Strength of schedule numbers

The NCAA has, thankfully, moved away from its flawed Quality of Wins Index to incorporate more relevant numbers into its strength of schedule calculation.

The only variation the NCAA made to this formula over the years it was in place was to change the name, rather than make the formula work better. Now at least we have a wholesale change.

SOS will now be determined using a schools’ opponents’ winning percentage and their opponents’ opponents’ winning percentage. That is, not only will it measure a team’s opponents record, but the teams that opponent played in order to get to that record.

There are too many numbers to post here. They have their own page. Click here to read, but feel free to comment.
