Realtime RPI...

still shows Nevada at 5-1 with a loss to Tulsa.

I thought they would have corrected their error by now.

Perhaps that site isn't as reliable as I thought.   It makes me wonder how many other errors they have failed to catch and correct.

I think a lot of these RPI sites have computational and input errors that we never know about.

Most of the best RPI sites have stopped updating this season all together because the NCAA has adopted a new ranking system called the NET rankings to replace the RPI moving forward. NET Rankings explained here : The NET, explained

The first NET rankings were released today:

MWC Teams

  • #13 - Nevada
  • #37 - Utah State
  • #47 - UNLV
  • #64 - Fresno State
  • #96 - SDSU
  • #204 - CSU
  • #210 - New Mexico
  • #223 - Boise State
  • #253 - Air Force
  • #285 - Wyoming
  • #320 - SJSU

Thanks for the update, I hadn't even realized this. Good to see 5 top 100 teams already, but 6 sub-200 is pretty awful.

Speaking of RPI, has RPI Forecast been abandoned (in light of the new NET Rankings)? It's still showing results from the end of last season. IIRC it was a USU fan (AggieSox maybe?) that was responsible for it.

I was wondering that myself. Yes, it is maintained by a USU fan. (freakboy on the USU board. I don't think he posts on this site.) I know of know him IRL. I've been meaning to shoot him an e-mail to see if he plans to bring the site online again. I hope it's not dead. That was always one of my favorite sites during basketball season.

Freakboy! Yes, that name is definitely ringing a bell to me. Thanks for that.

Even if RPI is a deprecated metric it would be nice to have RPI Forecast around, especially for the outcome simulations. I don't know how he had the underlying system architected to produce the results, but I can imagine it wasn't inexpensive to maintain.

Maybe he'll surprise us and release NETForcast in the future! :Clapping:
