Through yesterday's games, the Cajun Softball OWP (50% of RPI formula) is still lingering below .500 with a .4890. However, in the aggregate, Cajun opponents in that OWP have scheduled strong non-conference schedules. Once they begin moving into the weaker part of their schedules, this should begin to correct itself and I expect the Cajuns' OWP to rise. The Cajuns' OOWP will also reflect this early season schedule strength.
Some examples ...
Hofstra is currently 2-10 (.1667) in non-UL games. Hofstra is a much better team than this and have been beaten up by the likes of Louisville, Tennessee, Michigan, Depaul, UCLA, Virginia, East Carolina, etc. They no longer have any ranked teams remaining on their schedule and will be immersed in CAA conference play soon.
Other schools like Winthrop (11-11, .5000), Boston (10-6, .6250), and Mississippi Valley State (11-11, .5000) are doing OK, but should see their winning percentage increase dramatically as they move into the second half of their schedule.
Meanwhile, the Sun Belt schedule will be just fine for the Cajuns (in terms of OWP). At present, Cajun opponents in Sun Belt play would contribute an aggregate .5445 to the OWP.
Looking at the remainder of the Judy Garmin Classic, we have ...
Penn State 7-13 (.3500)
Fresno State 19-10 (.6552)
Iowa 9-12 (.4289)
Arizona 16-4 (.8000)
... which results in an aggregate .5585 OWP and what will be a solid contribution to the OOWP.
