Carrying forward from last year, over the course of the season I'll be running a simulation of the full season. I'll be posting weekly simulated Adjusted RPI ratings and rankings, simulated standings of teams within their conferences and conference tournament results, and a simulated NCAA Tournament bracket. I'll be posting these at the RPI and Bracketology for D1 Women's Soccer Blogspace. I've just finished up the four opening posts at the Blogspace: 2018 PRE-SEASON FULL SEASON SIMULATION: HOW I DO IT 2018 PRE-SEASON SIMULATED END-OF-SEASON STANDINGS 2018 PRE-SEASON SIMULATED TEAMS' CONFERENCE END-OF-SEASON STANDINGS AND CONFERENCE TOURNAMENT RESULTS 2018 SEASON SIMULATION END-OF-SEASON NCAA TOURNAMENT BRACKET If you are interested in following the simulation results, I suggest you read the first post (How I Do It) first, as it describes the process and assumptions that underlie the simulations. Early in the season, you have to take the simulation with a very big grain of salt. As the season progresses, each week I substitute actual game results for simulated results. This means that from week to week, the simulation will come progressively closer to how the season will end up.
