    UL Baseball RPI

    Now is the time of year when I begin looking at RPI as something other than totally useless (in terms of having enough connectivity throughout the country to render something that is not ridiculous). I do not have Paul Kislanko's Adjusted RPI yet (just the Base RPI). But the next best thing (Boyd's Pseudo RPI) has the Cajuns moving all the way up to #77. Some rankings of note (Louisiana and Louisiana opponents highlighted) ...


    #2 Southern Mississippi .649
    #15 Texas State .607
    #18 Rice .601
    #19 Troy .599
    #25 LSU .593
    #28 California .588
    #35 Florida International .580
    #43 Tulane .569
    #56 Southeastern Louisiana .554
    #68 Florida Atlantic .545
    #77 Louisiana .540 (Base RPI .5350 #78)
    #78 Western Kentucky .540
    #86 South Alabama .532
    .
    .
    .
    #101 UCLA .525 (UCLA has been disappointing)

    The Cajuns are 2-1 against the Base RPI Top 25, 3-3 vs. the Base RPI Top 50, and 4-3 vs. the Base Top 75. The upcoming Rice (#19 Base RPI) and Troy (#18 Base RPI) games are particularly important for this category of the resume. Florida International (#37 Base RPI) may or may not hang in the Top 50, but should remain in the Top 75. Unfortunately, seven of these eight games are on the road, with only one of the games being a possibility for an RPI bonus. Finally, Southeastern Louisiana (#58 Base RPI) is sliding again this year and may or may not remain in the Top 75.

    Paul calculated the Adjusted RPI for me. The Cajuns are at #76 (.5398) entering today. This Adjusted RPI is more accurate (relative to the official NCAA RPI) than the Pseudo-RPI.

    Obviously...an important game tomorrow night against Rice. They currenly have an RPI ranking of "22".

    Btw...the SunBelt is currently the 6th ranked conference. Not bad.

    The Cajuns (#69 in the Adjusted RPI) are a miniscule .0007 away from #67 and .0013 from #65. #70 is .0015 behind the Cajuns.

    Southern Miss is playing some great baseball right now. That canceled game with them could have been big for us.
