Fall 2014 GPQB Morlan Rankings

Today we are posting a list of area teams based on the system developed by longtime quiz bowl advocate Fred Morlan for ranking teams on adjusted points per bonus. If you are not familiar with Fred and his work, please go check out his site, his analysis is very thorough. An explanation of what the numbers mean can be found there also. His methodology was applied to all teams from our area that have played a Saturday invitational so far. The teams marked “A” are the best statistical performance at a given event, and do not always correlate with the label that team played with in competition.

THIS IS NOT AN OFFICIAL GPQB TEAM RANKING. This is purely a post of statistical analysis. Our official mid-season ranking will be posted after the Quaker Bowl at the University of Pennsylvania next month, and will include a more inclusive ranking that combines statistics, head to head records, individual performances, and expert opinions. Keep your eyes peeled for that post!
