Standings as of 2016-10-03

Towson records team record. Towson adds 2.172 to their rating with their three wins at VCU this weekend. They climb to 46.620 and can claim an all time high rating for the team. They are now 6-0 over their two events this season, with the best record in college dodgeball this season, and can claim the #4 spot in the Gonzalez Standings.

The Lower Septenary Teams. There is a competitive and better half of the league that is worth paying attention to. Pitt enters the League standings with a 36.057 rating and #23 placement, and UMD drops to #18 after losing 0.956 after going 0-3 this weekend. This places the two teams into a very competitive bracket that ranges from #18-24. Only 3.873 separates the lowest and highest ratings here, or some 4 quality wins. As long as these teams aren’t playing a team greater than #9, I’d expect to see these ratings shuffle over the season. Very easy to bust out. Akron has already done so, climbing into #13 from #17 last week. 

The Michigan top three is the National top three. The top three is still solidly held with the #4 still 1.504 back on MSU. At this level, it’s equivalent to being 2-4 quality wins back. Even further is the apparent disparity between the top three ratings. MSU is 2.195 back from Central. And Central is an even greater 4.659 back from GVSU. The total

GVSU’s rating is not the highest it’s ever been, which was 58.853 following the 2016 Championship match. However, GVSU’s home rating going into this Saturday looks to be a difficult task to overtake by even the #2 rating . At this point in the season, a visiting CMU would have to get a near 95th percentile upset win to overtake GVSU at home.

Some Laziness. In later additions, I’d like to include the W% column. But for now, that would involve a little bit of work. It should return after the New Year. Help yourself to the Season sheet.

Interesting note. VCU’s actual rating is 39.9998578281404 and through the magic of rounding numbers, it looks like VCU is a brand new team at 40.000, the same value given to entering teams like Pitt this weekend.
