  1. Hi Kevin, I think maybe about a year ago you did an article on how RPI is caluculated; (¼ × WP) + (½ × OWP) + (¼ × OOWP) interesting. And you speculated on different formulas for basketball. I would enjoy your updated thoughts on the pros and cons of the present forumla as compared to the pros and cons of a different formula egs 1/3, 1/3, 1/3 or something else. What do you think?

    • Donn:

      I think the formula now is 25-50-25 concerning winning percentage, opponents winning percentage and then opponents opponents winning percentage. CHSAA this week approved moving to a 30-40-30 formula in all sports starting next year. I would prefer they reduce the third number or eliminate all-together because the opponents opponents winning percentage is something outside the coaches/schools control. A school can somewhat control their own schedule and try to find games against high level opponents but they cannot control what their opponents schedule. As I’ve mentioned before, I would also like to see a second run through of RPI. Run the normal percentages and once the list is generated run a second system where teams get bonus points for beating someone ahead of them and/or lose points for losing to a team below them in the rankings. Something along that line – I think we just need to find a way to put head-to-head into the picture in some fashion. There are several instances already in the post-season where one team beat another – sometimes twice – and was seeded below that opponent. Heritage Christian and Longmont Christian boys come to mind in 1A – Rock Canyon was also the top overall seed in 5A boys even though they finished third in their conference. The Continental is a very good league and Rock Canyon is easily deserving of a top five or maybe even top three overall seed but number one and ahead of ThunderRidge and Chaparral I don’t think is correct.

      One other note from CHSAA – there is also discussions underway is using RPI to determine playoff qualifiers but then using a committee to seed those teams. That I think is a good move as then head-to-head could come into play during those discussions.

      Like every other system out there – there is good and bad with RPI. I do like the fact that we’re not afraid to look at it and make changes to the system.

      • Kevin,
        Thanks for your helpful comments. I appreciate your attention to common sense and fairness. I also noted what it looks like in some districts, is that because of the # of teams in their district, higher ranked teams are required to play a lower ranked team. As in 1 vs.8 and since 8 has usually lower winning percentage,that it looks #1 takes a ding on their RPI. Incontrast to other districts that #1 does not need to play a #8 and isn’t affected as much. But I am not sure of that.
        Again thanks for your comments,

        • some districts have intentionally given their top two teams byes into the semifinals for that very reason – to avoid the ding to the RPI – I think it’s something all districts should look at as it will help the respective league’s top teams in regional seeding.

          • Makes sense to me. And for teams that may have had a long loosing season, it might make their last game of the season and maybe their basketball career at least a somewhat competitive game rather than a blowout noncompetetive loss.
            I know that the last game for every team except one is a loss. -But these kids give so much of their heart and time to these sports and I think we need to do the best we can to treat them all right.
