Top 25 poll
« on: September 09, 2010, 08:48:05 AM »
I know there's already a thread on the polls but let's be honest....polls made up of egghead writers (such as Bret McMurphy of Tampa, Fl who ranked Boise #1, Michigan #16 and Arkansas #24) are unpredictable and usually off. Someone yesterday, I think it was Mike Leach, mentioned that they voted Boise at #3 even though they didn't think they were the #3 team because they figured that's where they would end up because their schedule was so easy. It's really pretty ridiculous, you should rank teams relative to the teams around them, not just pick an arbitrary position for each one.

That got me to thinking about how I would rank each team and figured I might as well type it here and see how other woopiggas ranked them. Honestly, it's not as easy as it sounds. Especially since I was at the hogs game last week and didn't get to watch anyone else. But, I listed out the teams in the order of who could beat who as of right now, obviously this will change as we get to see each team more.

Below are the teams that received votes in this week's AP poll, and below that are my rankings.

 1.   Alabama (47)    1-0   1484   1
 2.   Ohio State (4)    1-0   1412   2
 3.   Boise State (8)    1-0   1399   3
 4.   TCU   1-0   1256   6
 5.   Texas (1)   1-0   1192   5
 6.   Nebraska   1-0   1105   8

 8.   Florida   1-0   1065   4
 9.   Iowa   1-0   1044   9
10.   Oklahoma   1-0   917   7
11.   Wisconsin   1-0   881   12
12.   Miami (FL)   1-0   877   13
13.   Virginia Tech   0-1   782   10

Is the one of the WVU listings supposed to be Virginia Tech?

It does seem to be quite a task to come up with a top 25, especially this early in the season.

aMm. Good point. I fixed it now. To be honest, it's all a crap shoot at that point any way, especially this early in the season. I was just picking someone to go in at #25. I put NC there now. I know they lost to LSU, but if they get some of their starters back they will be a lot better.

I agree. I probably even have TCU too high in mine. Boise beat them last year and returns most of that team while TCU lost several defensive players, TCU should be much lower than Boise.

Sounds like what needs to happen is that some woopiggers are chosen for a woopig top 25 poll each week.  Same basic premise as AP poll, just better.

So, you're the one?

frick, and no.  Besides, that screenshot is from my Polish bootleg copy of Excel.  I've had it for 15 years and still can't figure out how to do formulas.  Reverse Polish Notation, indeed (MATH JOKE)

What I'd recommend, though, is a web page that has a drop down for all the teams, at least from the BCS conferences and then the major outside players.  That way you  put all the work onto the web server.

that's because you're of them femmes.  and, well, violent.

"I have seen women walk right past a TV set with a football game on and - this always amazes me - not stop to watch, even if the TV is showing replays of what we call a "good hit," which is a tackle that causes at least one major internal organ to actually fly out of a player's body." --Dave Barry

The great thing about bein a shoat is that people will helpfully point out when you're wrong and helpfully point out you're just a shoat when you're right, but they still love you for trying. or something like that.
