NCAA replaces RPI with new March Madness selection metric


Just saw this. Very interesting and applies to about half our in season arguments. Curious to see this play out this year and in the future. Welcome to the term NET in all future rants on this board

sounds worlds better than rpi. 10 point cap for win margin might be too low though.

This is a nice surprise. Looks like they're keeping the quadrant and team sheet system that was introduced last year. So we'll still have some basis for comparing resumes and projecting seeds.

Yeah the 10 point cap seems low to me as well, but I do like the idea of it being capped. Not sure what a better cap would be. Maybe 20?

Wish they had more info on everything it factors in

I will say if any team will be advantaged by a ten point cap it could be UC cause we don't seem to blow a lot of teams out we should. We'll beat a team by 13 that we coulda, shoulda, woulda beat by 30 more often than not it seems

I wonder how this will affect the game itself. I mean a team has a ball up 8 and the other team decides not to foul since there’s only 5 seconds remaining. Does the team with the ball try to score?
