W/L Percentage (WLP): Win over Total Matches Played. [W / Total Matches]
NHL System: (unofficial: The Champ System) Overtime losses are rewarded. [W=2, L=0, OTL=1]. Tie breakers: Better WLP, total matches played, date of league entry (which matches the team ID in numerical order).
The Lieblich System: Strength of schedule based on NCAA Basketball RPI. Formula: [(Team's WLP * .25) + (OWLP * .5) + (OOWLP *.25)]
The Perrone System: Quality win component similar to the BCS. Basic formula: [(Wins+OT-Ls)-(Losses)] / Total Games Played
Question: Why is it the Ratings Gap and GRI multiplied by .1?
Answer from Matt Gonzalez: It's been a while since I've looked at it, but let me see if I can remember what I did exactly, as I can't find my calculations at the moment. The formula listed should be the one I used, but if there is a miscalculation, then it would be because I just typed it up incorrectly with the GRI in the same set of parentheses as the ratings gap. If you are asking why I used a factor of .1 specifically, it's because I wanted to match this graph that the IRB uses: www.irb.com/mm/Photo/Static/0/ranking_wales-win_4495.gif The formula represents the upper and lower lines from the graph, with the GRI shifting the y-intercept up for a win and down for a loss. Hopefully that explains it, I know it's pretty confusing. It took me a bit to decipher their explanation (http://www.irb.com/rankings/explain/index.html/#eg).

Zigmister: i could spend a little bit of time fiddling with the CSS to make a nice header, but I don't think I should spend that just yet. So i just put a simple logo in the header

Zigmister: So there's a couple of cool things we can do with the forum now, if I install some plugins. Randomly came across a in-post tournament bracket plugin that might be useful for others. Check out the giant list: www.proboards.com/library/plugins/1492531

WKU-Perrone-76: Schools who have not paid their league due yet, there is still a chance to pay. Your dues now have a $25 penalty fee associated with them, so your minimum is now $125. You have two weeks from today, January 31st, to get those checks postmarked and sent.
