Final Sagarin ratings out

Posted by Bob Condotta

With the season over, the final Sagarin ratings are out, updated through the bowl games, so thought I'd pass them along.

Here they are.

As you can see, UW finished ranked No. 55 in the nation and eighth in the Pac-10 ahead of WSU and Stanford.

In the final strength of schedule rating, UW fell from the No. 1 perch in the nation it held most of the year to No. 2, behind UCLA. But as noted yesterday, SOS was a category the Pac-10 dominated this year --- nine Pac-10 teams were among the final 19 in the nation in SOS.

Here's the list, with their national rank:

2, UW
5, Oregon
6, Arizona
7, Cal
10, Stanford
12, Washington State
16, Oregon State
19, Arizona State
29, USC

UPDATED RECRUITING RATINGS --- Speaking of ratings, the latest rating of 2008 recruiting classes has UW at No. 10 in the nation, No. 2 in the Pac-10 behind UCLA, which is seventh nationally.

However, as some of you have mentioned, UW is more likely to move down than up as the final month of recruiting passes. UW is likely to add only another player or two or three to a class that already includes 25 commits. As other schools fill their classes, some could move ahead of UW.

UW's average player rating is 3.16 which is sixth in the Pac-10 behind, in order, USC, UCLA, Cal, Arizona State and Stanford., meanwhile, has UW at No. 25 in the nation and fifth in the Pac-10 behind UCLA, USC, Arizona and Cal.

Some of you have asked why there's a difference in the rankings. Both simply use a points system, assigning every recruit a value and then adding up the number. The difference is based simply in how the two sites have evaluated the players. At some point, I'll try to delve further into that issue.
