    Don't know if I told you but spoke to a lady at the NCAA stats group and they aren't worried about some info until the end of the year (attendance being one). They have a system that teams can input the data from games but mistakes are made and they don't have the personnel to keep timely info.

    I have seen this surface ... in fact it did in the baseball RPI this season (early). They had some game results that were wrong, producing a faulty RPI report. It was corrected within a couple of days.

    I asked about attendance figures which seemed way out of wack to me but they weren't concerned about that during the season.

    I've never noticed the baseball attendance numbers to be far off on the NCAA report. Softball is way off though (all the doubleheaders)

    After watching that video, I think I'll take making a road trip to St. Peter's off of my "bucket list"!

    The question I have is, how the heck do you recruit to that??! Do they form the team from open tryouts from the student body, or do you just sign up for the team at freshman orientation?

    To field a 35 man roster they do both.

    I'm sure some of the guys on the roster may have not gotten any better offers and wanted to continue to play. And St. Peter's gave them that opportunity

    Offers as in financial offers? I am wondering if there are actual baseball scholarships there. The roster only totals 23 players.

    Well, either financial or otherwise. Just meant that St. Peter's was their only chance to continue playing the game.

    Moved down to 50 Boyd's World, from 49. We are at the point in the season when more wins/losses have less effect. No doubt. It is what it is, at this point.

    I did forget we still need to play ULM (239), which may hurt win or lose.

    I suggest using Warren Nolan ... not Boyd's World. My calcs match Warren Nolan (and I know mine are correct). The Cajuns currently sit at #49 just ahead of Coastal Carolina.

    The loss last night did have a significant effect on the Cajuns' RPI (loss of ~.0050). There was a large gap between the Cajuns' RPI in the 48th position and the 49th position before last night's game. Hence, the Cajuns had a bit of a buffer and only dropped one slot (though nearly two). But that buffer had now been spent ... there are a cluster of teams together in the 50's.

    Today is a must-win.

    A road sweep of ULM is basically an RPI wash. The operative term being road.

    The reason why Boyd's RPI is slightly different than that of Warren Nolan's RPI ... Boyd does not include ties. There is just enough of a difference to vault Coastal Carolina over Louisiana in Boyd's RPI when you discard the tie each team possesses (ironically against each other).

    One other thing to note, because this catches folks often ...

    For some strange reason the NCAA does not factor home/road for tie games. Thus, both the Cajuns and Chanticleers obtain 0.5 wins and 0.5 losses for their tie game in Conway. The makeup of the formula, its application, and many inconsistencies (of which this is only one) never ceases to amaze.

    You're comparing apples to potatoes.

    That's almost like comparing college baseball rpi to rocks per inch on the beach or rednecks per inch in Ruston.

    But the argument is, if you play better teams you get a higher rpi.... Are college teams better than every mlb team? Hard to believe....

    It's all about relative strength. And I'm not talking about Rustonians' sister cousins.

    I'm not saying the college rpi is the greatest thing since sliced bread. Just that you can't compare the two.
