Well, the college basketball regular season is over, and once again the AMSTS Computer Rankings are in the top five of the Massey Composite Ranking. This year we sit #2 overall, but #1 of the total ranking systems1 in correlation to consensus.
What does that mean? Well, we don’t win anything but a chance to inflate our egos. But if you believe that every computer system is out there attempting to best rank the teams from best to worst, then you’d have to agree that the consensus of all of those is likely close to The Objective Truth™. As such, us being at the left of the scoreboard indicates that we did a pretty good job… Again.
For all four years AMSTS has been featured on the matrix, we’ve finished in the Top 5, with a 2nd place finish in 2016, a 5th in 2017 and 2018, and this season we made it back to 2nd.
So when choosing a computer ranking to fall in love with, make sure you’re picking the best one. And we’re right here for you, baby. Always and forever.
While you’re at it, why not use the rankings for a little help on your bracket? They’re a click away.
