6 Committee Metric used 2/4/2018
UC: RPI--11, Kenpom--5, Sagarin--6, BPI--6, ESPN SOR--10 and KPI--9.

X: RPI--3, Kenpom--16,Sagarin--10, BPI--14, ESPN SOR--4 and KPI--6.

UC looks as strong or stronger than X, don't think X is a #1 seed.

RE: 6 Committee Metric used 2/4/2018
Those numbers show UC is a better team. RPI is worthless due to having no margin of victory. Strength of record says that X has had better wins which none of us would dispute. The comprehensive measurements of team quality show us as a top 6 team and them outside the top 10.

X is an obvious candidate for high seed most likely to get upset early, followed likely by Duke.

X will probably end up a 2.

UC a 3 or 4

I don't see how you see UC as possibly stronger when X is ranked higher in three of the five metrics. That being said, X doesn't deserve a one seed. My hunch is a 2 and a 3 for UC.

Because the ones designed to measure the quality of your team Kenpom, Sagarin, and BPI all favor UC. Honestly I don't know about KPI that may do the same thing in which case 3/4 would favor us. I place zero relevance on RPI and strength of record is more a measure of what you've done vs how good you are.

KPI is designed to rank resumes not team quality.

I agree though with most this post. Rpi doesn't tell you anything worthwhile.

Kpi and SOR are both measures that do a pretty decent job of measuring resume. X ranks higher in both. The predictive metrics that measure team quality all favor uc usually by a good amount.

Pundits now giving X love on the #1 line because of Duke loss, not seeing it when the three metrics about team quality favor UC who will not be a one seed, still a month to go. There are six metrics.

What is the obsession with X? It keeps creeping into several threads. Who freaking cares what they are doing.

Agree, and the mention that we are better. They crushed us head to head. I sounds very hollowwwwwwwwwww when we claim superior through metrics.
