Pomeroy on why the RPI isn't a good way to rank teams

Interesting article by KenPom on why the RPI isn't a good way to compare teams come tournament time. The simplicity of the RPI seems to go against the weight it's given by the selection committee. Seriously, are these guys so against math that they can only understand a system that has three components? Anyways, interesting stuff especially for the less numerically inclined (uh, me). Good food for thought while we wait for the NIT (Less than 24 hours, who's excited?!).
