(CORRECTED COPY) GVSU Takes Top Spot In Initial Team Performance Average (TPA©) Football Rankings!

September 24, 2018 (Edited for Accuracy)

 

Ypsilanti, MI – (09/18/2018) The inaugural TPA© football rankings for Michigan colleges and universities finds some familiar powerhouse names from the Division 2 and 3 ranks interspersed with perhaps unexpected Division 1 schools filling up the lower ranks.


The TPA© is a simple statistical formula that is based solely upon performance on the field, not name recognition, tradition or voter/fan allegiances.


To be eligible to be included in this week’s rankings, the school has to have played at least 3 games. MSU is therefore absent since it has played only 2 games as of this date.


  

GVSU's Lakers took the #1 spot with a TPA© of 15 points, next came Hillsdale College with 14.5 points, Western Michigan Univ. with 12 points. Kalamazoo College and Hope College tied for #3 with a TPA© of 11 points. Concordia Univ. rounds out the Top 5 with a TPA © of 10.5 points.


  

‘Penalties Received’, the only negative scoring factor in the TPA© formula, is based in (- ½) point increments and accounts for the (.5) values in the scoring totals.


The complete rankings follow:

1. Grand Valley State Univ. - 15 points

2. Hillsdale College – 14.5 points

3. Western Mich. Univ. – 12 points

4. Kalamazoo College/Hope College – 11 points

5. Concordia Univ. – 10.5 points

6. Adrian College/Ferris State Univ. – 10 points

7. Siena Heights Univ. – 9.5 points

8. Davenport Univ. – 9 points

9. Saginaw Valley St. Univ. – 8.5 points

10. Albion College – 8 points

11. Olivet College – 7.5 points

12. Univ. of Mich. – 6.5 points

13. Lawrence Tech. Univ. – 5.5 points

14. Alma College – 4 points

15. Central Mich. Univ. – 3 points

16. Mich. Tech. Univ. – 2 points

17. Northwood Univ. – 2 points

18. Wayne St. Univ. – 1 point

19. Finlandia Univ. – 0 points

20. Northern Mich. Univ. – (-2.5) points

21. Eastern Mich. Univ. – (-2.5) points


Going forward, each week’s results will be averaged out with the previous week’s point total to arrive at a current TPA©. 


The rankings will be announced each Tuesday during the season.

Who Is The "Best Performing" Football Team In The State?

September 14, 2018


Ypsilanti, MI --  

Dixon Media Group, the Washtenaw county based media service has announced the criteria that it will utilize to provide the mathematical scoring system for it’s “Best Performing Football Team” weekly rankings. 


The rankings will be featured on DMG™ ‘s MISPORTSTV.COM website and will be supported by feature pieces on the soon (November 2018) to be released accompanying TV Channel, MISPORTS-TV™.


The statistical formula can be applied to any and all football teams whether it is pee-wee league team or a professional league team…as long as statistics are officially kept and published.


The formula itself is simple, the team is awarded points as follows:

· Win the game…………………………………………………. +4 points

· 150+ Net Yards Rushing………………………………….. +2 points

· 225+ Net Yards Passing…………………………………… +2 points

· No Turnovers………………………………………………….  +2 points  

· Opponent <150 Net Yards Rushing………………..  +2 points

· Opponent <225 Net Yards Passing…………………. +2 points

· BONUS – Road Victory……………………………………. +3 points

· BONUS – Takeaway(s)……………………………………. +1 point(s)

· DEDUCTIONS – Penalties……………………………….. - (.5) point(s) PER Penalty


The Point Total from this game are added to previous game point totals, then divided by the number of games played by the team so far in the season, that figure gives the Team Performance Average (TPA).


The TPA can then be used to quantify which team is the better performing team, whether it is in the same division, conference, state or weight class. It can even be used to quantify teams that are professional or amateur. 


Teams will then be ranked “Highest to Lowest” in the state rankings published on the website and the TV Channel’s weekly productions.
