Your wins over top 25 teams are only for teams ranked when you play them. If you play a good, unranked team that is ranked later, I figure that team's contribution to your strength of schedule should even that out.

Just wondering. Think thats why some of the RPI seem weird. A team could actually have beaten 5 teams with a 8-1 record and still be computed lower than a team who has beat 5 under 500 teams that were ranked early.

Just trying to help some for next season. Either way like that your running it.

Postby AmphibiousRodent on Wed Dec 07, 2011 2:03 am

Week 12 games have been sent out, and I've put out another call to fill our two empty spots.

A few of this week's games could have a major impact on the playoff field. Here's a look at each conference.
ACC Atlantic: This Division is in disarray, with Clemson (5-5, 4-3 ACC) and Maryland (7-3, 4-3) leading. Clemson holds the head-to-head tiebreaker with a 33-9 win in Week 7.

ACC Coastal: What is this, basketball season? #13 North Carolina (9-1, 5-1) and #18 Duke (8-2, 5-1) are tied atop the standings. Duke faces third-place Georgia Tech (4-5, 4-2), then the two Tobacco Road schools face each other in Week 13.

Big-12: #3 Iowa State (9-0, 6-0 Big-12) has the leg up in this year's strongest conference so far, with #17 Kansas State (7-3, 5-2) the last remaining test. While Iowa State doesn't have it mathematically clinched, in reality Kansas State and #9 Missouri (8-2, 5-2) are fighting for second place and an at-large bid.

Big East: West Virginia (7-2, 5-0 Big East) has answered the call I issued in my half-way predictions by taking sole possession of first in the conference. The Mountaineers are inching closer to the Top 25 (they're #30 this week), and have a chance to knock off #25 South Carolina (7-3) this week. Pitt (6-3, 4-1) will challenge WVA for the conference title in Week 13.

Big Ten Legends: #2 Michigan State (9-1, 5-1 Big Ten) and #20 Michigan (8-2, 4-1) will win up tied if they win out, with Michigan's 46-29 win in Week 7 as the tiebreaker. But first Michigan has to get past #4 Ohio State (9-1, 5-1) in Week 13.

Big Ten Leaders: #4 Ohio State (9-1, 5-1) currently leads, but unheralded Penn State (4-5, 4-1) has come on strong in conference play and has a shot at knocking off the Buckeyes this week.

C-USA East: This week's game between Southern Miss (6-3, 4-1 CUSA) and UAB (6-4, 4-2) will determine the division title.

C-USA West: #14 Tulsa (8-2, 4-1 CUSA) and unranked Houston (7-2, 4-1) are tied for the lead, and will meet in Week 13 for the division title.

Independents: #1 BYU (9-0) is still on track for the top seed heading into the playoffs, as long as the Cougars can maintain a strong finish against three middle-of-the-road WAC teams. Meanwhile, #19 Notre Dame (6-4) is making a run at a playoff bid with a 5-1 record over its last six games.

MAC East: While #6 Buffalo (8-1, 3-1 MAC) doesn't have it clinched just yet, it would take a lot for either Kent State (4-4, 2-2) or Temple (4-6, 3-3) to overtake them.

MAC West: #5 Ball State (9-1, 4-1) has been solid all season, but a 30-28 loss to Western Michigan in Week 9 left the Cardinals tied with Central Michigan (7-4, 4-1) for the division lead. Ball State holds the tiebreaker with a 34-21 win in Week 8. Toledo (6-3, 3-1) is also in the mix.

Mountain West: The top two teams in the conference go head to head this week, with #10 UNLV (6-3, 3-1 MWC) visiting #12 Air Force (8-2, 4-1). The winner will have a major advantage in a conference with five, count 'em, FIVE ranked teams. #11 Colorado State (6-2, 2-1) is also lurking in the shadows.

PAC-12 North: Washington State (7-3, 5-2) has come out of nowhere to tie for the North lead with #22 Stanford (6-3, 5-2), but Stanford holds the tiebreaker with a 42-24 Week 7 win. Cal (6-3, 4-2) is also in the mix, and visits Stanford this week.

PAC-12 South: After catching up on his games, #24 USC (7-2, 5-1) is no longer undefeated, but still holds the South lead over Arizona State (6-4, 5-2).

SEC East: This division has been a slugfest, and #25 South Carolina (7-3, 5-2 SEC) has emerged as the top dog so far, with #16 Vanderbilt (7-2, 4-2) right behind. South Carolina holds the tiebreaker with a 34-28 Week 4 win over then-#2 Vanderbilt.

SEC West: If Arkansas (6-4, 3-2) is going to catch the inexplicable Mississippi State (5-5, 5-1), they will have to start this week when the teams meet on Arkansas' home map. On a side note, Ole Miss has three wins, two of them against ranked teams.

