    Your RPI is Showing

    If you've been on the KHSAA scoreboard page today you may have noticed that the RPI is showing for each school. The official RPI isn't supposed to come out until the halfway point of the season and the KHSAA has certainly couched the rating with disclaimers. At the bottom it says:

    **RPI is updated hourly. Teams missing scores at that time are not included. This experimental, not official, currently under development, subject to revision and must be regarded with skepticism this early in the season.

    Linked below is Trinity, who has a 0.650 RPI at this precise moment.

    Makes for good discussion board talk, at any rate.

    To add to that, RPI locks at the end of the regular season. That keeps a team from being helped or hurt by first and second round playoff games.

    Which round does RPI first come into play?
    Are the playoffs reseeded each round after the first "RPI Round" is played?

    Usually in these RPIs strength of schedule is the major factor correct?

    Win % .35, Opponent win % .35, and Opponents Opponents win % .30.

    My bad I didn’t scroll down to the breakdown on my first visit of the site.

    I agree that come November we will probably have some of the best BGP thread battles in recent memory.

    However I like the mixing up by using RPI. I think it will make things more interesting.

    Round three. District winners from 1-4 are seeded and winners from 5-8 are seeded. In round four (state semifinals) the remaining four teams are seeded 1-4. In the state championship game the better seeded team is the home team and will wear dark uniforms.

    You’re welcome. I’ll be writing more in depth about the RPI in next week’s 3A Notebook.

    So with this RPI I assume it will create a need to “rub it in” or run the score up as it will boost your rank?

    No, margin of victory is not factored into the RPI.

    The RPI will be great for generating conversation, but I don’t need a computer to tell me who the best teams are.
