    UCF and SOS in the same sentence should be enough to make you laugh, no?

    UCF's 2018 opponent's records:

    1-11
    5-6
    2-9
    5-7
    7-7
    5-7
    8-6
    3-9
    8-5
    3-10
    11-2

    SOS = when you only play 3 teams with a winning record, people are going to LOL at your 12-0 record.

    For comparison, Michigan played 7 teams who finished with a winning record. Only 1 team that finished with fewer than 5 wins (Nebraska). UCF played 4 teams who finished with fewer than 5 wins.

    When it comes to SOS, all that really matters is not having one of the worst. As long as you're in the top like 70, it doesn't get talked about as much.

    After 4 days, only 9 posts. And nobody has attempted to explain SOS.

    It's a BS stat. Everyone who understands Math knows its a BS stat.

    You can't teach a blind man what the color blue looks like.

    People will just keep walking and discuss the color of things among themselves.

    Why is @UCFhonors so triggered by this widely used number. It’s as if he is trying to make excuses on his teams’ weakness as being based on something he doesn’t quite understand.

    With beauty contests methods like polls and committees, SOS is typically how difficult a team's schedule is as a matter of opinion. With actual rules, SOS is the value of your schedule based on your opponents' accomplishments according to whatever factual criteria is used.
