Introduction

Here is my rough attempt at a CF computer rating. It is a combination of a score-based rating and a more politically correct one like the six that are part of the BCS.

To estimate the point spread between two teams, subtract their numbers in the Points ("Pts") column. Don't forget home field advantage, which is usually around 2.5 to 3 points. It fluctuates a little, but I don't bother publishing the actual number: in 2011, at the end of week 6 it was 2.7.

Last season's games have a strong but diminishing influence for the first few weeks. More recent games are always weighted heavier. This is a work in progress, and I reserve the right to change the algorithm at any time, without telling you (errors, tweaks, whatever).

The ratings are one of many included on Dr. Kenneth Massey's comparison page for college football.

Enjoy! Email me if you have a question.

The components

The rating is a blend of two different and unique formulas.

Rating 1: An "almost" "pure points" system. Only margins of victory are included, but a diminishing returns rule is applied when scores are above 40 points. Over 40, the excess is halved, i.e., 42 becomes 41, 50 is 45, 70 is 55, etc. This is done without regard to margin of victory. I know I could have (and should have) been a bit more elegant, but it works.

The rating based only on points is available from the "Points" column at left. You can use it plus the known home field advantage to predict the outcome of any game if it were to be played today.

Rating 2: A system that considers only winning and losing, with games further weighted based on how recently they were played. The weight is simple: it is the number of days since the game was played, divided by 400. So a game played four months ago is weighted only 0.7 compared to "today's" games (weight 1.00), for games eight months ago the weight is about 0.4, and obviously for games one year ago the weight becomes even smaller, less than 0.1. For 2013, I've changed this weight to use a max of 400 days (not 365, which is more intuitive) to make sure that all of last year's games are retained in the "preseason" ratings. This rating should correlate highly with all the other BCS-style ratings, since there is no margin of victory.

For each rating, I then normalize the entire list (so that the mean is zero and the standard deviation is one), and simply add the two normalized ratings together to get the final value, shown in the "Rating" column. In other words, Rating = normalized_rating1 + normalized_rating2. That's it. That's why the ratings are bounded in roughly a range of +5 to -5...it will be rare to have a team with either rating more than about 2.5 SD's beyond the mean, let alone both of them.

Some math details

Finding each set of ratings requires solving an overdetermined matrix problem (thousands of games, for only hundreds of teams), which is popularly done either via SVD or with an iterative technique. SVD for college basketball requires a few gigabytes of RAM, which I didn't have at home when I started this project, so I went with the iterative methods. They are often slower, but will produce the same result. Right now I use a Matlab routine called LSMR, written by David Fong and Michael Saunders of Stanford University. Prior to using their algorithm, I used ugly, clunky, slow programs that I wrote myself; they resembled the predictor-corrector methods from your numerical analysis courses.

I normalize both results because there is essentially no other way to compare or combine the two ratings. Neither rating is given more preference than the other. There's probably a better way to get the end result than just adding the two normalized ratings together, but again, it seems to work. I'm always learning, always willing to hear new ideas, and always trying to improve the results.

I have a Ph.D. in Atmospheric Science from the University of Alabama in Huntsville. That's the same place where Dr. Wes Colley now works (he produces one of the six BCS rankings), but I only met him once. I am a faculty member at Indiana University, with research in the areas of thunderstorms and numerical weather prediction (forecasting using computers).
