move up to 5th, jumping ahead of Florida and creeping right up on Texas. Big road game for Illinois Tuesday at Wisconsin. For more information on the JCI, click here.

NCAA and the RPI

The NCAA recently announced that they will start publishing the official RPI rankings every Thursday (with games as of the previous Monday). Apparently, it takes two days to compute the RPI. This is definitely a step in the right direction -- posting the RPI improves the amount of transparency and will definitely get people talking about the rankings and college basketball in general.

On a related note, there's a new Chairman of the Selection Comittee this year. His name is Craig Littlepage, Athletic Director at Virginia. This is also a positive since previous chair Bob Bowlsby had a less-than-stellar run at the top, including the seedings gaffe involving BYU a couple years ago and implementing the home-road adjustments to the RPI that only made the rankings even more misleading. Similar to Bowlsby, I've had some e-mail conversations with Littlepage (He signs off as CL...I'm just dying to address him CL Smooth). I'll post the e-mail banter here in the near future.

Jayhawk Watch

Look at Kansas creep up the JCI with two big road wins at Texas A&M and Iowa State this past week. Bill Self just might get the Jayhawks into the tourney (and I'm not talking about the NIT) this year after all. Everybody needs one good first-round lock in the tournament pool, so maybe we should root for Kansas to make it.
