WOW, Surprise it's The Ohio State Buckeyes from the B1G....wait till we beat them, then we will have taken down a #1 Ranked team. This system obviously will not work unless the teams played against is ranked via their respective school sizes or conferences, before getting to margin of victory calculated in.

We are ranked at #125 btw.

At this point I'd imagine it's a bunch of statistical noise, and in another month or so the numbers will more accurately reflect where teams are at.
It's all statistical noise, it will never be a true indicator on abilities, as witnessed by it's first and only reveal so far.

It seems like the selection committee is evolving. Evidently they have created a new ranking system called NET ranking and this is being used instead of RPI.

So my first question is what is NET ranking and how does it differ from RPI? Just for reference, Illinois is 130 in NET ranking and 155 in RPI according to teamrankings.com. That is a pretty large difference.
