Palm Reader newest cool RPI, Bracketology tool

There is a new feature on the site that will help you know who you should be rooting for to improve your team's RPI. It's the Palm Reader, which you can find on the bracketology page using the far right link in the orange bar.

It brings up a page (defaulting to the top-rated team) which shows the team's RPI and rank on the left, and exactly which teams you need to root for on today's schedule on the right.

Also on the left is a box where you can enter another team's name. As you type, a drop down list will appear where you can select your team. Note that it has to match the spelling of the team in our database. Some things are abbreviated. For example, North Carolina State comes up as N.C. State.

Below the box is the full nitty gritty report.

Another great tool was introduced late last season, and that's the team comparison tool. You can find that second from the right end of the orange bar. That allows you to compare two teams in much the same way the selection committee does.

Try them out and let us know what you think in the comments!
