The Fifty7Fifty bots are always collecting sports related information from across the internet. One of the things we track are Q-scores.
The Q Score (popularly known as Q-Rating) is a measurement of the familiarity and appeal of a brand, celebrity, company, or entertainment product.
The higher the Q Score, the more highly regarded the item or person is, among those who are aware of the subject.
Of course we are only interested in sports related Q-scores, and today we are focused on the Q-scores of teams.
It’s an interesting time in the sports calendar. The NFL Draft just concluded, the NBA and NHL playoffs are in full swing, and of course it’s ML Baseball season…
Sports Q Ratings are highly dependent on what season it is and what is happening at any given time. We are collecting data each month to see if we can get an overview of an entire sports cycle.
Some teams popularity is such that they always show up in the Rankings ( The Yankees, Lakers, Cowboys, etc.) Others, like the Arizona Cardinals only show up near the top of the list when they have the number one overall pick in the draft AND screw the pooch trying to trade last years number one pick.
Interestingly, with the Dallas Cowboys having such a quiet off season they check in at Number 50 this month – easily the lowest raking since we have been compiling data.

This month there are 3 non-professional ( that is, the players don’t get paid… ) teams making the list. The NCAA Champion Virginia Cavaliers join Duke basketball and the ever present Alabama Crimson Tide in these rankings.
Duke basketball and ‘Bama football are easily the two highest rated college teams each and every week.
The Golden State Warriors continue to dominate these rankings – more than doubling every other NBA team that they are not currently battling in this round of the playoffs. As a result of the LeBron led Lakers failing to make the playoffs Steph Curry ( as well as James Harden ) passed up James as the highest rated players.
It will be interesting to see if they can keep the top spot once the season ends.
