The Hybrid Rank is determined by using a team’s rank under both the Gonzalez and Champ systems, with 70% weight on the Gonzalez rank and 30% weight on the Champ rank. Once combined, that gives a team their ‘Hybrid Rating’ and the lower that number is the better position that team will rank overall. As an example, if a team ranks 10th in Gonzalez and 20th in Champ, their Hybrid Rating will be 13.000 (i.e. (10 x 70%) + (20 x 30%) = 13).
