Ok I'm going to use UCA as an example. While I think it's cool another University from Arkansas is actually playing quality baseball, I don't understand the RPI.

According to Warren, they have two wins vs. the top 50. 17 wins (over half) have been from 200+ RPI wins. How can their RPI be so high? What part of the formula is keeping that number so high? I would think playing 200+ teams it would drop even as they win.

Ok, now the flip side to that. Arkansas has 11 wins vs. top 50 7 vs the top 25 yes they have one or two bad losses early. So two bad losses that heavily outweighs 7 wins vs the RPI top 25?

Again, admittedly I don't know the formula or how it's calculated. I'm asking just to see if someone can explain that to me? I'm sure are plenty other teams that prove both my points. These are just teams that I happen to be familiar with.
