What is wrong with Boyd's this year....... Is it due to a small sample size or what?

They have Yale at #3, Xavier at #5, Connecticut at #6 and some school called Bryant at #17 at 4-5. Not to mention Northwestern at #19 at 4-6.

It seems like there is much more parity in baseball this year than in years past.

Everyone has their own way of ranking teams, whether statistics are used or not. This is just another. You should see how many people rip D1 Baseball's poll each week. And theirs is usually very close to accurate after a week or so.

Not being difficult, but do you realize what Boyd's is?

This is by far, the best replica to the NCAA's RPI poll. This poll is the best public barometer available until the NCAA begins to release their RPI. It is amazingly close and identical to the NCAAs own poll, which is the primary tool that the NCAA uses to select teams to the tournament.

Until conference play starts, it's hard to glean anything from these RPI stats. Yale took a series from New Orleans and a game from New Mexico State, all on the road. My understanding is that 75% of the RPI is strength of schedule measured by using the opponent's winning percentage and the opponent's opponents winning percentage. So, both NM St and NO must have decent records and have played decent competition. I don't recall if you get bonus points for quality road wins.

Thanks! Makes sense. I actually have no problem with the NCAA RPI for baseball. It seems to be a good barometer.

The methodology may be a bit odd, sure, I'm going to enjoy my alma mater having a good team!

Go Elis!!
