I think that everyone is forgetting about Opponents and their wins ... which is part of the reason why Beechwood made a nice jump this past week.  Will McCracken, Paducah Tilghman, Hopkinsville w

I know we are focusing on Mayfield and Beechwood but I find it comical that two teams that Owensboro Catholic beat by an average of 40 points are ahead of them in the RPI. 

There are no 6A scrubs lining up to play Beechwood. Scheduling for Beechwood is always tough, and the RPI is making it extremely tough to find willing dance partners that make sense.

Mayfield has their bye week coming up, that will hurt them just like it hurt Beechwood last week.

This coming week(10/15):

Mayfield plays Ballard Memorial (RPI .32428), the weakest team left on their schedule.

Beechwood plays Lloyd Memorial (RPI .44336)

Assuming both win, Beechwood should extend their lead over Mayfield in RPI.

The next week (10/22) Mayfield plays Murray and Beechwood plays Newport. Assuming both win, Mayfield should gain some points because Murray is a better RPI by about .15 above Newport. It will be very close heading into the last game.

The final games are Beechwood vs. 1A Newport Catholic (RPI currently .59470; record 5-2) and Mayfield at 4A Madisonville-North Hopkins (RPI currently .41772; record 2-6). Looking at the records and RPI most of us would think advantage Beechwood. However, this is where the biggest flaw in KHSAA RPI will show itself. Because Madisonville-North Hopkins is a 4A school, Mayfield will gain RPI points. Record doesn't matter much. RPI of the opponent doesn't matter much. Simply because Mayfield beats a 4A school they will get extra points in RPI.

The RPI is flawed.

Very! Someone has to explain why Butler County is so high, as well as Hancock and McLean. I mean, come on now! Surely it will all get balanced out by end of year. I know your top 3 is clear, but huge problems below that. 
 

do you get more credit for beating a horrible team that is several classes larger than you than for beating a good school of the same size?

Agree. The major flaw is giving too many points for beating a school that has more students.  

Right, given the nature of the RPI that is a major flaw.

To me it seems the best strategy for RPI among smaller schools who are decent is to schedule as many 5A and 6A cupcakes as possible. And they are out there especially in the western part of the state.

What you're saying is that if Mayfield and Beechwood wins out then Beechwood is going to travel.

It looks like it will be really close.
