College Football According to Me <=> (example 2010 season)

  • This is my top twenty-five University Football rankings and with bowl match ups. No human-voting here, it's all by the numbers!
  • If there had been no human-voting in the BCS rankings, Michigan State would have been crowned Big Ten Champ. It's first week algebra. If M is greater than W and W is greater than O, then it proves that M is greater than O as well.
  • I want to see a four team playoff system, with one additional game for the National Championship. Here's how I rank the schools: Zero loss teams first, then one loss, two loss, etc. A school that doesn't win it's conference wouldn't be allowed to compete in the four-team playoff.
  • Any head to head games- and then 'Strength of that years schedule' sorts the rankings. Looking at the final won-loss combined percentage of defeated Bowl Subdivision opponents on that completed years schedule.
  • For example Auburn's defeated Bowl Subdivision opponents had a combined 86 wins and 60 losses, for a 589. percentage. This was certainly one of the toughest schedules. Missouri had the toughest schedule of the two-loss schools with a 572. percentage.
  • So this is my rankings and the bowls I would have put them in:
  • 1 Auburn - 4 Michigan St.
  • 2 Oregon - 3 TCU
  • The winners of the above would meet in the final Championship game.
  • With a four team playoff there would be no lingering questions from an undefeated team about who might be the best team in the nation.
  • 5 Nevada - 7 Wisconsin
  • 6 Boise St. - 8 Ohio St.
  • 9 Stanford - 10 Missouri
  • 11 Oklahoma - 12 Arkansas
  • 13 LSU - 14 Oklahoma St.
  • 15 Virginia Tech - 16 Utah
  • 17 Texas A&M - 19 Alabama
  • 18 Nebraska - 20 West Virginia
  • 21 Navy - 22 Hawaii
  • 23 Tulsa - 25 Northern Illinois
  • 24 UCF - 26 (best four-loss team)
  • and so on
  • The Bowls, on some kind of rotating basis could bid on which game they would want to host.
