I would be good with those final standings. I think Nebraska would be on the bubble to make a regional. Probably on the good side with a strong showing against Michigan to end the year.

Isn't WN irrelevant for B1G baseball in 2021?
The RPI is irrelevant for purposes of comparison to the rest of college baseball. But future games can still be predicted based on past results. I’d say picking Michigan and Indiana at the top will be fairly reliable.

It is weird, though, that the predictions for total games played is 39-41 per team. I don’t know if that’s a glitch or if the formula assumes a few games will be lost.

Warren Nolan is all messed this year. They only have us with 40 games on their schedule page - 3 games next weekend with Minny (?) (no, it's 4) and no Michigan series at all.

I checked their Michigan, Maryland and Indiana pages and they're just as wrong. Says Michigan and Maryland have 41 games and Indiana 40.

That's all wrong, of course.

Warren Nolan has been corrected. Current records are now accurate and predictions are for the full schedule.

It predicts Nebraska finishing second, one game behind Michigan, at 31-13. I would be happy with that. But, since the Huskers are in first place at the moment (man, that feels good!) the title is the goal.
