fajitapete's rankings(ravings)


Six-man fan
For a lot longer than I care to think about I have been working on a ranking system aka ‘a toy’. It is based on last years power rankings that I tabulated and then influenced by enrollment, last years district standing, lettermen lost, returning, and starters returning. The last 4 items are taken out of DCTF so blame him if the rankings do go the way you want.

After a lot of regression testing and trying to quantify the influence on each of these areas, I think I have my system ready to run. It will get better as time goes on as I recessively apply corrections in a 4 week moving window so hopefully towards the end of the season I will have a good ranking system. I tested the system during last years play offs and only missed 5 games. So I am going public this year.

It’s not rocket science, but seems pretty damn close to it. Anyway, I haven’t done anything with the tapps or independents. I don’t have a clue how one can harness that much data, just doing div 1 and 2 is kicking my butt. I will try to bring those teams on line this year.

So here is the first run aka preseason rankings. If this can be kept up I’ll do it all year but if work gets in the way, well I do like the paycheck. I will try to predict upcoming game as well so we can all take big ol jabs when I miss.

Throckmorton 1
Knox City 2
Gordon 3
Paint Creek 4
Yep I agree 100%,
Though KC is capable of beating them if all went perfect, I don't see it though . Gordon is a year or so away from a return to glory.
How can you possibly pick Guvna Goodhair's former team last when he's running for Prez ??? Tsk, Tsk, Tsk. He needs You, as an athletic supporter, you know, kinda like the way he supports public schools.
Gordon will have a pretty good team next year. Junior Michael Cherry should have a pretty good season for the horns.
I think Paint Creek will finish 2nd, and maybe able to pull off 1st. There team is good. But they are in a tough division. Paint Creek will have to work hard to earn there dues, but they can do it!

@51eleven I agree he even gives no support to his own school... They need a real Football Facility in Paint Creek.

@fajitapete Sorry to sound ignorant but what is DCTF?
