Ypsilanti, MI —
As the college football regular season in Michigan nears its end, a handful of teams are looking at the conference standings, with an eye on preparing for the post-season. Whether that post-season is a one-and-done bowl game or a chance at a run of games that could lead to a national championship, the TEAM PERFORMANCE RATINGS (c) or TPR(c) season draws to a close with the end of the regular season.
Barring a total collapse in its style of play in their final regular season game against Adrian this Saturday, Hope College will claim the first ever TPR(c) Championship.
Team Performance Ratings – Week # 10:
- Hope College (12.3 point average)
- Olivet College (8.8)
- Siena Heights (8.6)
- Ferris State (8.4)
- Concordia-AA (8.3)
- Albion College, Grand Valley State (7.9)
- U-M (7.8)
- Hillsdale College, Wayne State (7.6)
- Alma College (7.3)
- Michigan Tech. (7.1)
- Western Mich. (6.0)
- Saginaw Valley State (5.6)
- Michigan State (5.4)
- Eastern Mich. (5.2)
- Central Mich. (4.8)
- Davenport-GR (4.7)
- Adrian College (4.2)
- Northern Mich. (3.3)
- Kalamazoo College (3.1)
- Finlandia Univ. (1.0)
- Northwood Univ. (.9)
- Lawrence Tech. (.8)
The Stacey Y. Dixon Memorial Award and it’s accompanying trophy will be given to the Michigan based college or university team that has the highest Team Performance Rating (TPR) at the end of the regular season. Post season statistics are not used in the TPRs because not all teams will participate in a post season game or games.
The late Stacey Y. Dixon (Young) was the second oldest daughter of Dixon Media Group founder, Tony Dixon. She passed in December of 2014 at the age of 36, from complications of gestational diabetes. Plans are in the works to create a fund to do further research into the causes and preventative treatments for this condition.
“Stacey was a joy to know and be around, such a team player. In the early days of our video production service, she was always ready to tackle a project and worked tirelessly to see it to a successful completion,” states Tony Dixon. “This award and the system that it is built upon, is a testament to her drive and dedication to team success.”
“Our rating system and the award that goes to the season’s winner will be an ongoing project and the staple of our branded TV project, ‘COLLEGE FOOTBALL WRAP-UP(c)’.”
