February 26, 2020 Rankings

After a couple of tournaments which helped us update our rankings (letting us among other things add for the first time full Blair A and GDS A to the rankings!), we are back with another release of rankings. There is definitely a slight shakeup at the top, with a lot of major changes coming from last weekend’s burst of tournaments.

We do our best to keep track of all the tournaments going on throughout the country, but sometimes we lack access to a couple. If you have any stats we have not included in our most recent set of rankings, feel free to send them our way! Thanks as always to our Patreon subscribers:

9 thoughts on “February 26, 2020 Rankings

  1. I have been, and continue to be, amused by the St. Mark’s “A” vs. Cistercian “A” rankings on this site. There seems to be some form of interpretive parallax which makes it possible to view the reality and consistency of one team’s record over another’s. Of course, I’ll be chided (I have been before) by replies that say something to the effect that “this is NOT what we are measuring”. OK, fine! — but reality is a tough thing to fudge.


    1. Like everyone has been saying, this site only ranks based on statistics. If cistercian posts bad statistics and still wins then so be it, you get the trophies and St. Marks gets the higher rank. But, it is pretty clear despite cistercian’s wins that St. Marks is the better team, which is why they are consistently ranked higher. Your argument may have had some standing at the last two tournaments, where St. Marks had yet to prove that they could beat cistercian (though the stats clearly indicated they could) but at the most recent tournament St. Marks proved why they are clearly the better team. As they have all season, they put up better powers per game and better points per bonus than cistercian did. This time, however, they also beat cistercian twice (despite some of your rather unorthodox protest antics), and their only loss to cistercian came on a trash question at the end. By your logic, TAG Magnet would be the top team in Dallas after beating St. Marks, Greenhill, and Cistercian, but no one thinks that because St. Marks averaged much higher numbers.


      1. It seems that “ketone” (whoever that is) has not only an axe to grind vis a vis St. Mark’s loss to Cistercian “A” but, indeed, some personal knowledge of my actions as the coach for the the Cistercian teams at that tournament; I have no regrets. I know the rules and use them appropriately, period. Regarding ‘unorthodox protest antics’ I would simply refer everyone to the NAQT rules as written; unorthodox is not unethical. And, I do happen to know something about those rules since I’ve become familiar with them ever since the very first nationals in 1999 in Norman, OK – we were there. Oh, BTW, since I helped St. Mark’s get started as a QB school/team back in the dark ages, I think I have some knowledge of how they have played over the years — and that’s perhaps one reason why they had some trouble making it to the finals of that tournament recently. Their “A” team is a fine group of players — clearly — and I respect them, but they haven’t yet figured out how to consistently beat Cisterican “A”. Perhaps “ketone” can give them some suggestions, if, indeed, he’s not a member of the team.


      2. Nice try Father Greg, but I don’t go to St. Mark’s. Sorry if I hurt your feelings by calling your protest unorthodox, but I never called it unethical or rule-violating. It was just an act of desperation for your team to upset St. Mark’s that game. Your time/experience in quiz bowl does not change that. Your “response” also wasn’t a response to my post and didn’t give an evidence-based reason why Cistercian is better than St. Mark’s. Your only justification was that Cistercian has won more, but your stats are worse and at the most recent tournament St. Mark’s won the matchup 2/3 times.


    2. You seem to have a fair point. Can you elaborate on what you think is a better measurement to judge teams by, or do you think there just shouldn’t be any rankings at all?


      1. We must admit that there is no perfect way to rank teams that will result in universal satisfaction. However, I am not quite sure if there is a better alternative. Feel welcome to share one if you have something in mind.


      2. (the other comment posted by this account on this thread was intended to be a reply to the original comment, that of FATHER GREGORY SCHWEERS, 0. CIST rather than Riley Reid)


    3. My man you really need to log off. I get that this kind of posting is part of your brand (which is maybe something you should reconsider) but you’re arguing with high schoolers in a thread filled with porn star pseudonyms about some pretty arbitrary rankings. You’re above this.
