Maxwell Week 2 Summary: Big weekend looms; chances of state championship preview

The Maxwell Ratings will rank the Georgia High School Association’s 418 teams throughout the 2017 season. The ratings are based entirely on historical performance and on field results and do not consider personnel changes on the roster or coaching staffs.

Interesting results:
– The ratings are fairly stable so far, but this weekend feature three of the season’s top 15 matchups so there is a potential for some shake up:
— Grayson faces McEachern in their only in-state contest until region play begins in October. Unfortunately the ratings don’t put much weight on their outside contests since the scope of the ratings is only Georgia teams, however this contest should be a good gauge as to close McEachern (and Mill Creek) are to Grayson this season.
— Colquitt, the second highest rated team in Class AAAAAAA, faces Tucker, the top rated team in Class AAAAAA. The Packers are a two-touchdown favorite in the ratings and are looking to avenge a 21-20 upset from last season.
— Lowndes, probably the only challenger to Colquitt County for Region 1-AAAAAAA, faces Parkview, probably the only challenger to Norcross in 7-AAAAAAA. Norcross lost to Colquitt County 20-17 to open the season.
– Counting this weekend’s Grayson-McEachern pairing, there are 15 games that have a 1% chance or greater of being a preview of the eventual state championship game:

Maxwell GHSA Football Ratings

As this season’s games are played, the Maxwell Ratings will be based on a modified logistic regression of the current football season’s results in combination with each team’s historical performance. More recent games and games against similarly rated opponents carry more weight and the weight of each team’s historical performance diminishes as the team’s season progresses.

The current total weight of all team’s historical performance is 53.91%.

For the current season, the ratings accurately account for the winner of 289 of 302 total games including 0 tie(s) (95.70%) and accurately reflect approximately 68.3% of all game margins within 13.61 points.

The ratings are scaled so that 100.00 is the rating required to win 91.5% of all games in an infinite round robin tournament against all teams in the highest classification. The schedule strength is the rating required to win 50% of all games in an infinite round robin tournament against a particular team’s opponents.

Regions

Each region is shown with its “Competitive Rating”, which is the Competitive Rating is the rating required for a new team to that region to have a chance of going undefeated in a round robin schedule among region teams equal to the chance of being selected region champion if picked at random. For example, there are four teams in 1-AAAAAAA, so the chance of a new team being region champion if picked at random is 1 / (4 + 1) = 20%. Therefore the Competitive Rating is the rating required to go undefeated in a round robin tournament among region teams 20% of the time. This rating favors regions with larger numbers of highly rated teams. The “Average Rating” is the rating required to win 50% of all games against the region’s teams in an infinite round robin competition.
