From Aaron Fitt, [quote]As we wrote yesterday, there is very little difference between Ole Miss and South Carolina. But we now believe LSU has leapfrogged over both of them. The Tigers are up to No. 10 in the RPI (ahead of No. 13 South Carolina and No. 14 Ole Miss), and all three now have 15 top 50...

re: Stop complaining about baseball OOC schedule... - Eye_Heart_Number_33
The RPI is 25% winning percentage, 50% opponent's winning %, and 25% opponent's opponent's winning %. The major difference was when the NCAA modified the formula for winning % to reward those teams that played road games, while punishing teams that played alot of home games. As an example, if Oo...

[quote]Playing 13 games against teams with 200+ RPI is detrimental no matter where you play them. South Carolina played 4 games away from home non-conference, which is one less than us (2 road, 2 neutral).

Stop complaining about baseball OOC schedule... - Eye_Heart_Number_33
The fact that we play so many home games is more detrimental to our RPI. Two years ago, the NCAA modified the formula, so a home win counts for 0.7 and a road win counts for 1.3. Had we played the same OOC schedule, but played 2 series on the road, as well as 3 other midweek road games, our RPI wo...
