Pre-Nationals Standings

Standings are aimed to be released by the end of every Tuesday. 

In the 2019 Season, we have 40 technical upsets in 216 ranked matches (81.48% success rate) across 31 events. Additionally, there have been four JV matches entered into the Records.

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 and 2018 bracket.

For this standings post, I decided to show the movement from the start of the year to where we are now.

We saw the induction of two brand new teams in the University of Cincinnati and Western Michigan University thanks in part to our dedicated alumni. As a result, we had 31 active teams participate in an NCDA sanctioned event this year.

Overall, Miami and Towson were the clear front runners in terms of points gained during the season thanks in part to spectacular seasons. UNG had the largest upward swing in overall standings position, going from 30th overall to 14th in one season. GVSU has continued their dominance and is inching closer and closer to the all-time record for Gonzalez rating (59.240) which was achieved by GVSU during the 2016-17 National Championship.

Ratings, sorted.
