#103 | SimCBB | Rankings and Polls


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I would like to go over a new feature for the 2023 SimCBB season. Polls are now going to be handled on the interface.


Where do I go to Submit a Poll?

Navigate to the SimCBB schedule page from the navbar or landing page. You will want to click the "Submit College Poll" button now on the left-hand side of the screen.



When submitting, use the dropdowns to select a team at the respective rank position. The dropdowns are keyboard friendly, and you can use the tab key to navigate between each dropdown from left to right.

When selecting a team in a dropdown, their current record within the season will be shown. That way, you as a user have access to their most recent record. I am working on a way to display recent games, though that may be done during the middle of the season.

When you've filled out all 25 spots, click on the submit button to submit your poll. The modal will close, and the poll will be submitted under your username to the Interface DB.



Where can I look at the Official Poll?

Right below the "Submit College Poll" Button


The Official Poll

When viewing the Official Poll, users can select seasons and weeks from the dropdown to view a specific poll from that timeframe. At the moment, none of the previous season polls are available, and it will take some time to collect the data and then migrate it to the interface. Once we're in the season, we will be able to compare polls from separate weeks of each other.



When will polls submitted be synced? When can we submit?

Great question. Polls are going to be ran on Sunday at noon with each weekly sync.

Here is how submitting works: Once a day of games has been ran (A,B,C,D), the poll you're submitting will be submitted for the following week. The poll for Week 1 will be considered the Preseason Poll, with Week 2 being the poll after games are complete from week 1.

Keep in mind, college games are only ran on A and B days (Mondays & Wednesdays). This gives everyone a couple of days to rank teams and submit their polls by Sunday. The only exception to this rule will be during invitationals which will take place during 3B, 3C, and 3D (Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday).

What is the Week Zero Poll?

That is the preview poll for testing this feature. It is also based on the ranking algorithm I created this off-season to put an estimate on team rankings.


When can we submit our Preseason Poll?

You can do it now.


What's Next?

For College Basketball, nothing. Just need to run the NBA Summer League; and then after that, both leagues will begin season play simultaneously starting September 25th.


Hope y'all are well and have a great day.
