Gonzaga is an “easy omission” too though, as their RPI is 36. Their resume ranks are as weak as Rhode Island’s quality ranks. If the question was whether the committee was going to do away with RPI completely and just go with the computer numbers, sure, we have our answer – but was that really a question? The more open question is whether the committee will value more the super average or the straight up RPI.
And yes, I think the quadrants will be very important, and they are RPI based, though they do take location into account.
