Ranking vs Rating…Yes there is a Difference

21 Apr

On WFB Talk, we got into the conversation of the use of the Massey Ratings in determining the standings of the Tier I/Tier II teams in the IWFL.  I had given what I had thought to be my interpretation on the overall ratings of the teams in the West and who were the top three teams based on those values (prior to all of week 2 input).

While having this discussion, there was much conversation going on in the chat room.  John, who does rankings, disagreed with the use of the Massey ratings with the Tier I/Tier II system.

Listen to Sunday’s 4/19 broadcast to find out why.

On December 14, 2008 we had John on our show and he explained the differences of Rankings vs Ratings (3 mins 26 seconds).

You can also visit John’s website at www.femaletacklefootball.com and see what his rankings are based on.

While you are there, be sure to sign up for his pick ’em contest.  It’s not too late to join.

John also has a forum to ask questions or email him at ftfwebsite@gmail.com.
