re: LSU FPI Ranking
The FPI has Bama as #1 after we beat them.

It’s a severely flawed system

re: LSU FPI Ranking
LSU was 4 on Sunday and Bama was 3. Their formula is bad.

No they didn't. Ohio St has been sitting at 1. Bama was at 3, and LSU 4, after we beat them though.

re: LSU FPI Ranking
It’s so bad it’s funny.

Just like any value for CFB Rankings...just a way to profit on the subjectivity in College Football. Makes for good water cooler talk and social media banter. Cha Ching.

Just hope in the end we win out and are not at the mercy of the committee. Would hate to be a PAC12 team right now. Misery.

re: LSU FPI Ranking
i have been saying for years i can't for the life of me understand the fpi.

lsu is currently #4 with clearly the best resume in cfb. fine, fpi is a predictive measure according to espn. iow, where the teams will end up. again, this makes no sense according to fpi's own data.

espn has the proj w/l at 12.4-0.6. so are they including the seccg? if so, that means lsu is predicted to lose a game because the win out % is only 44.8%. fpi has lsu beating ark and aggie which means fpi has lsu losing to uga. but that makes no sense because uga's predicted finish is 11.3-1.7 with predicted wins over aggie and ga tech. so it has both lsu and uga losing the seccg.

and how in tarnation is bama ahead of lsu?!? the predicted finish is 10.7-1.3 which is worse than lsu's. so if it is a predictive measure, then lsu should be ahead of bama. and how is bama's win out % higher than lsu's when bama has auburn left which fpi only gives bama a 68% chance to win.

Then let's see your explanation genius. Multiple people are noticing that it doesn't make sense

re: LSU FPI Ranking
I thought it was pretty decent back when it first came out around 2013 or 2014. I used it in winning efforts in various fantasy games. Then it became increasingly biased toward a certain team around the same time that team also started getting multiple ESPN specials. I haven't paid much attention to it since.

what multiple people? What doesn't make sense is why LSU is ranked so low. The numbers you are questioning, however, make perfect sense. They give LSU a 0.987 odds against Arkansas, 0.848 odds against A&M and if LSU beats either team OR Bama loses to Auburn, it gives lsu a 0.54 chance of beating Georgia. If you add those all up, you get 2.4 wins. Thus the 12.4-0.6 record projection.

You can do the same math with Georgia and come up with the 11.3-1.7 projected record. So this conclusion of yours is false. The numbers add up.

you mean other than the op and all the people who responded to it in this thread and every other thread every time this is brought up?

re: LSU FPI Ranking
I don’t know... makes sense to me. As mentioned the rankings are predictive. What they’re getting at is that if on a neutral field Clemson and Ohio State would be favored against us. Vegas says the same.

Not saying they’re right. I’ve seen enough to know my money would be on LSU and would get great odds on the game, but that’s what Vegas and these metrics predict. Fellow degenerates should be celebrating we’re underdogs in these potential matchups, give our tigers a chip on their shoulder to boot!
