Ohio High School Hockey Rankings

Ranking the Top 8 Ohio hockey teams.  The rankings are derived from a mathmatical formula which includes an X-factor.  (The X-factor is yet another formula that assigns values to the human poll's and yet another value to the previously calculated mathmatical polls.) The Y factor is where it gets interesting as yet anohter factor.  The Y (as in why is everyone a winner factor) is assigned and carries some of the more interesting weight, because as we all know under the current system, the District Champions are the teams that advance to States, which does not equate to the best teams in the state making States.  (I have said repeatedly that this needs to end, and is easily solved.  Each districts top four teams should advance to regional district play. Where by the team with the best record at the end of the season stays on to be the home host to one of each of the remaining teams from each of the other districts.  Thusly establishing a 16 team comprehensive play off.  allowing for the best 4 teams to qualify for the final 4.  Its not rocket science, it is fair as the top 16 teams all have a fair chance to make states at that point, but via playoffs only the top four advance).  The results of this mid season data are listed first followed by two of the individual mathematical poll examples are below. Expect some movement following this weekends events.
