    UL Baseball Adjusted RPI (4/6)

    After Tuesday's action, the Cajuns came in at #59 in the Adjusted RPI (.5508). The Cajuns' Base RPI is #63 (.5436). The Cajuns have RPI bonuses of .0024 (#4 USM win on the road), .0024 (#14 LSU win on the road), and .0024 (#23 Rice win on the road). Due to the remainder of the schedule, there are no more opportunities for RPI bonuses (I do not anticipate McNeese State moving from #127 into the Top 75). Thus, this is the best the Cajuns will be able to do with respect to RPI bonus. Of course, the Cajuns' RPI bonus can drop below .0072 should USM, LSU, or Rice fall into the next tier.

    At this point, the Cajun resume would not get them into the field of 64. But they are getting into striking range. Conference play is extremely important right now and if they keep winning a good portion of their games, they will be fine.

    Certainly. Especially in conference. The Cajuns do not need to dig themselves out of a hole to finish in the top 2 or 3 in conference. They are already there and can secure top 2 with a series win this weekend.

    What about Troy, do you not forsee them being strong enough to give us some RPI bonuses or are you only talking OOC games?

    I think we match up well with any team in the country right now. We are hot....smoking hot. We can pitch, we can field, we can hit, and we can run. The only thing we can't do is let it stop. Ride the wave all the way to a Regional.

    The RPI bonus only applies to non-conference road games. The RPI penalty only applies to non-conference home games.

    The Cajuns were clustered with a number of teams up to #53 (Louisville). The Cajuns passed the majority of them mostly due to Cajun opponents' play last night (resulting in a relatively significant increase in the Cajuns' RPI).

    I would like to see my suggestion of playing more "bad" teams that are likely to have good records (due to weak schedules) implemented, as this is a way to goose your RPI and game the system.

    I know I should let it go but I just cant. How big of a difference would that first game against southern miss with the blown call to end it have made if we would have taken both of those games?

    Assuming the Cajuns would have gone on to win that game (after being tied with two outs in T9th) ... it would have been rather significant.

    In terms of RPI, the Cajuns would have qualified for an additional .0024 bonus. Additionally, the Cajuns' WP would have risen from .6071 to .6429. This would mean a Base RPI of the following ...

    (.6429 + (2*.5231) + .5211)/4 = .5526

    This is compared to a Base RPI of .5436 (with the loss)

    Add in the additional RPI bonus and you have an Adjusted RPI of .5622.

    So, the difference (after Tuesday's results) would have been an Adjusted RPI of .5622 vs. .5508. This would have placed the Cajuns at #49 after Tuesday, instead of #59.

    I cannot tell where we would be today until I get the new Adjusted RPI details through Wednesday's games. But we would have a nice jump in the Adjusted RPI (maybe about .0030 -> .0035). This would put us, at minimum, at #48 and possibly as high as #46 or #47.

    Now that we have the numbers from 4/7, we can say that a sweep of USM would have resulted in the following through last night's games ...

    Base RPI .5564 ... good for #51 (vs. the actual .5475 good for #58) ... Duke also has a .5564, but the Cajuns would have been exactly .00003 ahead of the Blue Devils.

    Adjusted RPI .5630 ... good for #48 (vs. the actual .5541 good for #54)
