- The now-annual
analysis of rant about the FBS schedule.
- Intended Schedule Strength
- A brief look at the effects of conference schedules on overall SOS (and therefore rankings.)
- Relative Schedule Strength
- #50 playing #1 should count more for #50 than it would for #10, right? But #10 playing #1 should count more than #60 playing #51.
- Game-Interest formula for 2012
- I'm embarrassed not to have thought of this refinement of my variation on Potemkin sooner.
- Week 1 Week 2 Week 3
- Closely related is the "surprise factor" for games in which the worse-ranked team wins.
- Week 1 Week 2
- Addition to team pages
- Points below/above opponents' averages, with a nod to Bill James' baseball "smart stats"
- Visualizing the Games Graph
- 50+ years of connectivity data, courtesy of Dr. Massey. Fewer interconference games and more games against non-FBS opponents are bad ideas. But you've heard that before.
- 10 November Connectivity
- The games of Saturday, 10 November reduced the diameter of the games graph to 4, which is what it will be at the end of the season. Ratings should get better from here on.
- Pseudo-Smith Set
- Division 1's elite after 10 November's games.
- Computer Ratings Ranking Correlations
- How different (or alike) are different computer ratings?
- Adjusted Stats - part 1
- What would offensive and defensive stats look like without the cupcake games?
- Adjusted Stats - part 2
- Comparative stats - is that a good offense or a bunch of bad defenses?

- Second Order Winning Percentage (% of teams that the given team has a shorter or stronger A⇒... chain to other teams than the other way around.)
- Weighted by the length and strength of the A⇒ paths to opponents.
