USA's 3 losses have been to #9/#11 Alabama, #13/#14 JMU, and McNeese State. And those that know softball know that Alabama and JMU are good and McNeese is no joke.

21 home games and the majority of them crap; that won't do any RPI favors

I was just correcting the record. I don't follow softball as closely as you do, we are usually decent but we are typically good at so many sports it is hard to kee up with everything.

Wasn't meaning to come off as something at you; just simply shocked at the schedule. Usually a road trip is sprinkled in somewhere.

I don't follow it closely enough to know if this is how we typically schedule or not but 21 straight home games does seem a bit much. I'm sure a lot of it is being able to leverage Myrtle Beach much like our baseball team does.

RE: Softball question
I don't know that home/road matter for the RPI in softball like it does in baseball. The only way it would is if the Big 10 complained enough about playing on the road early in the season.

Unless it has very recently changed, it doesn't matter.

This is correct. Softball still uses the base formula (25% your record/50% SOS/25% Opponents SOS) with bonuses and penalties for wins vs base RPI Top 50 and losses vs 225 and below to adjust. I believe they took out bonuses when its vs a team in your conference to help curb the inflation of power conference RPIs

Baseball has the same base formula (25/50/25) but uses the home/road factors for their adjustment

That is correct. The in-conference bonus removal was thanks to Coach Lotief and lots of data from an ex-UL graduate who is very good at statistics. This was following year after year where the Cajuns would be in the top 5 starting conference and drop out of the top 16 (and hosting) by winning all their conference games. A home/away adjustment was also proposed but was not approved.
