Re: 2017 Power Rankings


My guess would be that Catholic's Strength of Schedule is higher than Georgia's, which might help tip the balance in their favor.

They are actually pretty similar. Catholic's opponents are 89-93 and Georgia's are 83-95, but if you take out what the teams did to their opponents then Catholic's are 86-82 and Georgia's are 83-81

Re: 2017 Power Rankings


I know RPI is made up of opponent's record and opponent's opponent's record...so maybe Catholic's opponents also had higher strength of schedule than Georgia's opponents. Or at least that's how I remember it being calculated.

So maybe power ranking does something similar? No idea, but yea, based on playing both teams, I'd have UGA higher than Catholic.

Re: 2017 Power Rankings


The Power Rankings take into account the likelihood of cheating so that probably drops Georgia down in the power rankings a couple spots....

Now there is some smack talking... well done. Too bad you are hiding behind a brand new profile.

Well, assuming it actually is Nick Falvo, he isn't really hiding because he used his real last name and a lot of people know who he is.

Re: 2017 Power Rankings


I also wonder about these calculations though.

Re: 2017 Power Rankings


I don't know the actual formula, but "The Donald" explained it a bit in his Power Rankings thread last year and his model was able to predict games pretty accurately.

I think it's a Pythagorean Expected Winning %, but the formula adjusts the runs for/against based on how many runs your opponents typically score/give up.

Re: 2017 Power Rankings


You are correct. Power rankings are based on pythag. I linked to a primer of the underlying calculations in last year's power rankings thread.

The pythag formula rewards defense over offense. Even though Georgia has had the better offense Catholic's better defense puts them ahead in the rankings.
