The Analytics Suggest Tamping Down the Hype on Houston


(Dave) #1

In my old neighborhood in the days of my yewt … we use to say the fella is trying to make a point …

THE HARD WAY …

Over a few weeks, I conducted a comparative analysis using four preseason college football publications – Athlon Sports, Lindy’s, Phil Steele, and The Sporting News – to develop a consensus top 25 among The Gurus. I then compared those composite rankings with four advanced metrics systems released by The Geeks (Fremeau’s FEI, ESPN’s FPI, Connelly’s S&P+, and Feng’s The Power Rank).

Uhhh … why doesn’t he just state that he doesn’t like us and thinks we were lucky …

It would have saved his reading FOUR magazines and attempting to quantify it against some advanced metric systems.

But hey in South Bend its called … “the luck of the irish” … metric systems … schmetric systems … :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:

MY APOLOGIES … I somehow created a duplicate new topic posting … and am still not certain how to delete it from the board.
