2009 RPI

Post by UPSoccerFanatic on Mon Aug 31, 2009 10:34 pm

For those interested in following the RPI as it evolves over the course of the season, which is a good way to get a better understanding of how it works, I just have posted RPI ratings covering games through Monday, August 31. They are on the RPI for Division I Women's Soccer website, in the form of an Excel spreadsheet attachment to the "RPI REPORTS" page on that website. Here's a link to the page: http://sites.google.com/site/rpifordivisioniwomenssoccer/rpi-reports

Ha ha

Now, if we can just get past UAB and South Carolina....
And Hawai'i being ranked without a win...

It might be a bit early to take the RPI seriously, huh?

It'll be fun to watch it all settle out as the weeks go by.

For any of you who looked at the very early RPI report yesterday, I discovered an error in how I was calculating Element 3. I thought I was being more efficient than last year, but I just was introducing an error into the system. I've posted the new RPI numbers on the RPI for Division I Women's Soccer website, on the RPI Reports page.

Geez, we no longer have to get past UAB and South Carolina. We're in our rightful position.

well, that looks almost credible at the top, (at least that some of the expected teams are there) though Hawaii at 48 and Stanford at 50 looks a bit suspect. I still guess it will be a few weeks before we can take real stock in it.


Still it's a worthwhile effort, UPSF. This little bit of data really shows how much each element in the RPI affects the total.

Great job.
