  • Massey predictions for WFA Round 2

    Here are the predictions for tomorrow’s games per the Massey Rating system; I prefer this methodology to the pure points one for leagues with teams of significantly varying strength (and not just because of the predicted outcomes :) ).

  • Round 2!

    Bracket updated! Schedule is up and I’ll be updating it with details as I have ’em. (If you know something about any audio or video broadcasts, please let me know!)

  • Round 1 bracket (probably!)

    So here’s on top of their game: Ken Massey.
    Here’s who’s not: the WFA.
    Here’s who’s surprised: no one.

    Mr. Massey, bless his wonderful quantitatively-oriented soul, bothered to update the ratings for yesterday’s games overnight so I was able to put the round one bracket together on the plane.

    However, I can’t guarantee to you that every part of it is right, because the WFA has STILL not published ANY INFORMATION ABOUT THE POST-SEASON. Sorry for the overcaps there but OMG WHAT THE HELL. So what I’m using is the latest info that was sent to teams mid-season; I have been in contact with multiple coaches & owners throughout the league and none of them have received anything different, so I’m going with it.

    Side note: I can’t tell you anything about the “Regional Alliance Bowl Games”, because see above re: NO INFORMATION. The document just says “top seeds not in playoffs”, so you’d think that would be pretty straightforward — except that on the actual playoff bracket, there is an Alliance Bowl game listed there. What teams are those? How do they get there? Wouldn’t it be nice to know? Will the Regional Bowl games turn into a bracket where they play subsequent rounds and then the two top teams play on championship weekend? Or will those two teams be chosen first based on some criteria none of us know about, and then the Regional games will be the top seeds not counting those two teams? How many questions in a row can I ask? Don’t you think that’s a good question?

    OK, folks. I hope to post some analysis soon re: how yesterday’s games affected the bracket and what we might expect from the first round games, but I have slept for literally four hours since Friday morning so I don’t think now’s the time to do that. If you look at the bracket and there’s something you don’t understand (or that you think is incorrect), please let me know! That’s why I do this. Or, that’s why I do this after a nap.
