JCI, Week 8

2/06/2006

Here's the updated JCI. The Illini only move down a couple of spots after their bad loss to Penn State. Fortunately, the Illini have the third best quality of wins (behind Duke and UConn), so they are able to somewhat absorb a bad home loss (Penn State is currently ranked 72nd).

If there's anybody out there besides Bob Bowlsby who wants to try to defend the RPI, look no further than Arizona (#16 in the RPI) and George Washington (#38 in the RPI). How can anybody have any confidence in a system that produces a result like this? As I've said in the past, the RPI rewards you if you play tough teams (not accurately however), but it doesn't matter much if you actually beat those teams.

NCAA Goofs Up RPI Release

As mentioned earlier, the NCAA released the 'official' RPI rankings publicly for the first time last week. However, they screwed up the home-road-neutral distinction for a number of games. More importantly, they counted wins against non-Division I opponents, which should be excluded from the calculation. The problem has since been fixed, but it makes you wonder if they had included those non-Division I games incorrectly in past seasons. At least with the public disclosure, they'll get some more accountability behind the data.


RPI vs. JCI

Similar to the information I shared with Craig Littlepage, I'll continue to post the Top 25&50 and Non-Top 25&50 RPI vs. JCI groups each week. I think it's an easy way to compare which teams are being helped and hurt by the RPI formula. Just ask yourself which group of teams would you with if they were to go head-to-head? And remember that one of the important tools that the Committee looks at is Win-Loss record against the top 25 & 50 (and 100), so if the the Top 50 includes teams that shouldn't be there, the W-L record against these groups is misleading.
