    RPI is half opponents records. The way for UF opponents to have the best record no matter how good or bad they are is for them to play a weak out of conference schedules [OOC ]schedules. Three of UF's opponents are judged by ESPN as playing among the weakest OOC schedules.

    You're assuming that these teams actually win with their awful schedules. :)

    Even if they win all the games with their respective easy schedules, it probably won't help Florida much. Half of RPI is your opponents records, but the other half is your opponent's opponent's records. That's why a team with a 22-8 record against a top 10 SOS will have a much higher RPI than a team 26-4, but a SOS in the 150 range.

    It's not a good thing you are playing teams with poor schedules. In fact, it can only hurt. Even if Arkansas, Miss St., and aTm have good OOC records, their SEC records will counter-balance the wins, and doubtful any of these three will have RPI's better than 100. Beating these teams will do nothing for Florida. However, lose to one of them, and now you have a bad loss on your resume, and your RPI suffers.

    Many RPIs are 2/3 opponents record and 1/3 opponents opponents record.

    Well there is a better chance that they will win with their awful schedule than if they had schedule tougher. Still you are correct, if their record is not better, UF does not benefit and would benefit by them scheduling up with the same record.

    It really was .25*(winning percentage) + .5*(opponents winning percentage) + .25*(opponents opponents winning percentage) before they started the home and away weighting system.

    So as GatorRade said, opponents scheduling down can hurt UF is if they are going to lose the same number of games anyway.

    I don't think that the Committee really uses RPI other than a convenient excuse to keep out weak teams with gaudy records because they played nobodies that would wanted to keep out anyway.

    Added in edit:

    Here is your RPI #1 seeds from last year:

    Duke
    New Mexico
    Louisville
    Miami (FL)

    Only one (Louisville) was a #1.

    New Mexico was a 3 and was beaten by Harvard.
