    Sagarin ELO_CHESS ISU #31, UNI #62, Iowa #81

    Sagarin ELO_CHESS ISU #31, UNI #62, Iowa #81

    Only taking into account the quality of wins and losses, we're #31 in Sagarin's formula that is used for the BCS computer component.

    We are 55 in the predictor that tries to judge final score outcome and 45 in the combined overall Sagarin ranking.

    Our SOS is up to 7 and the teams we have left to play are ranked 92, 3, 4, 18.

    There's a very good chance our SOS could be top 3 after those final three games.

    *interesting unrelated note, for the Boise State haters. Sagarin has Boise State's schedule ranked as tougher so far than Alabama, Stanford, South Carolina, Oregon, Nebraska, Arkansas, Wisconsin, Clemson and Michigan. Basically they're schedule strength is in the top half of the top 20 teams. Really stupid for people to criticize who they've played through 8 games compared to the cupcakes some other teams have padded their win total with.

    If I was BSU I wouldn't use BIG teams for their SOS comparison argument. # weaksauce

    Iowa is dragging down our SOS. Why do we play that game?

    Boise State's schedule is extremely front loaded and wil do nothing but get easier while everyone who plays in a real conference (ie not the MWC or B1G) will see their SOS get better.

    SOS doesn't matter unless we are actually in a position of being able to play in a BCS game.

    When it allows me to be snarky at Iowa's expense it sure as hell matters to me.

    No kidding. It's a lose lose situation. When we beat them its because we're supposed to. But, when we lose to them, all hell breaks loose.
