: : : 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.
To clarify. If a team were to play lower level teams and win a lot they could potentially move down in divisions? Where as a team who plays a tougher schedule versus D1 and D2 schools but lose a lot of those games could be moved up? Then obviously playoff success comes in to play. Thanks for any clarity.
