Well, I’m Kinda Close to the BCS

But not quite there. Which is good; I’ll take it!

The BCS has come out today, with the top 5 teams comprised of the following:

  1. Ohio State
  2. South Florida
  3. Boston College
  4. LSU
  5. Oklahoma

And again, my top 5:

  1. South Florida
  2. LSU
  3. Arizona State
  4. Kentucky
  5. Oregon

They don’t really agree on much.  But after some number crunching, my rankings are an average of 4 spots different than the BCS.  I want that lower, but it’s not bad.  As I’ve said all along, the point of my rankings are to figure out if computers can actually determine the top 2 teams at the end of the year.  The more data there is, the more accurate the rankings will be.  It could still be completely wrong, but it’s too early to tell.  We’ll find out at the end of the year.

  1. Well there’s definitely something wrong with that formula. Arizona State is not a top 5 team, a top 10 team and maybe not even a top 25 team. Hard to disagree with the rest of the top 5, however.
