re: Bottom 5 P5 Schools: Week 12--no changes - profwilson
I actually think Illinois is worse than anyone on that list except [i]maybe[/i] Kansas. I'd have them at #2. And I also think Vanderbilt is worse than North Carolina. After a promising start, the Commodores have completely collapsed (but I understand that the early-season win against Kansas State...

re: Who of the top 19 do you think LSU is better than? (LSU ranked 20) - profwilson
Right now, on a neutral field, I think we'd be favored against Washington State, UCF, Michigan State, Washington, and NC State. The Top 10 would all be favored against us. The others would likely be plus or minus three points or so either way....

[quote]Probably beat Troy...not State.[/quote] This is absolutely right. The Troy loss was a complete fluke, epitomized by the field goal that they kicked just before half time, after having time put back on the clock, that went through off the crossbar and ended up being the margin of victory. ...

re: Are u more concerned with bama or the refs? - profwilson
If you actually read the article that you linked, it says that SEC officials "are the least biased in the Power 5." So, according to an actual systematic, data-based analysis, this issue is less a problem in the SEC than anywhere else. In addition, the article specifically disavows the idea that a...

re: Is recruiting the worst part of college FB? - profwilson
People are making this way too complicated. If you want to spread the talent out more evenly around college football and increase the number of teams that can realistically compete for championships (which I think would be a good thing, to a point), there is a simple solution: reduce the number of ...

re: As an LSU fan, who should I be pulling for in Auburn vs A&M? - profwilson
It probably doesn't matter THAT much, but I would say it's marginally better for LSU if A&M wins. That would help to put LSU above Auburn in the bowl pecking order come season's end. In that scenario, LSU would have a chance to end the season as the SEC's third-most desirable team, even assuming a...

Sumlin's job security? - profwilson
To the Aggies on this board: how would you rate Kevin Sumlin's job security right now? It's amazing how quickly things can change. Through about week 4, everybody thought he was toast. Then they appeared to right the ship, and "Fire Sumlin!" talk seemed to die down. After the loss to Mississippi...

[quote]Gives LSU a 63% chance to make playoffs. [/quote] I'm not sure where you're getting this. It gives LSU a 66% chance to make the playoffs IF they were to win out--a pretty big assumption. If they just beat Alabama next week (which the model says they have a 10% chance to do), their chance...

re: College Football Playoff Calculator - profwilson
It looks like their cutoff for showing a team on the chart was a top 25 ranking in at least one of the three ratings systems that they look at (FPI, ELO, and the AP Poll), and/or at least a 1% chance of winning their conference or making the playoff. Kentucky doesn't make that cut--whereas Florida ...
