How does this sound?


That's kind of a cool idea.

How the hell you can have a team with a record of 5-2 be higher than a team that has 8-0 record or how a team with a 4-2 record be higher than a team that has a 7-1 record. Is this really how collage tables work or is this just you???

The way things are going you could have a team that has lost 2 games be top and have a team that goes unbeaten all season down in 7th! how fair is this??


Ever hear of Boise State (among others)? If you have an easy schedule, you don't get quality points for your wins.

Besides, Rodent has said that he's making some tweaks to the formula. I'm guessing by the time the end of the season rolls around, these anomalies will mostly disappear, whether from his tweaks or from the formula working things out.

But bottom line: You can't play an easy schedule and expect to be top-ranked when you win them all. Just like in the real BCS.


With coming from England, now living in Canada I have never heard of any of the teams! or know who i s good and who is not!!!

In England you have leagues and some of them are brocken into North, South, East, and west but you always get the same amout for a win!! Or in some sprts you get a bonus point for winning by a bigger score!

I did try to google and look for the collage tables, to see who they work in real life butnot find them anywhere!!

Thanks

In real life you have your AP poll, USA today coaches poll, and the BCS rankings (which takes the polls into account as well as computer rankings).

Here's the current polls:
http://espn.go.com/college-football/rankings

You'll notice that Houston (9-0) is ranked behind a bunch of 8-1 teams, because Conference USA is generally considered a weaker conference and Houston's schedule is considered weaker. Boise State is undefeated (or near it) almost every year, but gets left out of the championship game because it's from a weak conference. That's why this tournament has a playoff bracket at the end instead of a single title game, which is a departure from real life.

It all must look pretty silly to someone who didn't grow up with the sport. :lol:

Yeah, if you're not from here, this whole thing looks pretty weird. Hell, people argue every single year about whether the real college bowl system is fair or not. The fact that that argument is going on here is part of the fun of the tourney. It does suck if you got into this tournament not knowing that, but for us Yankees, it's probably one of the factors that made us want to play this tournament.

It was a close one in Atlanta this week as Georgia Tech put a thrilling end to Clemson's recent rise. The down-south shoot-out showcased both teams offenses. The Yellow Jackets drew first blood putting up 10 points to Clemson's three in the first quarter. Clemson responded in the second quarter, but what turned out to be the decisive goalline stand kept them from taking the lead. They headed to halftime down for the first time in 3 weeks. It looked like Clemson would rebound in the second half as they scored two touchdowns in the third quarter to take the lead for the first time in the game. But Georgia Tech came right back with two fourth quarter touchdowns. An extra point by Georgia Tech iced the 37-36 victory, bringing them to 4-2 in conference play, which will place them near the top of the ACC Coastal Division. Clemson drops to 3-2 giving the Florida State Seminoles a chance to share the lead in the the Atlantic Division if they beat North Carolina this weekend.

Excellent, guys.

Fresno State was doing great with the bye week, but then BYE's cornerback intercepted a pass and returned it for a touchdown.

Coach Ricrem could only shake his head following Rutgers blowout home loss to West Virgina, a potentially huge blow in their quest for the Big East title.

"I don't know if we bought too much of our own hype, or what, but that was embarrassing. I mean we couldn't run the ball, throw the ball, or play defense. Those first 3 3 and outs (empty trips on my first turn in 3 of the 4 games) really set the tone for the evening. I have to hand it to West Virgina, they were really motivated on defense today. And it wasn't just the players (dice) that came up short today, I did too. I don't know what I was doing when we took 4 false start penalties in a row in the 3rd quarter (missed a turn in all 4 games). I guess we'll just have to regroup and prepare for USF next week."
Highest score- 2027 2/13/10
