Massey Ratings - 2024 Preseason


Recommended Posts

🖥️ 🏈 | The Professor has tagged five defending State champs as preseason #1's. Beechwood opens up at the top of 2A with a razor thin margin over Mayfield (0.01). 

✔️ All speculative at this point of course, but a fun starting point nonetheless. Just a little taste to sustain us through the coming dog days of summer. 3 ... 2 ... 1 ... 😃

Well this is definitely going to drum up some conversation. I’m looking forward to seeing people’s opinions on this. I feel like in the past these have been fairly good ballpark ratings but I might be remembering that wrong.

O Cath at 4, Paducah at 4, and Johnson Central UR probably the biggest that stand out to me. 

🦅 JC unranked is my mistake. They're #7 in 4A and 35th statewide. Sorry Golden Eagles.

1. Boyle County

I would move Paducah Tilghman to #2 and Taylor County out of top 10. Corbin has a lot of shoes to fill, but still belongs in the 3-6 group. Ashland could move up and Johnson Central still is a question mark. After the top 7 is any ones guess.

Is there a key someplace for all the columns? Most are easy to figure out or are self explanatory but some I’m clueless about. 

🏈 Yes sir. I cropped it from the image above. Click on "Key" for a drop down list. 

Column headers, in white, are also sortable - schools alphabetically, strength of schedule, etc. 

It's worth navigating for a few minutes to click on a few features. Overall, Massey is much more user friendly than CalPreps. Link ~

✓ Below is a link to the Massey home page. "High School Football" opens up Rankings for all 50 states and DC. One can find a score prediction for all schools in the database by clicking on "Matchup" as shown in the image below.

🦉 Imo, computer ranking accuracy improves as more data becomes available as the season progresses. In my experience, early on, all of them are front loaded, with a "bias" from the previous season. There's no tracking of current transfers, coaching changes, and whatnot. 

😃 Have fun with it y'all. Let's have a great year. Best of luck and safe travels! 🍀

I don't see a reason for Cooper to be the fifth ranked team in 5A, no matter who's rankings it is.

🟣 BG in the house! 🤷 

📖 The Jags host #2 Highlands in Week 6 I think. Look forward to revisiting the Ratings as the season progresses.

Great use of meme there, RO! Fantastic series.

I'd love to know what all Massey uses in putting this preseason list together.

Scott Co above Cooper is a surprise to me. With Cooper at 4 I think that’s much closer. You would think 1-4 would be fairly close and could be debated a few different ways.

That game is at Highlands on 9-27.

Considering Sayre embarrassed Bethlehem last year I am surprised by that ranking.

Station in 6A has loaded up I think they will finish much higher. I could be wrong.
