For all your fancy-pants statistical needs.

My very own ratings!

I have finally done something I've been wanting to do for a long time: make my own ratings system! I have found a source of easily-updated data, and a way to VERY quickly update my ratings!

Here's how it goes, as of games through 11/21.

To do list: adjust for tempo*, adjust for recency.

Adjusting for recency will have to be well-thought out...perhaps finding what weights most accurately predict more recent games/etc.

Tempo -- I'm not sure I'll be able to do this. To add this to my data set will most certainly be a pain, and I'm not quite sure that efficiency margin is a better measure of team quality than point margin -- or vice versa (as I have discussed previously -- relating to NCAA ball).
