For the curious: What is the RPI algorithm? A team's RPI is a sum of three values: 25% of the team's winning percentage, 50% of its opponents' average winning percentage (strength of schedule), and 25% of its opponents' opponents' average winning percentage (opponents' strength of schedule). Only results against teams which are in NCAA Division I are counted in all of these winning percentages. Since December 2004, the 25-50-25 ratio was adjusted so that all road wins are treated as 1.4 wins, all road losses are treated as 0.6 losses, all home wins are worth 0.6 wins and all home losses are valued at 1.4 losses. Games in neutral sites still counts as 1. ********************* Basically, you can't lose at home (why Tad scheduled 2 of the 3 toughest non-conference opponents at neutral sites), 1 road win is worth more than 2 road losses, and since the opponents of opponents matter it's good to schedule mediocre teams from good conferences. In short: after the 2011 tourney snub, Tad figured this **** out.
