@BostonBay needs to get a bigger and better radar me think. :rolleyes:
Or, he/she may want to read a few preseason women's college basketball polls before writing something silly and borderline uninformed in this thread. Most of the UConn opinions that BostonBay has posted are defensible and logical. This recent one about Oregon State seemed to be a response to the Beavers being evaluated and ranked close to where UConn is right now.

I must say, I'm a bit disappointed in our caucus of eager Beavers. Failing to pounce with their usual verve on the Skeptics. 3 out of 10.

Perhaps simply showing some reluctance to pounce on a pro-UConn supporter on the UConn message board. Not typically a good idea.

Everybody knows the Buckeyes are tOSU (THE Ohio State University) :rolleyes:

But the post being referred to frequently specifically said Oregon St.

@willtalk I had no real critical thinking when it came between choosing Massey over RPI other than I'm used to looking at Massey. In my ignorance, I didn't realize it used the last 10 games. So that was my error.


I've updated the table below to have the current Massey SOS and the RPI SoS (from RealTimeRPI) for a comparison. Also, removed Providence and did alphabetical order...Not sure if it's an order I like yet.

*RPI had these teams with one loss. Not sure why. Also, listed Mississippi State and Indiana as undefeated.
Colorado, for what it’s worth (not much), now 9-0. Imagine how good they would be if the top player in the state didn’t choose Stanford and the top high school,player this year going....?
Last night, Texas A&M did indeed remove TCU from the unbeaten list. Leaves 14 unbeatens.

Tonight, one unbeaten plays: Colorado (8-0) plays Denver.
[/QUOTEColorado wins in big rout to go 9-0.

Still 14 unbeaten teams. Last night, Colorado was able to hang on winning 96-70.

Tonight Oregon St. risks their unbeaten record taking on Utah St. I anticipate the game to be close through warm-ups!!
The game itself is on Saturday night...and "risks"? When Oregon St goes up against that powerhouse Mountain West juggernaut Utah State with a lofty 2-6 record coupled with an RPI of 271 and an SOS 206...risk is not the word I would use, more like going to a bake sale. :rolleyes:

Yeah, I watched the Colorado “nail biter.” By the end I half expected CU to put in the cheerleaders after clearing the bench.

Could somebody point me to where it definitively says Massey uses the last 10 games? We know they start the season "priming the pump" with some data from last year - but I'm not aware of anything that specifically says "last 10 games".
They don't eliminate the previous year results until a team plays 10 games. After that it uses every current year game. However, it weighs the more recent games more heavily and it gives added weight to games against higher rated teams. There is also what would be best described as a rule of diminishing returns. Beating 4 teams ranked 48-51 (average 50.5) is not rated as high as playing 4 teams ranked 1, 2, 98, 101 (average 50.5)

Instead of asking someone to explain a rather complicated algorithm I suggest interested posters should go to the site and read.

But where does it say specifically that it's after 10 games that the previous year's results are eliminated?

I DID NOT ask somebody to explain how the math works (I'm an engineer and actually the math is really rather simple - lots of math, but simple math. If you wanted to, you could make a spreadsheet that does the math).

What I did ask, was where it says specifically 10 games. I looked at the links you provided, and either I still missed it, or it doesn't say that at all.
