The last few years I’ve attempted to quantify team’s performances against ranked teams, (historically a big factor in decisions made about getting into playoffs) with a system that gives points to teams for the ranking of their opponents and adds or subtracts the point differential in their games, (adds in a win, subtracts in a loss). The ‘ranking’ points are 25 for playing a #1 ranked team, 24 for playing a #2 ranked team, etc., down to 1 point for playing a 25th ranked team. These points are easily computed by subtracting the ranking number from 26, (26-1 = 25; 26-25 =1, etc.). Over the course of the season, I add the points earned by each team in their games against ranked teams as a sort of standings but have always maintained that this is just one thing to look at in evaluating the team, not a final overall ranking.

Syracuse is -27, a worse ART than anyone we play. I’ve recorded 195 teams that have played ranked teams and done better than that. None of the 32 other teams that have done as badly or worse are Power 5 schools, so we are the worst Power 5 school in the country vs. ranked teams. We’re still better than Stanislaus State, however. And Chaminade.

Syracuse opponents:
Boston College +6
Butler +14
Canisius
Central Florida +14
Cincinnati +14
Clemson +44
Colgate -10
Cornell -11
Duke +78
Florida State +31
Georgetown -18
Georgia Tech +70
Gonzaga +14
Louisiana State +4
Louisville +4
U of Miami +15
New Hampshire
Niagara
North Carolina +142
North Carolina State +5
Notre Dame +8
Oregon +8
Pittsburgh +21
Tennessee +50
Virginia -20
Virginia Tech +31
Wake Forest +2

The teams we have played so far have a collective ART of +330. The teams we have yet to play are +352.
