How do the various computer rankings rate the teams so far?

This type of comparison will be interesting at the end of December (and afterwards). Right now it means nothing because in most cases the rankings are based on some preset values (usually based on last year), or there is far too little data for it to be meaningful (RPI). As for the averaging, your use of several different systems and providing equal weight to each might make sense if their calculations were essentially independent. But as I look at the ratings you have both RPI and real time RPI. Over time I believe these two would essentially track, except for timing, but as of now I believe the real time RPI is using no data from this season..

Your calculations do give me an idea. All polls and all computer systems have inherent biases. I happen to think that the people on this forum are among the smartest women's college basketball analysts in the country (not all of them of course), and would probably be more qualified than the panel from either the AP or USA Today. If there is sufficient interest (at least 10 people), I would propose our own poll to start after the games of Sunday December 31, and each Sunday thereafter. I could tabulate the results and have a poll out before the AP.

Real Time RPI also does Power Rankings, independent of RPI, which is shown above

I'll bet they're 3rd. That also explains why he lists 25 teams in his table but only 24 teams in his composite ranking. We still appreciate the effort, pilight!

Just a guy who has been doing rankings for a long time. Like Kenneth Massey and Jeff Sagarin, but less well known.
