If you have any questions you want to ask, feel free to submit them to the site’s Formspring. I will answer anything related to the rankings or quiz bowl in general if I feel there’s something valuable to be said on the issue.
I have posted a FAQ that tries to explain how these rankings work a bit more.
The first update should be expected no earlier than mid- to late-October.
I will give a quick peak at the one tournament that’s happened so far – the University of Alabama’s William R King Invitational. Assuming conversions and PPB distributions are the same as last season and that the stats – which are currently playoffs only – are appropriately representive, this Hoover A (AL) performance would have been around 100th-110th in the country. St. Andrew’s (MS) would be in the neighborhood of 150th.
