Of course they could. I said no to "are NO FCS teams capable of beating the worst FBS team?"
late to the contest, but SOS is a tool used to ensure SEC teams are ranked in the top 10.
what do i win?
So how would you factor a win over North Dakota State as opposed to Incarnate Word? Both are FCS but obviously not created equal. This is why the FCS debate gets old. There are certain times where teams are getting bashed for playin FCS teams who are better than a large portion of the non-aq teams.
It involves math, so I wouldn't expect a Floridian to understand it all that much.
I don't have a good idea for how to weigh FCS games. I don't expect it to happen but I wish these games were eliminated. I don't believe these games exist for competitive purposes even when comparing North Dakota State to other FCS teams. The Bison may be the exception but I don't think anyone schedules an FCS over an FBS team or another FCS because it offers a greater challenge even if that happens to be true.
I would say give those games a 0 score
For the time being, I either don't count them or treat them as the worst FBS team.
This is what I did. Unless they lost, then it was -100, the worse possible score. And I treated them as bye weeks.
Outside that, the game should be ignored and have no bearing on the power of a team or any other measurements because the data just isn't relevant.
Ask DR. He will be happy to point to how playing 2 FCS teams per year is a top tier SOS schedule
True but today right now they are LSU's bitch.
And if they are LSU’s, just imagine what Bama would be doing to them.
LOL especially since LSU was so injured they were dressing out equipment managers, waterboys and male cheerleaders.
your field results have been determining that!
you haven't deserved to be in a playoff
and yet, the lsu - ucf game just proves the futility of trying to use this ranking system as the lower ranked team dominated the higher ranked one
The results of the LSU-UCF game don’t invalidate his system any more than the results of the Auburn-UCF game validated it. I’d have no problem if the committee used it as part of their evaluation process, but neither it nor any other “objective” system will ever be the sole selector for the playoff. As he said, all conferences are not equally difficult, and for a simple mathematical formula to work they would need to be at least close. In his system, assigning no points or points equal to the worst FBS team for FCS games assumes that all FCS teams are worse than the worst FBS, and we know that’s not true either. If the playoff had 8 or more slots, it might work, but for 4? Nope.
The biggest reason that his system won’t ever be used to select the playoff teams is that the playoff is a creation of the P5 conferences, and they damn sure aren’t going to use a system that assumes that the AAC and Sunbelt are equal to the P5s. They aren’t owed access to the playoff, no matter how much they whine about how unfair it is. As somebody once said, you didn’t build that. If they want their own championship playoff, have at it.
And the P5 would love it if they did because they no longer need to give a piece of the playoff pie to the the MidMajors and they don’t have to have an autobid for the NY6 bowls either.
LOL @ using baseball as a comparison
You can't fix stupid.
Just to be clear, I wouldn't support treating FCS games that way in the real world. BTW, if G5 teams are not owed playoff access, why don't P5 leagues adopt an objective system and just give themselves a head start?
