Should after next weekend as the Aggies play the team that swept them.

Edit: To say I meant to respond to the USCe sweeping Bama not helping us. Sorry about that.

A moss state win over us may pull them up enough to be first quartile tho

Can only control what we can control. RPI although an important measuring stick for the committee it is only one. Play well and we will continue to check off the other metrics the committee looks for.

A home sweep in one of the remaining series would really help get our conference record well over 0.500 and go a long ways towards hosting and maybe even national seed if Arky stumbles and doesn't win the west.

Arky has an RPI problem too

Florida State beats TCU and pushes the Aggies down to #10. TCU also lost 2-3 to Kentucky earlier this season. Surprised a home win over them gave Florida State such a bump.

DBU has dropped the first two games against Illinois State (#180 RPI). They're now 5-6 in conference. DBU in a free fall to #5 RPI.

Southern Miss has dropped the first two games against UAB and fallen to #18. They are two games ahead of UTSA in Conference USA with that series in Hattiesburg in two weeks.

TCU has dropped the first two games to FSU and fallen to #35.

Georgia Southern has dropped the first two games to Coastal Carolina and is in free fall to #7. They are now 3 games behind Texas State in the Sun Belt.

With DBU, Gonzaga and Georgia Southern all slipping / plummeting the door is wide open for 5-6 SEC hosts

nothing more ridiculous than vandy at #8. shows how stupidly off rpi can be. they basically have lost every series against good teams, with absolutely no outstanding wins.

yes, the mid-majors are clearing out for the power conferences.

pretty good chance the 16 host spots are:

SEC (6), ACC (6), Pac-12 (3), and Oklahoma State

I've noticed that if you have 0 losses outside the top 100 (which Vandy does) your RPI is greatly impacted. Vandy is 5-10 against the top 25 while we are 11-6, but our two losses outside the top 100 is why we are behind them. Backwards thinking for sure.

exactly. whoever comes up with these formulas…..

fine, for an early indicator RPI when teams are developing, finding out who they are, etc…

but two months into the season, when you're playing good teams with real consequences, it should be weighted completely different.

just tweak it. maybe at the 75% point of a season, you take the first 25% and reduce their weight, and then you do some similar reduction with the mid-week games played in the second half of your season.

some will defend the current calcs on "mathematical" or "objective" grounds, throwing common sense out the window. the danger is real decisions being made based on something that is so flawed.

A loss to a team outside the top 100 counts no more and no less than a loss to a team inside the top 100.

But to be sure, when you drop games you should win, your RPI will not be as high as you want or think it should be

So if beating the number 1 team is the same as beating the number 150 team then why does the RPI even differentiate between 1-25, 26-50, 51-100 and 101-200?

Selection committee will say we only needed one more win to host with a #5 RPI then put us in second seed in Austin…

I guess the head to head record against top 10 teams doesn't factor in.

Wikipedia claims the weighting for baseball started in 2013 and is as described here for true home v. true road environments.

'The formula used in NCAA baseball is the same as that used in basketball except for the adjustment of home and road records. Starting in 2013, college baseball RPI formula values each road victory as 1.3 instead of 1.0. Each home win is valued at 0.7 instead of 1.0. Conversely, each home loss counts 1.3 against a team's RPI and each road loss counts 0.7 against a team's RPI. Neutral-site games have a value of 1.0, but the committee is studying how to determine if a game should be considered a neutral-site contest. The adjustment is based on data showing that home teams win about 62 percent of the time in Division I baseball."[6] The change was made because of the discrepancy in the number of home games teams play. Some schools are able to play 3540 of their 56 allowable games at home, while other teams, due to factors such as weather, may play only 20 home games.

This adjustment replaces the previous system of bonuses or penalties that teams received. Bonus points were awarded for beating top-75 non-conference opponents on the road and penalty points were given for losing to bottom-75 non-conference opponents at home. Bonuses and penalties were on a sliding scale, separated into groups of 25, with the top bonus for a road win against a top-25 team and the worst penalty for a home loss to a bottom-25 opponent.[6]'

Same idea but I think the weights are only .7 and 1.3 in baseball.

Thsts covered by the wiki reference, yes. Essentially pure RPI uses the Strength of Schedule calcs as 75% of the RPI but weighting does try to fold in a heavy home-field advantage into the index.

It's not a good calc but it avoids margin of victory incentives.

The Aggies are now #13 RPI and in a 3-way tie for 2nd in the SEC West with Auburn & LSU.

Most interesting series next weekend: Arkansas @ Auburn
Hogs are sitting at #25 RPI and have a chance to help themselves with road wins over the Tigers, who are now #4 RPI after taking 1 of 3 at Tennessee this weekend.

I like Auburn's chances at home against Arkansas.

I'd like to see the Aggies to sweep the #65 RPI Gamecocks next weekend.

Mercer is now up to #10 in the RPI. They're a decent team and made a 12-spot jump this week. How'd they make such an impressive jump? Well, they won 4 road games…1 at #153 Jacksonville State and 3 at #126 East Tennessee State.

Road games matter…at least in the eyes of the RPI.

RPI is a point of reference but not as useful in determining how good a team is.
