Pushed several bug fixes live last night along with the New Team Commit List and Team Rankings:
#1. Team Commit List (added 247Sports and 247Composite Comparative rating and ranking data -- there's nothing like this)
#2. Team Ranking Product (with both 247Sports Team Ranking and 247Composite Team Ranking)

Did the cut-off for four-stars on the 247Composite go up?

Looks great. Love this fix...
No. Its the same
Hmm. Cause I keep a spreadsheet like a total nerd, and Cameron Toney was a four-star on the 247Composite. His rating (0.8753) is the same, but now he's a three-star instead of a four.
I also remember AU having 7 fours and 7 threes instead of 6 and 8.
Thought the same but didn't put it down so I didn't question it...
Noticed that as well
Really like the changes!

Let's keep this thread on topic....
Just a suggestion, however, it would be much appreciated if the tech team did these things later on west coast time. Having the USC site down when subscribers are waiting on practice reports is a huge faux pas. Start these fixes at 1:00AM PST...not 10:00PM PST.
east coast rules
Actually it's CST rules, however, the point stands.
.8753 is too low for the 4 star cutoff. Could have been an error the first time.
Looking through the system it appears they did change the cutoff for 4 stars. Too many the first time.
.8900 "appears" to be the 4 star cutoff. That makes 300 players 4 star or higher in the composite.
I will get with the team and find out if this was the final decision.
I agree with that.
Can someone please explain how the hell tOSU is ranked higher than LSU on the 247 team rankings?
LSU 15- 4 stars 7 - 3 stars
tOSU 11- 4 stars 7 - 3 stars
Also LSU has a higher average on their recruits. Something is not right here.
Yes. We tweaked it to bring it more in line with the industry average of four stars awarded and slightly moved the cutoff up. We plan to tweak it once or twice more if necessary in the next 30-60 days just to make sure that our formula is a fair representation of the industry in terms of star ratings.
Keep in mind, though, that the team rankings formula just reads the number- composite or otherwise. There is no "star" calculation.

Right. I was fine with it ... just was wondering. I agree that it needed to be changed because a guy in a previous class that was a three-star on all four sites was a composite four-star. But now he's a three, so whatever it was tweaked to was a good change imo.
They give more value to the highest rated players. OSU has higher rated 4 stars and they carry more weight when they calculate the team ratings.
Trust me its confusing to me as well.
Lol that doesn't make any sense but at least they're being innovative.
Danielle Hunter, Jamario Rasco, Anthony FREAK Johnson.. DL wrecking crew of 2013.
Yes sir, you're right about that.
I mentioned this the other day but this site is already blowing away the competition, when it comes to features & the ability to incorporate new ideas into the the network on almost a continuous basis (along with a willingness to do so). However, it's at a distinct disadvantage when it comes to longevity & the fact that both Rivals & ESPN have almost become very mainstream, where casual fans will check into as well, thanks in large part to both of their parent companies also owning major sports radio & television networks.
It doesn't matter how much better you are if you can't continue generate the necessary income to sustain the level of expenses you have when you're shelling out the wazoo towards both your R&D & IT teams, along with hiring away all of the elite talent from your competitors.
What better way to start getting some airplay among national radio & TV hosts, than to peak their interest level by coming up with a ranking system which actually incorporates all of the major recruiting sites equally, giving you an idea what all of the experts in the business think.
It makes plenty sense, should they be weighting a low 4 star the same amount as a high 4 star? Of course not, that would be ridiculous.
This is Michigan, fergodsakes.
