It seems that Bantam Midlothian 2, Minor Cleburne 2, and Major Whitney aren't excited about yesterday's wins. Or losses. Maybe Bantam Midlothian 2, Minor Cleburne 1, and Major Granbury 2 weren't excited about their upsets. Or did they? We can only wonder. In any case, I'm going to post the ratings as they are without those single missing games in each class. I will update them later when the scores crawl in.

BVFA Standings & Guru Ray’s Rankings Week Four are Online



BVFA Standings

The Standings determine each team’s position in BVFA Playoffs and they are based on wins, losses and ties. The Standing are all that are taken into consideration. Ignore the first column for now. It only counts after the Week Nine scores come in.

Guru Ray’s Ratings

Guru Ray’s Ratings are for information and entertainment. They have nothing to do with playoffs! For years Ray provided ratings of NCAA games and they have been very accurate. Many years ago he agreed to do it for us to give us something that other leagues do not have and make things a little more entertaining.

Below are the top three teams in each division:

Major Division
1. Cleburne 2
2. Burleson 1
3. Whitney

Minor Division
1. Midlothian 1
2. Waxahachie 1
3. Crowley

Bantam Division
1. Granbury 2
2. Burleson
3. Cleburne

The Guru added a new section this week – “Games I Would Most Watch Next Week.”

1. Major Burleson 2 vs Cleburne 2
2. Minor Burleson 1 vs Midlothian 3
3. Bantam Waxahachie vs Midlothian 2
4. Major Waxahachie 2 vs Crowley
5. Minor Burleson 2 vs Cleburne 2

If you want to ask the Guru questions post them on the BVFA Blog and he will answer them. See all of the Guru’s Ratings at –

Note on Ratings

During the first three weeks I've accelerated the ratings by going through all the games played up to that point each week. That's no longer necessary as the teams are well spread out. From this point onward they will only be changed according to the guidelines set forth in the post about the rating change. You can now see if I make any mistakes.

Note on Ratings

Still no clear picture of what teams are better. Next week it will be a lot clearer but on week five we should have a much better idea. It has always puzzled me as to why the teams that won don't always get their scores in very quickly. When I played sports and we won I made a point to tell people how we did. Where's that enthusiasm? I'm no longer going to hold up the teams that get their scores in because a few teams have trouble. The teams that haven't turned them in will be down at the bottom. With this system, if you don't turn in your scores, you only get to see the other teams move up. How about some scores, folks?

Notes on Ratings

There isn't much to see yet. All the teams that won have a 110, all the teams that lost have a 100, and all the teams that tied have a 105. That's not the normal way to treat a tie but on the first week there has to be a method to place tying teams above those who haven't won and below those who haven't lost. After the first week this won't be used. Next week each team will use their current ratings as their starting rating (instead of 100 if they are higher) and the first two games will be recalculated. That will tell a lot more about how good the teams are than this week's ratings. This method only tells a team's estimated strength by whom they beat and whom they lose to, not by the points they rack up.

Ratings Change

This season I am going to use a rating system that is simple to understand and it's fun. It also has won awards competing against very complicated computer rating systems on Todd Beck's site for those who are familiar with that. For this site I will call them the King of the Hill Ratings. They work like this:

Each team begins with a rating of 100.
If your team beats the other team you pick up 10% of their rating.
If your team is upset by a team with a lower rating your rating drops by one third of the difference between the ratings of the two teams.
If your team loses and was not supposed to win nothing happens.
If there is a tie the higher rated team loses one third of the difference and the lesser rated team gains one third of the difference.

On the second and third weeks I will use the current ratings as the starting rating and run through all the games played to accelerate the early order of the teams. That will not be necessary from the fourth week forward.

In this system you earn your points (hopefully) and the best teams rise to the top. It is not as accurate as the system I use in the other football categories but it has proved itself, is easy to understand, and is fun. Have a good time.
