For the past few years, one of the tools I've used to help me determine how I seed teams is a ranking tool/index I've designed.  Sure it has flaws, and no I don't follow it completely - but it's similar to the RPI - it's simply another tool to help figure it all out.  Please note that only teams under consideration for the tournament are included, and only D1 records are shown and used.  I won't reveal my formula although I will tell you it is a weighted system and does NOT take into account any human polls, so this is merely for your viewing and arguing pleasure. I will update this daily starting in mid January.
