I love Ken Pomeroy

Not only is he a blogger, but he is also willing to provide the data that allows folks every where to compute all manner of rankings. This week, he scooped ESPN's paid service, the Inside RPI by noticing from a few stray comments, that the RPI that they'd all assumed was the one that the NCAA used was likely not so, and he was man enough to admit it. Now he has received confirmation:

Regarding the previous post on the RPI formula: I got some unexpected confirmation that indeed, the formula I am now posting is the one being used by the selection committee. Makes me glad I never charged for this stuff.

Well, Ken, should our beloved Jayhawks find themselves in St. Louis and should you make the trek to said Midwestern city, I will buy you the beer of your choice. Excellent work - please know it's not thankless.
