  1. If the passing defense is anything like last week's, Memorial's passing game will cause fits for Lawrenceburg. Ultimately the Dude thinks match-up problems will be the reason for it. And #43 will be a problem for Memorial. That dude is a man among boys. Should be a good game. Best of luck to Memorial. #SIACFB #812FB

    No worries, man. The Dude understood you. The Dude just saw a golden opp to post one of the most epic lines from the greatest movie ever, made.

    Hey, hey, hey, careful man, there's a beverage here! Yeah the Dude abides. From the website: Power Ranking Formula: 1. Power 2. Win-Loss 3. Strength of Schedule 4. Head-to-Head The Dude isn't sure what 'Power' even means.

  6. Yeah, in the Dude's opinion, Calpreps at this point is probably a little more accurate. Comparing the two system what's interesting is the top 2 or 3 spots tend to be close, except in 2A. Six of one, half dozen of the other.
  7. Yeah, it looks like Chatard's schedule is the driving force for Cathedral's SOS. The Dude was just curious to know how only 1 school would impact that type of ranking. It appears to be a major flaw with the system itself. The Dude abides. Especially when a ping-pong ultimately determines the essential path to Thanksgiving weekend. The Dude is just trying to understand the logic/math/science/equation behind it. If that makes any sense. In the Dude's opinion, Cathedral's schedule points out the inconsistency of the equation. Folks tend to believe that this week - where all schools tend to be tied together within the equation - is what makes the Sagarin system pretty efficient. But a data point that only has one mean of measure halfway through the data load is far from efficient. Not to mention only a 1/3 of the data load will determine the outcome of that data point. Does that make any since? Or is the Dude over thinking this and not fully understanding the explanation Sagarin provides on his website?
  8. From the Sagarin website: The SCHEDULE ratings represent what the rating would have to be for a hypothetical team to have a mathematical expectation of winning precisely 50% of their games against the schedule played by the team in question in the games that it has played so far. The schedule difficulty of each given game takes into account the rating of the opponent and the location of the game. This is the same concept that is used in computing the WIN50% conference ratings. In HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL the W-L records include ALL games, but ONLY games between the 327 TEAMS RATED here are used for RATING and SCHEDULE STRENGTH computations.

Cathedral's only victory is to Chatard by 3 touchdowns, an IHSAA opponent. The remaining 4 games on the schedule will account for 50% of the schools out-of-state. According to Sagarin, Chatard with a 2-3 record apparently has the 3rd strongest schedule, to where one of their wins is to an out-of-state opponent and like Cathedral has 50% of the remaining schedule against out-of-state opponents. It looks like Chatard is carrying a lot of weight for the Sagarin system. And it's a mystery for the Dude, especially with out-of-state opponents and Cathedral on the schedule. 5-0 Roncalli sits at 7 overall with a 100% IHSAA schedule. They beat Chatard by two touchdowns. But the SOS is 19. Can someone on here explain to the Dude why Cathedral and Chatard is carrying so much SOS weight with out-of-state opponents on the schedule? Because according the to description above, out-of-state opponents don't account for the ratings. Also, how does Cathedral get such a high ranking with only one school to tie into the ratings system? It seems like there's a "base rating" for a school like Cathedral.

    Yeah the Dude put out-of-state opponents (two shut outs and a blow out) into account regarding the Evansville schools and any one of the top 7 could easily win against each other on any given Friday night. Also, both Columbus schools really haven't faced the same caliber as the Evansville schools, yet. East Central's SOS is lights out at this point and when it's all said and done they might be playing for the hardware Thanksgiving weekend. Floyd Central will have a chance to move up. The Dude wasn't really sure on where to place them because of the Madison game/score. Memorial has caught the Dude's eye and they've got a shot to take down #1 this weekend.
