2016 Final Conference Rankings

22 Feb

The bowl season either wrecked havoc on the standings, or it settled the conferences in their appropriate ranking.  I suppose it depends on how your conference did in the rankings, when it comes to how you look at these final results.

Three conferences fell in the rankings – none more dramatic than the Big 10, which suffered through a terrible bowl season losing seven games.  The American and Mid-American Conferences also suffered, as did the SEC.  The SEC’s climb in the ranking was due to the decline of the Big 10 over that of the SEC’s on-field performance.

The Big 12 was able to climb into the top five based on their impressive bowl performance and the failure of the American Conference.

The big news in the ACC dominated the bowl season which led to a relatively huge margin of victory in the conference standings.  They finished with a victory margin over three tenths higher, which is a huge margin in these rankings that are all based on on-field performance.

How did your conference do?

2016 Conference Rankings Week Four

6 Nov

The American Conference continues to shine, the Big 12 puts some distance between themselves and the Mt. West and Conference USA falls to last place as the Sun Belt Conference overtakes them.  Oh yes, and the SEC takes back what has been there’s for the last several year – the top spot among the conferences.

2016 Week Two Conference

16 Sep

This week some things shook out.  The two most notable things is the SEC isn’t as down as feared and the Big 12 is down way more than anyone thought.  Also, notice that the American, formerly Big East, Conference is more than holding its own.  Suddenly, the Power 5 doesn’t appear to be all that powerful.

2016 Week Two

  1. ACC = 1.181
  2. SEC = 1.136
  3. Big 10 = 1.074

  8. C-USA = -086
  9. MAC = -.130
  10. Sun Belt = -.200

 

Week One 2016

2016 Week One Conference Rankings

10 Sep

After what has been called the best opening week lineup of games in college football history, because of all the big matchups, how did your conference fair once the dust settled?  Some talking heads questioned the reputation of the SEC, which has been well earned according to these non-biased rankings.  (Personally, I’m not a fan of the SEC, but since these rankings are based on on-field results, I can’t fudge the numbers either way.)  So where did your conference rank?

Week One 2016

  1.   Big 10 = 1.357
  2.   ACC = 1.333
  3.   American = .846
  4.   Big 12 = .500
  5.   SEC = .500
  6.   Pac 12 = .416
  7.   C-USA = .400
  8.   MWC = .384
  9.   MAC = -.083
  10.   Sun Belt = -.090
