    Jon Miller fact-checking

    Just watched Thurs night's channel 13 news and they had Jon Miller talking about Saturday's Iowa-Mich. game. He stated that Iowa has the 66th ranked strength of schedule. Where is he getting that number? Sagarin puts their schedule at #105.

    Sagarin college football rankings by conference

    Has he just arbitrarily upgraded their schedule from one of the easiest in division 1 to an average strength?

    Re: Jon Miller fact-checking

    105 I'm guessing is season to date and 66 is entire season.

    Why are you watching yesterdays news?

    Deep from his ***.
    There's no way Iowa's schedule is that high on anybody's rankings.

    They teased a story I wanted to see about Iowans writing smart phone apps. Anywho, where are these schedule stats for the season? I imagine ISU's schedule is in the top 5?

    I doubt ISU's is that high. Iowa and UCONN have drug us down.

    Currently ISU's SoS is #7 in the nation with Kansas (92), OSU (3), OU (4), and KSU (18) yet to play. We will easily have a top 5 schedule when the season is done even with Kansas bringing us down.

    Here's the link again.

    Sagarin does not provide projected season ending SOS, but some others do.

    66th reflects what most of those project for a season ending SOS. Remember, there are only 65 BCS teams, so 66th is quite embarassing.

    I can't find anybody that has Iowa's current SOS as high as 66th.

    Joan only uses facts if they support his hawks, otherwise he roams freely with numbers

    Miller is a fake. I understand he trys to come on here and talk like a nice guy, but he hates our guts. He hates the Cyclones and everything to do with them. It is what it is.

    I agree. Miller is a fraud. Seems he can't pee without Steve Deace to prop him up.

    Holy flipping gosh darn crap, that is black and white proof for the hawkhomers that the big 12 is a tougher conference. Big 12 has 3 teams with SOS outside the top 10. Big 10 has none in the top 10. I already can't believe I still have to have that argument over here, but I may have to print this and carry it with me.

    Clones21....comment about Miller "coming on here"...what's his ID? (not questioning you, I just didn't know he's on here)

    It's JonDMiller, and his avatar is a cartoon black spider with a smiley face.
