Quick and Dirty RPI Rankings

A quick and dirty RPI for the ACC and SEC of games through Sat Jan 27... doesn't include all the rankings of wins vs teams 1-50, 51-100, etc. I follow a basic formula which I feel is pretty indicative of a teams performance.

50% is a teams win/loss record
40% is a teams strength of schedule
10% is a human factor i.e. poll

Team W/L % PTS Opp W/L % PTS Objective Factor PTS TOTAL RANK

SEC ranks slightly better overall with avg rank of 11.7. The SEC lacks the star power with Florida being the dominant team, but from top to bottom the conference is very strong. Look for more in-depth rankings to come in the future.
