We have built a very detailed algorithm and have filed a patent for it. Our algorithm is our patented intellectual property. The “program attributes” for the sport of baseball are what we believe recruits and families should evaluate before making a choice / commitment.
Each and every attribute is scored according to our proprietary algorithm using different data points, including yearly performance data, combined stats of team performance (ex. bb+hbp / K’s = bbhk ratio), historical performance data over a set date range, national graduation rates, etc.
We wanted to make sure our algorithm was built the right way and completely different than anything in amateur athletics. Opinions on programs are not our business. That is left up to the athlete, their coaches, their agents, and the process that will always be.
It’s easy to look at rankings or W/L% polls … but how many players are actually recruited by those programs, and in truth, W/L is not the “end-all be-all” of programs. For example, Florida won the natty in 2017, but they did not have the top-ranked performance excellence score in our platform. Are they in scoring in our top 10, absolutely, but not scored #1. They received the top score for post-season success for sure.
And most importantly, ALL college programs scored in our platform are ranked (displayed on search page – not compared) against only programs in an equal comp set … ex. NAIA only … D3 only … D1 only …
We are a college comparison company with a very objective approach to comparing, scoring and ranking … apples to apples, not apples to oranges.
In the near future, we are going to implement a simple star system assigned to each program attribute.
