Standings are aimed to be released by the end of every Tuesday.
In the 2018 Season, we have 48 technical upsets in 198 ranked matches (75.76% success rate) across 30 events.
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.
Technical Upset Spotlight
A technical upset in the Gonzalez System is when a lower rated team defeats a higher rated team. The overall success rate of the system is currently 80.39% based on 284 technical upsets in 1448 ranked matches played since 2010-09-25.
