dntn31 Posted August 25, 2018 Report Share Posted August 25, 2018 In a recent podcast Jeff Fisher was talking about Mater Dei's forfeit and its impact on the HSFBA rankings algorithm (around the 10 min mark). What I found interesting was his statement that this (a forfeit loss) had never happened to a team in regards to their ranking algorithm. What's interesting about this is that it suggests that their algorithm is not explicitly including ALL teams the way that CalPreps does since at least some team in the country is forfeiting games every year. I'm not saying this is necessarily a good or a bad thing, or that one approach is necessarily better than the other, it's just interesting. It also raises the question of how they are choosing to include teams in their algorithm and how they are treating the interconnected chain of teams that fall outside the scope of their algorithm (e.g., at what point do they make that cutoff and what heuristics, if any, are they using in place of those explicit data sets?). 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
