There are generally some significant differences in NCAAB rankings between polls completed by humans and polls calculated by computers.
I’m trying to find a study of some sort that tries to show that one way or the other is more accurate when the final tournament results are in
Has anyone tried to set a point value for each team’s final level? For example, if you are in the NCAA tourney, and are eliminated in the first round, you get 1 point, etc. up to the championship game, 7 points. But, if the ranking you previously had, pre-tourney, said you should win that game, and you lost…only half the points for that level.
Holes in that, I know. does someone have a better way to evaluate the accuracy of the RPI vs. coach’s polls?
