The model depends on as much information as possible and is meant to bring objectivity to the table, not 100% accuracy. I do this so people have more information and can make informed expressions about their favorite teams. I read a lot of the comments made on other sites and there are several that make arguments on one piece of information neglecting to mention other important facts that may offset some of their argument. I would also like to mention that every model or system or person making an educated guess as to the ordering of teams has flaws. I try to be as up front about mine as I can.
Finally, I will respond to Joe's expression regarding the girls' C bracket. Joe, you say you’re ok with FP being a 5, but Galway can’t be a 6 because they play a weak D twice. FP plays in the same division as Galway and plays the same weak D twice. The fact is that every team that has a realistic chance at winning sectionals plays bad teams. The four teams I have ranked ahead of FP all play 2 games against teams that are winless combining for a 0-50 mark. Every ranked team after FP also plays at least one game against a winless team and most of those play two as well.
Joe, I appreciate you reading and your comment. The best way to stay informed about this or any topic is to debate it with other people who have the interest. I also want to say that set up the prediction model for the boys' and it actually looks more like my personal opinions that the forecast model does. I'll be revealing those soon.
