Massey Ratings

Post by Indigo Kid on Thu Aug 06, 2009 8:20 am

I came upon this rating of Women's Soccer. Does anyone know how widely this is used and do poll rankings utilize this?

Hmmm... I didn't know Massey did ratings for women's soccer (and just about every other sport, so it appears), but he's most famous for his work with college football - they use his data in the BCS.

I remember he was in the news last year when his computers had Utah ahead of then #1 Alabama, and a lot of BCS conference honks were all ticked off about it. How "sweet" it must have been for him when Utah dominated Alabama in the Sugar Bowl. Ha ha, thank you, thank you... I'll be here all night.

Hey, PennState, Massey has been doing his ratings for a while and has a lot of credibility due to his ratings being used in the BCS selection process. In the RPI work I've done, his system and Albyn Jones' SoccerRatings are the two systems I've compared to the RPI. For a brief description of his system and how his ratings compare to SoccerRatings and the RPI in terms of their actual correlations with game results, check out the following link: http://sites.google.com/site/rpifordivisioniwomenssoccer/rpi-compared-to-other-systems

Thanks UP SoccerFanatic, I knew I could count on you for a reply with your analytical skills on display in many posts. I expected you would know of Massey. I will look at the link you provided.
