: : : I saw the formula but I'm confused on how it's weighted. Next year what will make you move up or down divisions? What has to be the win % and how far will you have to advance in the playoffs to move up. And what will it take to move down?? What if your 24-3 but lose in the 2nd round?? Were will you go

: : It is a 2 year ranking. Each team is given points for every game. Points are weighted based on your level of opponent. The teams in 1AA and 1A have the highest power rating and therefore your team gets maximum points for a win and a loss. Teams who play Division 1 and 2 teams will get more points even if they lose than teams playing Division 5 and 6 teams. You also get bonus points for each round of playoffs. This year they put equal weight to each of the last 2 years (50-50). Every year they will redo the divisions based on the preceding 2 years. So, your team will be rated on those season and 15-16. Obviously 15-16 is already done. 16-17 rankings will begin as soon as CIF champions are crowned. CIF may have already started ratings for all I know but not sure. It is easy to do under their current system, but tweaks may need to be made. There are still some teams in divisions they clearly should not be on, but since it is based on the teams previous 2 years, some teams suffer success placement despite heavy graduation loss and some teams greatly benefit from being bad for 3 years and now having a better team.

: The last two years were weighted 33% - 67% according to the CIF website.

They may have weighted it per your suggestion, but if that was the case then some teams are definitely not where they should not quite sure what formula they used for basketball because each sport did it the way they wanted to.....

If you want to start finding out where your school will be, you have to find out the division of each of your opponents and then find out there win-loss % ... that's why we have to wait until the year is over and the % affects how many points your team receives for a victory or loss, but at this point you can make a pretty educated guess...
