Designed solely for predictive purposes, our current ratings improved upon our original ratings in several ways, most notably by incorporating a preseason rating (or "prior") for each team. Using preseason ratings improves the overall predictive accuracy of the system, although the impact of a team's preseason rating decreases over time.
