[quote]Does everyone start with the same ELO?[/quote] No. Which is why it’s better than RPI at this point.[quote]Are the jumps and falls bigger at the beginning and decrease the more data points available? I play a lot of chess, and that’s how it works on chess.com[/quote] I do not know....

[quote]Absolutely. I also wonder why he chooses ELO for baseball when they still use RPI on the committee.[/quote] Dude you are super thick. RPI is trash right now. I specifically said ELO is only better before we get a couple weeks into conference play. I’ll use RPI once it gets settled....

ELO Rankings are generally almost as accurate as any Top 25 poll can be at this point in the season. In fact, the ELO rankings are super similar to the current Top 25 polls. It’s not like RPI where the #1 team is a 7-8 Northern Idaho team for the first 4 weeks. At this point in the season, no...
