What is RPI?

Rating Percentage Index. Basically, it is strength of schedule. The NCAA multiples your win percentage, your opponents' win percentage, and your opponents' opponents' win percentage, to reach a pure math factor. The higher the factor, the better off you are, because only the Top 33 receive an RPI rank.

Oh by the way - you must have wrestled a minimum of 17 D1 matches in your particular weight class, too. You cannot wrestle 2 matches, win both, and bring a 100% win percentage to the table. However, the 17 match cutoff does not apply to your opponents, nor your opponents' opponents. That is, you don't get penalized for wrestling guys whose season was cut short by injury, or otherwise weren't able to wrestle 17 D1 matches.

Nevils would not get an at large bid. However, if he finishes top 7 then one of the wrestlers who earned that spot for the conference could possibly get an at large bid. That is the same scenario for Snyder. Snyder will most definitely grab one of the top seven placements, and if Nevils does the same then two of the wrestlers at heavyweight in that conference whom earned conference slots would need at large bids. That posees quite the problem since they would also need to finish eighth and ninth most likely. Talk about throwing a monkey wrench into things.

Morelli gets the #9 spot in RPI but doesn't appear in the coaches rankings. Are there any other similar situations (not caused by lack of matches)? 

Since you have to be a designated starter to get an RPI, the 165 battle @ PSU is decided.  Or is this old news?  Same logic applies to Chandler Rogers.

Not necessarily - coaches can submit a name to see how it pans out for rankings and RPI - but if the name submitted doesn't earn a slot, then there is no penalty for making a switch prior to the conference tourney.

It appears as though Rodgers earned the AQ at 174. If OSU decides to go with Crutchmer the AQ goes back to the at-large pool.

Being the complete homer that I am, I couldn't help but notice that Mizzou had 9 ranked in the coaches poll, and 8 of them were ranked higher in RPI (Cox being #2 in both).  Any other team come close to that?  Does that mean that Mizzou is consistently underranked, or their schedule was off the charts difficult, or just a pure coincidence?

Nevills should be at least a Bronze standard after BigTens and qualify for an at large bid if needed. That's why he went out to Colorado last weekend for that tournament. 

We'll see.

He takes top 7 among a capable group (not including Snyder) then he makes it really easy on everyone.

 

If not, and he ends up a WC then Kudos to Cael for knowing all the details to put him in position to be selected.

Yea, I'm not saying it's guaranteed. Would much rather see him grab a spot at BigTens and avoid relying on math formulas. 

 Yea, FT, I think it will be tuff for him to earn an at large bid. Below are the bronze criteria. He is 5-1 going into the big tournament.  If he goes 2-2(would be 7-3, so he would make winning%, but a 1-2 or 2-3 he does not).  Still think he finishes in top 7, but the backside of this bracket is going to be crazy.

 

Wrestlers that meet two or more of the 'bronze' criteria will be labeled bronze standard and eligible for at large selection. Standards include: .700 overall winning percentage, top 33 RPI (taken after the qualifying tournaments), top 33 coaches ranking; one win against a wrestler receiving AQ via an earned position preallocated); qualifying event placement one below AQ.

A win against a wrestler receiving automatic qualification must be against an opponent in a qualifying tournament that had an earned automatic qualification through a gold or silver standard.

Believe if following rankings and records last few months would see that both K Crutchmer (15-4) and C Rogers (24-6) have been in position to qualify the spot (both in the top 10, Rodgers - not so much), as opposed to Weigel and Andrew Marsden have been close to see if either could get the matches and wins to qualify a spot.

I understand that. My response was in reply to redblades' post, which basically suggested that coaches could make a lineup switch at 174 without the penalty of losing an AQ for the conference.
