NCAA Football Rankings – Week 12

Several things of interest this week. First, my numbers have Stanford as not only the best one-loss team in the country (as many real sports analysts are saying) but as the second best team overall! Could you imagine if the BCS rankings reflected mine?? Oh man, the media would have a field day. Next, I [...]

NCAA Football Rankings – Week 10

TCU solidified their place in my rankings. Oregon is still blowing everyone out of the water. Cal was dropped from the rankings this week, which I found interesting. My system noted that Cal should have won by more (not knowing about Riley being out). Bowl eligibility is becoming a big deal. My rankings places Oregon [...]

NCAA Football Rankings – Week 9

I feel just sick for Kevin Riley. I mean this guy took a lot of crap from Cal fans over the years, but as Ted Miller points out, he is 5th all-time in touchdown passes, and 6th all-time in offensive yards at Cal. Here’s to a great future for Riley, wherever life takes him from [...]

NCAA Football Rankings – Week 8

After being such a sad bear last week, I’m a very happy bear. My computer and the algorithm I programmed into it seem to like Cal too. They have the Bears ranked #9 in the country. HAHAHA. Part of that, is by my metrics (which are admittedly flawed) say that Cal has had the ninth [...]

NCAA Football Ranks – Week 7

Oops. I totally forgot to post these earlier. But since they’re based on computer info, they are unbiased by the current state of the Cal game and the result of the UCLA-Oregon game on Thursday. I was gonna add bowl predictions this week, but I want to get back to watching the Cal game. So [...]

NCAA Football Rankings – Week 6

Another football week has past. And those pesky Golden Bears put up a great game against UCLA. Sure, the passing game needs lots of work, but the defense and running game will keep us in games. And for their efforts, my ranking system has placed the Bears right behind the Crimson Tide at #6 in [...]

NCAA Football Rankings – Week 5

Here’s the rankings after the 5th week. Oregon is all the way up to number 1! My ranking system really looks like I have a Pac-10 bias. And thinking about it, maybe I have an offensive power bias (although defensive ability plays a key part in my system), which would be a Pac-10 bias. We’ll [...]

NCAA Football Rankings – Week 4

So there are several interesting things to point out in my rankings this week. There are no FCS teams in the top 25 anymore. And other than the Sun Belt, all of the FBS conferences are ranked above the FCS conferences. The rankings are liking Pac-10 schools right now. I find it esp weird that [...]

NCAA Football Rankings – Week 3

Hmmmm. I know my system really doesn’t work until at least half way through the season. However, it’s looking not bad. If you compare it to the official polls, you’ll see a good number of similarities (as well as good number of differences). (For you bigger nerds out there who were following my ranking strategy, [...]
