Power Ratings Rule
NOVEMBER, 2018 -- When last week’s updated College Football Playoff rankings were released, I was curious how they’d compare with a well-crafted set of College Football power ratings (which, as you know, are the foundation for pointspreads, and contain all math, no human judgment or manipulation). The ones I used were the publicly available ratings at Sagarin.com. The CFP Rankings do not include polls. They are made by people on a selection committee, which allegedly makes evaluations based on the ol’ tried-and-true “numerous factors that we look at.” Whatever. I would have figured that they base it on how much they are paid off the books by ESPN, but what do I know? Two months out, I’m not interested in who will be in the College Football Playoff. When they get to that point, let me know who’s playing who, and what the Line and Total are. Then, I’ll care. But at least the CFP rankings are not comprised by Associated Press and Coaches Polls, allegedly. When the former system, the BCS, was ruling college football post-season protocol, those things were used to come up with rankings. Ugh. Having a 13-person committee of clowns is probably preferable than basing a post-season system on the votes made by 65 broadcasting and sportswriting trivia turkeys who cover a sport they don’t understand, and whose judgment is distracted by their obsession with “this team, just beat a ranked opponent, in November, for the first time… since 2016!.” The fewer dopes with that kind of perspective, the better, right? It’s also probably better than anything that can be cooked up by the 130 borderline psychotics coaching FBS-level football programs. But enough of my sarcastic critique of a tiresome tradition.
