Bobcat College Basketball Rankings

The Bobcat College Basketball Rankings are based on games through 12/25/05 between Div-I teams only. Games between Div-I and lower division teams are not considered.

There is no pre-season ranking factor involved. The rankings are especially volatile early in the season.

This ranking is meant to analyse seasonal performance, not to predict future results or to determine which of any two teams is the better at the time of calculation.

Thanks to Ken Pomeroy for compiling the scores: http://kenpom.com/cbbgames.txt Ranking systems can be compared at: http://kenpom.com/rate.php

85.9% Retrodiction Rate: the success rate of the current ranking to correctly call all [1456] games that HAVE BEEN played between Div-IA teams this season.

77.6% Prediction Rate: the success rate of last week's ranking to correctly call all [214] games TO BE played between that ranking and this current ranking.

W-L: Win-Loss (for Confs, per-team-avg). Mrg: Avg win/(loss) Score Margin. SOS: Strength of Schedule Rank. @RPI: approximates the ranking system used by the NCAA to fill and seed it's championship tournament.

NOTE: Two Div-1 Teams are not listed. Neither Baylor nor Alabama A&M has yet to play a Div-1 opponent.
