We'd be 1-1 head to head and undefeated otherwise, so the #1 seed tiebreaker is a coin flip.Of course, the odds that State finishes the ACC conference with one lose to Duke and that Duke goes undefeated for the rest of the regular season is really, really small.

The current and commonly used formula for determining the RPI of a college basketball team at any given time is as follows.
RPI = (WP * 0.25) + (OWP * 0.50) + (OOWP * 0.25)
where WP is Winning Percentage, OWP is Opponents' Winning Percentage and OOWP is Opponents' Opponents' Winning Percentage.
The WP is calculated by taking a team's wins divided by the number of games it has played (i.e. wins plus losses).
For Division 1 NCAA Men's basketball, the WP factor of the RPI was updated in 2004 to account for differences in home, away, and neutral games. A home win now counts as 0.6 win, while a road win counts as 1.4 wins. Inversely, a home loss equals 1.4 losses, while a road loss counts as 0.6 loss. A neutral game counts as 1 win or 1 loss.

Indeed -if we beat the CHeats we will stay ranked - if we beat them by 10 (I'm dreaming I know) then we might stay about where we are now - in the pollster's minds beating UNC-CHeat and Duke in the same 2 weeks will outweigh the hiccups on the road.We are a few made ft's from being 6-0 ACC.
GO PACK!!! BEAT THE CHeats!Lots of things working for us - night game, home game, rivalry game, extra day to prepare - and coming of a close loss.
WE WILL WIN!!!

I think we kicked his dog or something :)
Actually - it takes away points for lack of defense - which is why back in the "old" days under Herb - we would usually be better in Pomeroy than in the other 2 ratings systems.
As long as we keep winning - it will take care of itself.
GO PACK!!! BEAT UVA!!!!

Unc @ miami could be a loss, but unc has already lost to miami at chapel hill. Who do they play that could seriously challenge them? They get to play va tech, ga tech, & wake a ton. Personally, I don't see Miami with more than 3 losses, if that. NCSU & Duke will probably need to focus on the real tourney.

adamant wrote: Yeah - its kind of different - most years we had a really bad RPI - but Sagarin and Pomeroy would be about the same level and show us as better - this year our RPI has been the highest with Sagarin lower but still good and Pomeroy even lower.Just one of those things - and shows why no formula can be taken as THE formula.The ratings I like best are the ones from dancecard (they have not put out any yet for this year) as they get the NCAA tourney teams nearly all correct each year - they had us in at the end of last year and I was not worried on selection Sunday even when they left us as the last one up on the board :)GO PACK!!! BEAT THE HOOS!!!after Sunday's games (1/27/13) :RPI #15Pomeroy #38Sagarin #19
