Actually ... tied for #9! I've been touting Delaware as a potential #3 seed for over a month now.

Every #2 seed would love to have them as the #3 in their region. I suspect they will end up as a 4 or 5

Last night's losses hurt MD more than TN. On the computer portion of the poll (Sagarin & Massey), Maryland falls behind TN, causing the Vols to actually move up to #5. KY makes a big move up to #9, and DE has started slipping.

More movement to come once the latest RPI and AP rankings released.

How does the voting actually work?
I mean did Delaware actually get 594 first place votes???????????????

It's a composite ranking. I combined the Sagarin, Massey, RPI, and AP rankings.

Just curious what formula did you use?

Slightly complicated ...

Top scoring team (in terms of votes or computer value) gets 1000 pts.
#75 team gets 100 pts. (Below 75 gets 0.)
In between teams are scaled, again based on votes/value.
Point total across the 4 ranking systems are averaged and rescaled again to a 1000-point system.

Because the RPI can be a bit wacky, it doesn't get full weighting as the other 3 just yet. But since the RPI gets better as there are more games, but I'm increasing its weighting as the season progresses.

It's an arbitrary formula, but so is pretty much any other formula. It allowed me to combine the 4 measures, without relying merely on the ranking which I don't like since it assumes the gap between every position is the same. Using the rating can better capture the differences betwixt teams (imho).

=========================
For the curious technical folks ... here's an example:

Baylor is top-rated at 105.36 in Sagarin, giving them 1000 points.
James Madison is 75th rated at 77.72, giving them 100 points.
UConn is at 102.65, translating to 912 points. ==> (102.65 -77.72)/(105.36-77.72)*900 + 100 = 912

Baylor now #1 in RPI, so they are tops in all polls and have a perfect score of 1000.

Delaware down to #12.
