But as has been said I'm guessing several thousand times on this board, if the Cats win they are in. Take care of business, do NOT leave it up the committee.

I disagree. There is a difference between team 180 and team 350 and it should be measured as such. The RPI just does a terrible job at measuring that difference. The whole method of the RPI is ridiculous.

Other metrics do a significantly better job at ranking each teams, which makes it easier to evaluate each teams performance.

Also, in order to have a legitimate system, you have to take into account margin of victory. Without it, you may have a system that is politically correct. But it will also be deeply flawed.

I think we will see a day when the RPI is just one of the computer tools on sheet used by the commitee. The old RPI was stick a heck of lot better than the new one.

Now if we can figure out a way to get college football to move to 32 team playoff.....
