Working Draft of RPI Projection

All data provided by

This is nowhere close to finished... but I'd like to go ahead and publish things to see if anyone has ideas about what else I could do with this. Or anyone has some good ideas for changes. Note that I do intend on getting rid of the characters for spacing and using some nice looking image-based headers rather than just bolded or underlined text.

along with RPI estimates and estimated final RPI ranks for each opponent

Current RPI = #72
RPI Value = 0.5593

Ole Miss(#45) –------W = 1-0 = RPI @
@ Bama(#92) –------ L = 1-1 = RPI @
@ UK(#36) –--------- L = 1-2 = RPI @
MissState(#237) –---W = 2-2 = RPI @
@ Ole Miss(#45) –--- L = 2-3 = RPI @
Bama(#92) –-------- W = 3-3 = RPI @
Vanderbilt(#180) ----- W = 4-3 = RPI @
@ Arkansas(#80) –- W = 5-3 = RPI @
Georgia(#179) –----- W = 6-3 = RPI @
@ S.Car(#234)-----– W = 7-3 = RPI @
@ Vanderbilt(#180)–W = 8-3 = RPI @
UK(#36) –----------- W = 9-3 = RPI @
LSU (#85) –---------- L = 9-4 = RPI @
@ TAMU (#99) –----- L = 9-5 = RPI @
UF(#10) –------------ L = 9-6 = RPI @
@ Georgia(#179)-----W = 10-6 = RPI @
@ Auburn(#199) ------ W = 11-6 = RPI @
Mizzou(#26) –------- W = 12-6 = RPI @

I'm using projected RPI ratings and the bonus/penalty received for a win/loss against a similar team in non-conference to project UT's RPI under my predictions. When no game has a close match I will find a non-UT game if required. Note: This is, once again, a VERY ROUGH estimate.

Similar non-conference opponent and outcome for each BasketVol conference game... and the expected impact of that game at the end of the season. RPI impact is divided into a number for a win on the left and a number for a loss on the right. Predicted outcome is highlighted.
