Last year, The News Tribune began a partnership with Scott Odiorne, also known as the “Score Czar,” to publish computer-based high school football rankings.
Here is how he explains the process:
The computer rankings take the outcome of each game and endeavors to capsulize the data created by the final score by placing a numerical rating on how each team did compared to the caliber of their opponent.
The computer takes Points Allowed divided by Points For, multiplied by strength of schedule to determine each team rating.
Week 3 is the earliest computer rankings can be calculated.
