So there was no trends from season to season in terms of average GUESS rating?
In that D1 data, it variates about 10 points which seems like a lot. I'm assuming there's no trends and it's just random? One season a school has 78 and the next a 71?
Yes, season to season it's random. There's a lot of things that can skew it. If a school doesn't have many recruits closest to it, that number will be all over the place due to the small sample size. If a school has an unusual amount of P/K or even QB closest to it, that'll drop the average or if they have very few of those, their average would be higher. So that number doesn't really mean much in the data I gave. I thought it might when I first set this up, and I've just left it in ever since.
