I was playing with some numbers and thought I’d share. It doesn't mean much but thought I’d pass it on. Doesn't tell you much one wouldn't already conclude, but I’d give the edge to Bama and Oregon if they all finish undefeated and feel good about it.
Comparing Bama, FSU, Oregon, and Ohio St, he...

I have not posted on here in awhile but wanted to put in my $.02. I'm blessed to be an LSU alum as well as one of two smaller teams with very uninteresting and passionless athletic programs. We're fortunate to love a team which is nationally relevant, because it's not all that common. Usually we wi...

This is a dumb question, but I'd rather ask here than to people IRL. Never played before, and just assumed it was last man standing. :lol:
Is that generally true? Could a survivor league end in Week 7? Or does it continue the entire year?
Specifically, I'm in a basic ESPN league, it started wi...

I don't really care what happens as long as they get to the playoffs and win in the playoffs. Denver fans good taste of Peyton's Colts did last year.

This board is dead, surprised not more talk about the big game just around the corner on 9/21. I guess it's just a slow week in SEC country.

I feel pretty much the same going into the TCU game as I did the Clemson game, although I think Clemson was a better team pound for pound than TCU will be.

May be a MSB post, but whatever, I don't want to discuss other teams. So, I kept some info in spreadsheet for a work a few years back. Had some time and updated it recently. It’s meaningless, and I wish I could add more data, but it is consistent and provides some perspective of the last 10 years.
