But that's gasp, giving teams credit for how the teams actually are and not how they're supposed to be. What a novel concept. If I play team x and they're supposed to be something, but they totally crap the bed, why should I get all that much credit? but then again, if I play team y, and they're supposed to suck, but they come out of no where and have a great season, why shouldn't I get credit?

I agree, but I wonder if they overcompensated on road games, because now they're treating a road win against a 135 RPI team with the same weight as a home win against a 31 RPI team.

This might also lead to more home-neutral games, since it doesn't appear to distinguish between UNC vs. UCLA in Kansas City and UNC v. UCLA in Greensboro.

Like when BYU during their NC season got a ton of credit for beating #3 Pittsburgh on the road, a same Pitt team that finished 3-9. In retrospect, beating Pitt was no big deal, but BYU jumped a lot of teams because of the perception at the time.

You've never heard of injuries, or switching strategies?

If it happens this way more often than the other way, then it is correct to do it base off end of season rankings.

But if happens the other way more than this way, it should be correct to base the ranking on when the teams play.

RE: NCAA selection process
using the Big East from last year-

games that were tier 1 but now are tier 2-
home games vs #32 Creighton, #46 Seton Hall
games that were tier 2 but are now tier 1-
away games vs #61 Providence, #67 Marquette
games that were tier 3 but are now tier 2-
away game vs #115 Georgetown
games that were tier 4 but are now tier 3-
away game vs #236 DePaul

so a net 2 spot improvement...

So basically, they are going to look at some different metrics, and if that still doesn't give them the result they are looking for, then they will decide based on their gut, just like they always have. What else is new?

Might help mid-majors get more quality NC home games.

That won't happen often. Teams are not going to lose sight of economics and burn their season ticket holders by moving their best non-conference home games out of their home arena. The top teams will continue to play those made-for-ESPN one-offs in NYC or Chicago or wherever, but they're not going to leave their most loyal supporters with nothing but Southern Manitoba State games for a home schedule.

RE: NCAA selection process
So does this change anything Steve? Is this really going to push more mid-majors into the tournament? Or is this just fluff to make someone feel better about the process?

RE: NCAA selection process
I really don't think it's going to impact the mid majors as some folks think. I mean, look at what I posted earlier with Illinois St. I think any games that they might gain in the 51-75 road category they may lose in the 31-50 home range.
