    Re: Steele ranks ISU's SOS at #6

    All they are using is opponent win %. So location has nothing to do with it and a small but good school will actually increase the strength

    Good point. Serves me right for just glancing at it and not actually reading through it!

    That would tend to scew things a bit. But then again all preseason SOS rankings are 70% 'Blamo' anyway.


    "Blamo"! The new CF approved swear word.

    It's actually #2. You need to scroll down (and maybe edit your thread title? )

    #6 is our opponents winning percentage, not the total strength (which takes home/away etc. in to account).

    According to that it looks like Iowa and Wisconsin have the easiest schedules of any team in the Big 10, Pac 10, Big 12, ACC, or SEC.

    Well... playing in the Big Ten certainly makes the schedule a bit easier.
