Tulsa is sitting right at #75 after their win at Temple. We have 8 Q2 wins at the moment.

UCF stayed at 131 after beating SMU. They may need to beatdown ECU on Sunday and/or win their first AAC tourney game to stay Q2 for us.

According to quad a win at Kansas is same level as a win a UConn they need to rethink these quads.

Reposting some stuff from a couple years ago when the groups first came out:

"RPI groups are simply designed to initially sort teams. Sorting hundreds of teams would be next to impossible for a human if you didn't have a small number of criteria to compare. But when splitting hairs between a few teams, then it's easier to compare more details. Still, the number of Group 1 wins is really important even if they're all at the bottom of Group 1, because it puts you on the right side of the first process used to sort teams."

"oh a win at duke is the same as a win at UCF now?...

That's obviously one of the drawbacks, but the system was more designed to answer questions like "is a home win against Maryland better than a win at SMU?" Previously, the answer required seeing that Maryland is top 50 and SMU is not, and then trying to mentally account for the fact that SMU was played on the road to come up with an idea of which is better. A human can't go through that process thousands of times and remember the conclusions when sorting. The new Group system tells you from the very beginning that winning at SMU is better than beating Maryland at home. It should leave less room for human value judgments."

Im going to question any system that comes to the conclusion that beating smu on road is better than beating Maryland on road. It suggest that beating #75 on the road is closer to beating #36 on the road or # 1 anywhere , than it is beating #76 on the road. That's laughable.

right, but didn't the old system say beating the #1 at their place and beating the 49 at home were the same?

That post is referring to Maryland and SMU from 2018, not this year.

If a schedule has a whole bunch of top 10 NET teams, or a whole bunch of 76-85 NET teams, the quad system won't be fair to them. But realistically, most schedules are a mixture. An entire schedule is going to have teams on both sides of the cut lines. On average, the quad system is the best way to sort teams while limiting the number of groups to a manageable number. Don't call it laughable unless you can come up with something better.
