Professor Frink’s Power Rankings, Week 6

via i37.tinypic.com 

Here's this week's summary, for your viewing pleasure.  Now featuring even more columns of hot, tasty data!  Ratings and other details await you ahead.

Here's how the ratings are calculated.  (In trying to be brief, I didn't explain this too well last week; I beg your pardon if I'm overly verbose this time.)  The first step is to calculate Points For per Game, and Points Against per Game, for each team.  Easy enough; here's the statistics geek part.  These two leaguewide data sets for offense & defense both conform to a "Bell Curve", or Normal Distribution, that can be graphed.  Depending on where each team lies on that curve, they have a value between 0 and 1.  The purpose of this is to more accurately measure each team's true position among the population of the league's teams.  Now you have every team rated from 0 to 1, on offense and on defense.  Add those two numbers and you've got an overall rating for each team.  Last, multiply by 50 to convert the ratings onto a 0-100 scale, making them more readable and intuitive.  Whew.

This week I added three data columns for the offensive and defensive "curved" ratings & totals.  Without further fanfare, here are this week's ratings:
