    Computer Rankings - 11/20/11

    Thought it would be interesting to take a look at each individual computer ranking as they were made available (keep in mind some don't become available until Monday). I personally enjoy the idea of computer ratings as they have unbiased opinions based upon week-to-week results and fictional opinions.


    Sagarin Ratings

    1) LSU
    2) Alabama
    3) Oklahoma State
    4) Arkansas
    5) Kansas State
    6) Oklahoma
    7) Baylor
    8) South Carolina
    9) Oregon
    10) Boise State

    12) Texas A&M
    16) Missouri
    17) Texas
    20) Iowa State
    30) Texas Tech
    38) Iowa
    65) Kansas

    Re: Computer Rankings - 11/20/11

    This is why I think OSU still has a shot at the title game. The computers love the Big 12 and as long as enough of the human voters balk at an all-SEC championship OSU is still in play.

    That is because you are looking at the wrong column, the computer ratings that are used by the BCS bowl system are the ones in the red, under ELO_CHESS.

    the BCS computer rankings cannot use margin of victory.

    20 is what sagarin has us in his ranking for the BCS computers.

    29 is what we are in his overall ranking that takes margin of victory into account.

    actually he has us at 49th. 29 is the average between rating using margin of victory and not using it.

    i can't believe Kansas St doesn't get more respect from the human polls (15th in both). they are kicking *** in the computers (5th)

    Agreed, their average computer rank is 5.7 (5-5-5-5-5-9) and in the BCS thread I noted that the human polls appear to have a bias of 5.3 positions when compared to the computers.

    Still awaiting the Massey Ratings to finish up the entire computer rankings and get a finalized computer average but it would appear it is safe to say in the eyes of the computers the Big 12 has eight teams in the Top 30.
