The minimum number of Conference 'A' and above games to be eligible for the Computer Rankings is currently 14.    

The computer rankings rules have been unchanged since its beginning in 2008.

SOS stand for "Strength of Schedule"
Rankings Formula explained:         
Each team receives:          
 8 points for defeating a Major class team        
 5 points for defeating an AA class team        
 2 points for defeating a A class team        
 1 points for defeating a B class team        
Each team receives an additional:        
 8 points for winning a tournament        
 6 points for finishing 2nd         
 4 points for finishing 3rd         
 2 points for finishing 4th         
And finally each team has their point total reduced by:       
 1 point for each time they lose to a major team       
 2 points for losing to an AA team         
 3 points for losing to an A team         
 4 points for losing to a B team         
 5 points for losing to a C team         
 6 points for losing to a D team         
 8 points for losing to an E team.         
Each teams total points are then divided by the number of games they have played against upper level (Major, A, and B) teams.
So the formula in mathmatical terms would be:        
AveragePointsPerGame =          
/ (total games vs M, AA, A, B)         
In short the formula is:
AveragePointsPerGame =         
((weighted wins against upper teams)        
+ (weighted top 4 in tournament finishes)        
– (weighted losses))          
/ (# of upper games)          
The average points per game is then sorted highest to lowest and those are the rankings.

    Where’s STL/ mizuno

    • DW says:

      STL Mizuno did not qualify for the computer rankings yet. You currently have to have at least 3 games against ‘B’ or higher opponents to get a rating.

    Hey DW. Hope all is well. How does Resmondo rank higher than Backman? Looks like Backman has them in every category except ‘Loss vs AA’, where Res is ‘0’ and Backman is at ‘1’.
    Really doesn’t affect my life either way. Just wondering how the math works.
    Take care.

    • DW says:

      .04 difference is a virtual tie.

      But it looks like Resmondos wins against B and above are mostly AA and Major whereas Backman has lesser wins so to speak beating a lot of ‘A’ teams.

      Resmondos strength of schedule is a little higher also.

      It is too early to take the computer rankings seriously I would look at them seriously after Chicago in early June.

    Damn I guess STL/Mizuno don’t get rated.
