Boise State's way too high. My formula is broken, even though I tweaked it again to lean less toward strength of schedule. But I guess a strong schedule, plus 4-1 on the road, plus 4-1 against Top-25 teams goes a long way.



If that's the case, it doesn't sound TOO broken to me. Sounds like they've performed really well this season.

I'm with agent on this one...the Broncos are playing well ;)

Of course last week's blowout loss at UNLV will drop Boise State out of the top-10 I'd guess.

I think the problem is you have nothing in the formula for when someone losses to a weak opponent, that should effect then negatively and also home losses should also.

That's probably it, Buck. I have that planned for next year's formula.

And sorry I haven't gotten the Week 11 games out yet folks, I've been caught up in some early deadlines. I'll try to get them out this afternoon.

looks like they may have had the two pointer they went for intercepted and ran back for two the other way--still winning but not by as much as hoped

NEWSWIRE (Blacksburg, VA): THE HONEYMOON IS OVER IN CLEMSON

Coach Agentcom's popularity is quickly waning after a 36-16 blowout loss against Virginia Tech. Agentcom's took over the Tigers in Week 6 and looked set to turn the 1-3 team around with three convincing ACC victories including a road victory against then #14 North Carolina. A 37-36 heartbreaker at Georgia Tech ended the streak, but still left Clemson outscoring its opponents 121-78 in 4 weeks.

After the game, Agentcom erupted in the Virginia Tech pressroom. "To have a mid-season coaching change, then play 4 road games in 5 weeks. Well, you know, I think these kids are playing pretty well. No, they're playing their hearts out out there. This week was supposed to be a bye for us and we're playing a road make-up game? Because of a snafu in travel arrangements? That's just wrong. You can't blame these kids for being tired. Except for the first quarter, we couldn't get decent field position. And the officiating? To call some of those calls questionable is generous to these ACC refs. I give credit, I mean those kids, they're just out there battling against everything."

The game, which the NCAA postponed earlier this season when it became clear that coaching changes, weather and scheduling problems would "significantly impact the game," was rescheduled from Week 5 to Saturday. Clemson appeared to be fresh in the opening quarter jumping out to a 10-0 lead, but fatigue quickly set in as Hokies scored 26 unanswered points in the next three quarters. Clemson mustered only a pair of field goals in the fourth quarter against Virginia Tech's second string, which itself put another 10 points on the board.

Clemson (4-5 overall, 3-3 in ACC) will try once again to generate some momentum when they return home to face the struggling Wake Forest
demon Deacons (2-5, 1-4). Virginia Tech (4-5, 3-2) will travel to Georgia Tech (4-5, 4-2).

When you do your RPI top 25 calcs do you update the numbers every week> By that I mean If a team beats a top 25 team in week 1, that week they should get credit for beating a top 25 team but when it gets to week 10 and that team that was 25th ranked is actually 1-9 that should be considered. If you got credit for beating top 25 teams that are currently top 25 teams I think that would make the rankings seem more acurate.

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.

Re: College Football FBS 2011 [WEEK 12]

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.
