ESPN came out with a new thing similar to RPI. This is how they explain it:
"Created by the ESPN Stats & Information group, the College Basketball Power Index (BPI) is a team rating that accounts for all team scores in every Division I game, whether they were at home, on the road, or on a neutral court, whether they won, the pace of the game, the strength of their opponent, and whether any of their top five players (by minutes per game) was missing."
Anyways, it seems interesting to me, particularly since Tennessee is ranked 76, which I think can go up quickly if we win a couple more games. It would theoretically deweight the Stokes-less games, so that would help us
