    I realize Amuchastegui missed a bunch of time, but I'd have expected to make the ranking somewhere.

    By far the best ranking of the bunch - Cameron Wade at #2. Everyone can put him in the NCAA finals right now.

    I think Flores is also missing.

    How exactly are these generated?

    Apparently with beer and darts. Not sure if they actually used the blindfold.

    wikipedia

    The Rating Percentage Index, commonly known as the RPI, is a quantity used to rank sports teams based upon a team's wins and losses and its strength of schedule. It is one of the systems by which NCAA basketball and baseball teams are ranked. This system has been in use in college basketball since 1981 [1] to aid in the selecting and seeding of teams appearing in the 68-team men's playoffs (see March Madness), and for the 64-team women's tournament since its inception in 1982. In its current formulation, the index comprises a team's winning percentage (25%), its opponents' winning percentage (50%), and the winning percentage of those opponents' opponents (25%). The opponents' winning percentage and the winning percentage of those opponents' opponents both comprise the strength of schedule (SOS). Thus, the SOS accounts for 75% of the RPI calculation and is 2/3 its opponents' winning percentage and 1/3 times its opponents' opponents' winning percentage.

    The RPI lacks theoretical justification from a statistical standpoint. Other ranking systems which include the margin of victory of games played or other statistics in addition to the win/loss results have been shown to be a better predictor of the outcomes of future games. Because the margin of victory has been manipulated in the past by teams or individuals in the context of gambling, the RPI can be used to mitigate motivation for such manipulation.

    Some feel that the heavy emphasis upon strength of schedule gives an unfair advantage to teams from major conferences. Teams from "majors" are allowed to pick many of their non-conference opponents (oftentimes blatantly weaker teams). Teams from minor conferences, however, may only get one or two such opponents in their schedules. Also, some mid-major conferences regularly compel their member teams to schedule opponents ranked in the top half of the RPI, which could boost the strength of that conference and/or its tougher-scheduling teams. In basketball, the Missouri Valley Conference has successfully done this: It has become one of the top-rated RPI conferences, despite having very few of its teams ranked in the two national Top 25 polls. [1] In 2006, the NCAA began to release their RPI calculations weekly starting in January. Independent sources, such as ESPN or CNN/SI, also publish their own RPI calculations, which are updated more frequently.

    Obviously this ranking system has many flaws.

    133 1 Carter Devin Virginia Tech
    133 2 Ramos Tony Iowa
    133 3 Stieber Logan Ohio State
    133 5 Oliver Jordan Oklahoma State

    Logan Stieber against #1 and #2
    11/20/2011 Carter, Devin Virginia Tech 133 W DEC 6 - 1
    1/22/2012 Ramos, Tony Iowa 133 W DEC 7 - 0

    Campo is overrated at 197 in 11th.

    I doubt Flores has enough matches. Some of the other guys though I have no idea.
