Lost All Faith in Computer Rankings

Postby GatorInKnox » Sun Nov 25, 2012 11:22 pm

FSU wasn't ranked in one of the computer rankings last week. I'm not complaining there but to be honest they should've been. But then after losing to us they are ranked 23rd in the same ranking. I realize the computers have been kind to us this year but a team being ranked higher after getting demoralized at home shows some serious flaws.

The reason they're ranked in the computers now is because their strength of schedule was dramatically improved after playing us.

Yup. You got it.

Knox, not sure what is confusing here.

I understand that but losing the game that improves your SOS shouldn't be rewarded.

Their SOS was in the dumps till they played us. Win or lose.

It's all about how the different factors are calculated in the computer programs. SOS is one of the factors that has the most weight for many of the programs. Add it all up, and their overall standing improved because it was so weak before playing us. They should be thanking us, and jimbo should never open his mouth about the computer rankings again.

If anyone can look at their computer screen with a straight face and say yea they should be ranked higher in a computer ranking after getting curb stomped at home then OK I'm never going to win this argument

FWIW they dropped down on the average computer ranking (that actually counts) so most of them got it right.

They weren't rewarded. They dropped 2 spots to #12.

I put a tremendous amount of faith in SOS. Yesterday was a perfect example of why it is so important.

Look at my face... It's straight.

And we didn't curb stomp them. We beat them.

As do I. But I feel like you should have to win your game to move up in the rankings, not lose emphatically. Again, only one of the services moved them up after losing, and it shouldn't be used again next year.

You didn't provide any links to what the hell you're talking about. Maybe that would help. :rolleyes: Chief.

Knox, I love you man, I do.

I'm not sure where the confusion is. A computer uses wins/loses. We had the best record they played all year. 11-1. Of course after playing us, their SOS would go up.

The term Chief is used for Indians or Semiholes. :lol:
