Team F

Opp. Win Percentage- .6738
Total margin of victory- 204
Margin of victory per game- 17
Current BCS top 25- 6
Top 25 at time- 5
Top 50 BCS- 7
Sub 75 BCS- 5

That's right, your 6-6 Mississippi State Bulldogs should be playing for the national championship. They played 6 top 25 BCS schools... sure they lost them all, but that's beside the point, however they did beat #37 ranked Bowling Green by 1 point. But they beat the crap out of Troy and Alcorn State to pump up their margin of victory stats.

Once you take the names off the teams and you strip them of their current rankings (which have been impacted by their preseason rank), things boil down to a simple choice between two options.

Well, and once you take away their Win-Loss record.  That's kinda a big omission.

His "Margin of Victory per Game" has one HUGE flaw. He reduces the points in the losses, but then only divides by the total wins. So, if a team completely blew out an FCS school as like 50-1, and lost 11 more games by a few points apiece, they would have an amazing margin of victory per game. He needs to divide that number by the total number of games. For Alabama, he only divided by 10 instead of 11, again trying to keep consistent with his math.

Just for grins I compiled ASUs stats and their numbers could easily put them in the #2 spot:
Opp. Winning Percentage .5931
Total Margin of Victory (Season) 221
Margin of Victory per Game 22.1 (by his math), or 18.41 by real math
Current BCS Top 25 Opp. 3
Coaches' Top 25 Opp. At Time 4
Top 50 BCS Opp. Played 7
Sub-75 BCS Opp. Played 2
Avg. Current BCS Rank of Opp. 41.6

So yeah, he's an SEC Homer.

So how bad does OSU get beat by FSU?  It might just get as bad as last year.

jasimo: How do you figure?

Interesting. An excerpt regarding Casher's statement from the official report:

Once back at their apartment (Casher and Winston were roommates), the female and Winston went into Winston's bedroom. After about 10 minutes Casher and Darby peeked in the room and saw the fem.ale performing oral sex on Winston. Casher stated the door to Winston's room was broken and did not latch closed. A few minutes later he watched as the female and Winston removed their own clothing and climbed on the bed and began to engage in sexual activity. Casher stated he went into the room to see if the female would engage in sexual activity with him as well (as has happened with other females he and Winston have brought back to their apartment); however, the female saw him and told him to get out. A little while later, Casher stated he tried to video tape Winston and the female; however, when the female saw him she again told him to leave. The female then turned off the light and went with Winston into the bathroom.

It's a non-story because TPD has now released its documents on the case, and everybody can now see the girl was completely full of shiat.  She had multiple stories of the incident, all of which were completely torpedoed by the DNA results, toxicology reports and physical exam at the hospital.

The only story here is that a dumb college kid lied to the cops about farking a football player.  TPD not only didn't cover it up, its investigation was just fine.

8 teams.  SEC, Big #, Pac 12 and ACC conference winners + 3 wildcards, chosen with the BCS formula, max 1 wildcard per conference.  Seed by BCS standings.

For 2012, that would give:
(1) Notre Dame*
(2) Alabama
(3) Florida*
(4) Oregon*
(5) Kansas St
(6) Stanford
(12) FSU
(NR) Wisconsin

(1) LSU
(2) Alabama*
(3) Oklahoma St
(4) Stanford*
(5) Oregon
(7) Boise St.*
(10) Wisconsin
(15) Clemson

(1) Auburn
(2) Oregon
(3) TCU*
(4) Stanford*
(5) Wisconsin*
(6) Ohio St
(7) Oklahoma
(13) VT

Make it longer than 3 rounds and you're increasing the likelihood of injury to a player on a team that's actually a championship contender in a game against a team that really has no business being in the bracket.  Even as it is, some of these teams aren't serious contenders (2012 Wisconsin, I'm looking at you)

They forgot 'number of losses'. Which, since two of the five have zero losses, renders every bit of the rest of that meaningless.

meanmutton: BiffDangler: It's actually a very thoughtfully written article and I agree 100%.  If Auburn wins this week they should most def. be in the title game.

It's a rationalization that excludes the single most important reason why Auburn doesn't deserve to be in that game.

A loss isn't a loss if it happens in the SEC or something....

The four team playoff next year is a step in the right direction. A 12 team playoff would be the ideal format IMO.

Top four get a bye. 5-8 host 9-12 on campus.

1-4 host the winners on campus.

Semifinals and finals are held like bowls (Sugar, Orange, Fiesta...whatever).
