West Virginia 1/Penn State 0

Wow, West Virginia 1, Penn State 0. The Hofstra game might have given a clue about this. And, based on the stats, it wasn't a fluke win by W Va. The Big East now has 3 teams in the quarter-finals.

Three #1 seeds lose at home. Wow, when, if ever, has that happened before?

GO PILOTS!

any comments now about RPI as a predictor?

Albyn had both losers as big favorites-- bigger than us over Tennessee.



But Massey only had UNC a .83 goal favorite over Notre Dame (including Home field).

and he had Penn State a .68 goal favorite over West Virginia (with the home advantage).

Both were well within one standard deviation (1.83 goals).
He has home field worth a flat .36 goals.

I wonder if Penn State even had a home advantage. Their home crowds are generally small, and West Virginia is only about 2 1/2 hrs from there. Attendance at the game isn't listed in the box score, If past crowd size is a judge, it wasn't much.

UNC had a crowd listed at 2202

After the tournament is over, at some point I'll do a "prediction" comparison among the RPI, SoccerRatings, and Massey.
