Standings are aimed to be released by the end of every Tuesday.
In the 2018 Season, we have 52 technical upsets in 211 ranked matches (75.36% success rate) across 33 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 80.29% based on 288 technical upsets in 1461 ranked matches played since 2010-09-25.
This weekend had two technical upsets over eight ranked matches.

38.269 def 40.000+1, exchanging 1.273
SIUE def BSU 6-3
39.305 def 38.496+1, exchanging 1.019
Net Rating Changes
Ball State enters into the System with a 37.394, compared to last week’s induction matches for UCF. UCF entered the League with a 36.603 after four matches. Both these teams have only played four matches so far, so both ratings are considered provisional until they reach 6 total games played.
