The Maher Rankings are a purely statistical, objective sports ranking algorithm. The Maher Rankings have been calculating rankings for high school soccer in Kentucky since 2011, and in Ohio since 2013. The rankings have been adopted by the Kentucky High School Girls Soccer Coaches Association and have been cited regularly by the Louisville Courier Journal. In 2015, we took our first foray into basketball.
The system is based on the relative strengths of the opposing teams in each match. The chance of winning a game against a certain opponent depends on the strength of your team and the strength of your opponent. The system compares these chances with the actual result, and uses the difference to adjust each teamís ranking heading into the next game.
