I have noticed an effect over the years that does seem to correlate with Oregon weather.

I have noticed times when opponents from down south show up wearing extra layers of clothing and gloves while UP players are in short sleeves. I don't think a team that has had more than a player or two wearing gloves has ever won a game here. They are just too concerned about comfort to concentrate on the game.

I just posted a new RPI report for games through yesterday, November 5, on the BigSoccer RPI thread. You can use the following link to access the full report with the breakdown including the three elements of the RPI: http://www.bigsoccer.com/forum/showthread.php?t=650592

(In an interesting quirk, although Kennesaw State is at #82 on the list, on the unadjusted RPI list (i.e., no adjustments for good wins/ties and no penalties for bad losses/ties), it's at #71, which means that we get bonus points for our win over Kennesaw State since it's in the top 80 of the unadjusted RPI.)

Here are the top 89:

1 North Carolina U 0.724163
2 UCLA 0.721805
3 Stanford 0.720671
4 Portland U 0.695941
5 Notre Dame 0.693908

I've been so busy gathering game results that I forgot to post this earlier today. Here are the RPIs including games through yesterday (Thursday). I hate to root against UW, so I'm sending my energy towards Pullman right now and towards Eugene later. As an aside, it looks like the Oregon game may have internet video coverage.

Here are the top 90 in the RPI, updated through yesterday's (Friday, November 7) games. You'll see that the Pilots have dropped to #5 below Notre Dame. However, if the Pilots win tonight and Notre Dame wins tomorrow against Connecticut, I am thinking the Pilots will move back into the #4 position. This is because San Diego's good record will help the Pilots' strength of schedule and Connecticut's below .500 record will hurt Notre Dame's strength of schedule. Plus, the Pilots will get maximum bonus points. Plus, whether Oregon wins, loses, or ties tonight, I am thinking their RPI will improve due to UCLA's contribution to their strength of schedule. I could be wrong, but I think they'll be just at the edge of teams that will get consideration. I'd like to see Washington State get at least a tie out of their game tomorrow.

Big match tonight, (Sat, Nov.8th, 8pm at USD)!!! Much, much more is on the line tonight than just the WCC title. And a dominant Pilots performance with mainly the playoff squad would be a huge confidence builder. (Although I would take 1-0 just the same!!!) Very Happy

How many of you really fanatical fans are going to cancel your dinner and entertainment plans to stay home and listen to the match live, as well as mingle with other die-hard Pilot Soccer folks in that warm and cozy CHATBOX?

Or, take your laptop with you no matter where you go. (Do they have earphones on those things so you can listen to the game even at a restaurant or movie theater?)

Okay - this is sour grapes because the only thing I can do tonight is either listen to the match, watch TV or go to bed early. Of course, I choose The Match! I'm old!

Re: RPI for 2008

Post by UPSoccerFanatic on Sun Nov 09, 2008 12:30 am

Tomorrow's a really busy day for me, putting together a final RPI report by some time late tomorrow night, working at an open house at the school where I coach, and attending to anything else that comes along. So, I'll only give the following brief report:

After today's games, the Pilots are back at #4 in the RPI, ahead of Notre Dame. It's very hard for me to imagine that they won't stay at #4, as Notre Dame tomorrow plays Connecticut, which has a losing record. So, I expect the Pilots to be farther ahead of Notre Dame after that game than they are now, whether Notre Dame wins or loses. It's all going to come down to how the Women's Soccer Committee decides to handle head-to-head results and results against common opponents. I think the Committee should end up with the top three teams being Notre Dame, UCLA, and Portland, with North Carolina and Stanford fighting it out for who gets the fourth #1 seed, and with the two of them meeting in the quarters. But, that may be asking a lot from the Committee.

I'll second that!

Great work, UPSF. Sounds like we're going to get a #1 seed. But I won't believe we're hosting Rounds 1/2 until I see it on Monday at 5pm. Just don't trust that committee, based on factual recent history. Razz

I'm not quite as optimistic. As UPSF points out, there are 5 teams that have separated themselves from the rest. Notre Dame as #5 RPI will almost surely get a #1 seed as the only undefeated, untied team, despite their easier schedule. That leaves us at the bottom.

Another way of thinking of this, which may or may not have any bearing in the committee's thinking, is the record in matches among the top 5. Unless I'm missing something, the records are:

UCLA 2-0
Notre Dame 1-0
Stanford 0-1-1 (corrected)
UNC 0-1-1
Portland 0-1

We are the only team without a win or tie against a Top 5 team. That gives them two possible routes to giving us a #2.

Using that argument, UNC is odd man out, a tie being worth a 1/2 loss.

If you extend the reasoning, I believe we also have more wins against top 30 teams that all but UNC. We also don't have failures against unranked teams, as UCLA has with its ties with Brown and Santa Clara.

We also beat out UCLA in the record against common opponents for the same Santa Clara tie.

You can extend those arguments all kinds of ways....

Oops, I got Stanford's record wrong. (Corrected now.) Will they see a tie as half a win or half a loss, or both?

I suppose they could look at in all kinds of ways, but at the top of the heap, what you concentrate on is strength of schedule and failures from perfection.
In that respect, a tie is a failure, just not as bad as a loss.

An if they go to secondary criteria, we are perfect in the last 8 games, and Stanford isn't.

Of course, everyone except Stanford and UP plays today, so there is still hope for an upset that would make it obvious. Smile

Notre Dame wins 1-0 over UConn in OT. UNC leads 2-0 over VPI in second half. Maybe the Ducks can pull an upset!

Interesting development at U-dub.

The huskies lead Arizona 1-0 at the start of the second half, but are playing man down on a red card to Alex Webber

There seems to be a lot of 1-0 regulation and OT wins by our elite comrades at the top of the heap in the last couple weeks. And the opposition are not always great teams.

I'm reflecting on last night's match at USD, and I want everyone to remember that after USD scored the quick 2nd half goal, the Pilots started to really attack and then BOOM. Sophie scores. Coming back so quickly from a devastating goal is the sign of a great team. And when Soph tied up the score at 1-1, the Amigas had not yet entered the game.

Point being: Although we know from the Toreros coach's comments and gousd's post that the Amigas appearance energized the Pilots, (fresh bodies), and wore down the Toreros, the fact remains that it is pure speculation who would have won that game had there been no Amigas.

Yes, it was a 2nd half rout, (4-1), with the U20's in there, but it was 1-1 before they came in and no one in the world knows who might have won that game if there were no 'tres amigas'. Maybe a 2-1 Pilot OT victory like some of the top teams in the country lately. Maybe a tie, maybe a loss. Who knows.

What I do know is, when the playoff squad had to score they did so, and did it quickly with their hottest current striker. You think after tying it, Sophie, Megan and Dani would have gone to sleep? Could USD have scored again against our terrific "D" and GK?

Think about it..... Cool