Sun Belt: Arkansas State 7-3, 4-2 Sun Belt) has a chance to knock #23 Middle Tennessee 7-2, 4-0) down a peg this week, but the Red Wolves and Florida Atlantic (5-3, 4-1) will need help from MTSU's remaining opponents (Florida International and North Texas) if they want to catch the Blue Raiders.

WAC: Nevada (6-3, 3-1 WAC) lost 44-33 to Hawaii last week, which let #8 Louisiana Tech (8-2, 4-1) hope again for a conference title. Nevada and LA Tech face off this week on Nevada's home map.

Conference strength:
Conf., nonconference W-L, PCNT
ACC, 19-23, .452
Big-12, 18-12, .600
Big East, 11-25, .306
Big Ten, 26-24, .520
C-USA, 24-22, .522
Independents, 23-15, .605
MAC, 28-24, .538
MWC, 23-16, .590
PAC-12, 16-19, .457
SEC, 20-23, .465
Sun Belt, 15-18, .455
WAC, 17-19, .472

Losing to San Diego State right now, putting me (Boise State) at five losses for the season. That should be enough to drop me out of the RPI anyway...but if for some fluke I stay highly ranked, I will decline my invitation for the postseason playoffs. No five-loss team has any business making the playoffs over a 2 or 3 loss team. Not sure how the formula is keeping me up there so high.

Such a promising start to the season, but I've fizzled out here in the end. Fun tourney though AR...hope it comes back for another run in 2012-13.

Postby AmphibiousRodent on Fri Dec 09, 2011 7:39 pm

As we get nearer to the end of the season, there are a few divisions that will have uneven conference records due to the rescheduling I had to do. The SEC West is an example, where Mississippi State will end up with one more conference game than Arkansas because Arkansas' conference schedule included Tennessee, which dropped. This may affect the division champion. We have two options here:

1. Drop the inter-conference games so the division champion is determined only by games within that division.
2. Count the replacement game as a conference game and even it out that way.

I'm leaning toward the first option. What is everyone's preference here?

A few of this week's games could have a major impact on the playoff field. Here's a look at each conference.
ACC Atlantic: This Division is in disarray, with Clemson (5-5, 4-3 ACC) and Maryland (7-3, 4-3)* leading. Clemson holds the head-to-head tiebreaker with a 33-9 win in Week 7.



*Correction (I think): Maryland was 3-3 in division at the time of this post. At least that's what I see from the games played.

The disarray has been resolved ... by Florida State.

Florida State (5-3 ACC, 8-3 overall) has clinched the ACC Atlantic with a win over a struggling Virginia squad (0-7, 0-11). Florida State has head-to-head victories over both of the other contenders for a division title, Clemson and Maryland, who may not even finish at 5-3. Clemson (4-3, 5-5) looks set to lose to NC State, and though Maryland (3-3, 5-5) has an early lead over Wake Forest, they would still need a victory next week against NC State to reach 5-3 in the division.

In nonconference action, Clemson will travel to South Carolina, and Florida State will head to Florida to finish out their regular season schedules.

Florida State will most likely take on either North Carolina or Duke in the ACC championship the following week.

(I believe all this is correct. I originally was looking at it cuz I thought I had a chance to make the ACC championship game, but I don't think that's the case.)

Yeah, I think you shouldn't take inter-conference games into account. If that means that a 5-2 or 6-3 (in conference play) team edges out a 5-3 team then that's just the way the cookie crumbles. Personally, I don't like bringing in some non-conference game just "to even it out." So, if I'm understanding what you're saying. I agree with you.

Amphibious -

Do you have a rule that +.500 coaches get their jobs back next year. I.e. they get an invite into the FBS tourney for next year (if you're doing one). I know the NCAA tourney has that rule, and I think it's a good one. I would recommend it if you do not have it as a rule already. Anyway, my question if you do have that rule: If my team finishes the season at .500 (which is possible), would I still be invited back because during my period "coaching" I've had better than a .500 record?

Thanks for the great tourney. Looks like I'll be done after next week, as I noted above.

Agentcom - I settled on teams with 4-win seasons getting an invite to keep their team next season. That way even if you're having a crappy season, you have something to play for at the end of the season rather than just going "screw it" and giving up on the tournament.

Also agent, you may be out of the running for the ACC title game, but there will be a run of regular bowl games in addition to the playoff bracket, so you still have something to fight for.

You are only allowed to have 50% in regards to players entered in a tourney before allowing public players--keep that in mind--you should be ok but you might start with 6 wins first and then if room permits go from there

Mountain West: The top two teams in the conference go head to head this week, with #10 UNLV (6-3, 3-1 MWC) visiting #12 Air Force (8-2, 4-1). The winner will have a major advantage in a conference with five, count 'em, FIVE ranked teams. #11 Colorado State (6-2, 2-1) is also lurking in the shadows.


With CSU beating UNLV --next week's game with AF will be even bigger :)
