JCI Gets Mad Love from G-Dub

WOW.. JCI IS MY NEW HERO.3/11/2006 2:55:41 PMBY: Free Quebec

I don't know where this guy came from, but JCI's blog is awesome if you value statsitical anylsis in basketball (and since virtually everyone know talks RPI, everyone should be interested).

If you scroll to the second blog entry here, he has a post about scheduling to maximize RPI. Basically he says that there is an RPI sweet spot for the 50th ranked program to try to schedule -- try to get roughly the 98th ranked team on your home court because statistically, you have the best chance to win and boost your RPI at the same time.

He's even broken the thing down in graph form.

Should be mandatory reading for the GW athletic department.

"That's a really good article. I especially agree with him about a win should never hurt you and a loss should never help you. Something like the weighted winning percentage of the RPI depending where the game is played. So a loss at UConn would only be like 0.1 losses, a win at UConn would be like 3 wins, a win at home against Jacksonville would be worth 0.1 wins, and a loss at home to Jacksonville would be like 3 losses. Something like that."

JCI COMES TO OUR DEFENSE AGAIN3/8/2006 4:01:04 PMBY: Free Quebec

I have no idea what Jim Colton's background is, but this year he's my kind of statistician.

---------------------------------------------
"i found that blog to be highly informative and thought provoking. everyone should read it. great link. i also checked out the comparison page where it tracks all bracket projections and gives average seeds for each team. The 1 seed he gives us pulls us up to a 3 seed overall, the last one I believe."

---------------------------------------------
"I have been reading your blog and love it and have linked to it on this board a couple of times -- not just becuse you are a defender of GW, but because you ask the right questions. "
