Made some adjustments to the formula today that put more consideration into when games were played. I think that’s made a positive difference and more accurately judged teams who have improved as the season has gone on in a similar way to how a selection committee would. It’s on a sliding scale, and games played in November are worth about 70% of what games played today would be.
