With four new teams expanding the League’s boundaries, Mario Romanelli introduces the idea of a 6v6 event happening every four years. Mario, Felix and Zigmas discuss. This uses extra audio from last week’s recording session, so intros and outros are the same as last week.
Standings are aimed to be released by the end of every Tuesday.
In the 2018 Season, we have 29 technical upsets in 118 ranked matches. This past Saturday, we had two technical upsets in nine ranked matches, one of which was an Overtime upset.
Since our League was founded in April of 2005, to present we’ve seen thousands of matches between schools. All 50 schools that have played in the NCDA have been campus recognized club sports and/or student organizations. Over the eight seasons of reliably recorded matches, starting with the 2011 Season on 2010-09-25, we’ve played 1368 ranked matches. 265 of those are considered technical upsets in the Gonzalez System (success rate of 80.63%). A technical upset is when a lower rated team defeats a higher rated team.
Roughly 220 box scores from Seasons 2005 to 2010 are recorded, but we know there are more unrecorded matches, roughly estimated to be about 300 matches played in the statistical dark ages from Seasons 2005 to 2010.
The Gonzalez System is a computer ranking model similar to Elo and is a rating exchange system based on research performed by World Rugby. It has been adapted by the NCDA to the demands of College Dodgeball, but can be tuned and customized endlessly to incorporate accurate data. It has been used to help determine seeds for the Nationals bracket since Nationals 2014, and was used exclusively for the Nationals 2017 bracket. Continue reading “Standings as of 2017-11-14”

We are well developed into the season, with 22 ranked matches coming out of this weekend and bringing us to a staggering 1359 ranked matches with 109 ranked matches in the 2018 Season so far. There are few organizations out there that can claim these kinds of records, and if any of you have leads on any please forward them over. Record keeping really sets us apart. Dodgeball play is worth keeping track of, and accuracy is important.
