Welcome to the home of the Rewards Ranking/Rating page.
Below you will find all the years that have been evaluated with this system, and the rankings/ratings information regarding how the teams fared before (and eventually after) the post season tournaments (NCAA and NIT) were played. (All the teams that played against a Division 1A team have been combined into one 'team' under the pseudonym NON_DIV1A, starting in 1995-96. Years prior to 1995-96 use "N1A" for that designation, along with three letter codes (whose expansions can be found here) for all the other teams as well, which is why the "separation" appears in the format below.) A summary of how well the Rewards system has matched the two major polls recently (sportswriters - AP - and coaches - UPI or USA Today) can be found on this page. A brief description of the basic Rewards strategy can be found here, and ratings for the most recent week can be found here. (Here is the Rewards page for NCAA football.) The 100 men's basketball teams - with the highest Rewards ratings - can be found here.
