My impression of the rating system is that is fails to recognize the strength of schedule played of the UIL teams. There are some Division Two schools like Throckmorton, Gordon and Strawn that regularly play top Division One teams before district play and some Division Two schools which play almost exclusively private schools or even home school teams. Another thing I noticed are that most of the Panhandle UIL teams seldom play out of their area and two or three of those schools will have undefeated records until the playoffs where they get bombed. But the rating system still shows those Panhandle teams highly rated throughout the season even through the playoffs but they played against a lot of marginal competition. Definitely an apple vs oranges rating system.
