You wanna know why Coach O is so great?
Here's a little glimpse into this man.
2008 - my team was 0-10.
Little school of 170 kids.
South Orange County, California.
He called me when he was recruiting the area.
(NO idea how he got my cell phone, I asked, he said I have my ways.)
I said "Coach, thank you for calling, but you don't have to come by. We have nobody for you. We had an awful year, we just don't have the kids that you would use at USC."
He says "That don't matter Coach, ONE day, you might."
I tried to explain again that he had a lot to do.
I again thanked him for calling, I told him that I would contact him if we do have someone.
We exchanged pleasantries, and I went about my day as an Athletic Director.
15 minutes later the front desk lady calls.
A college coach is here for you.
I went out to the front.

Version 3 of the #CFBPlayoff rankings were released last night. What you expected? If youve followed along since early Oct you know the process. You werent surprised. For the rest of you, lets take a look & compare to what was projected using the same process used for 5 yrs.
First off, why does the committee use this process? Think about it. 14 busy guys make up this committee. They have roughly 60 hrs from when the last game ends on Sat to when they need to have this Top 25 created on Tues. If they evaluate only 30 teams to get that 25, how much
time is adequate to evaulate? 1 hr? Thats 30 hrs of evaluation. Half the time is gone & no one has slept. The process of getting a consensus out of 14 people hasnt even started. Thats why this process is kept so simple, & its why they have a defined predictable process.

Interesting thought here: according to our data, the higher ranked team has won roughly 72% of the time over the last decade in the #SEC. That's down from 80% in a study about 5 years ago.

Since expansion (2012) each team has played 56 conference games, and only 5 are above 500.
That's 392 games over 7 seasons, meaning roughly 110 times a lesser ranked team defeated a "more talented" opponent.

Obviously all 5 of Bama's losses are to "less talented" teams, bc they're a top 2 recruiter. The next highest talent recruiter is #UGA, who has lost just 15 times
In the last 7 seasons. Of those 15, every loss except once to #Alabama is a loss to a "less talented" team. So right away, 17% of the "upset losses" are held by the top two recruiters in SEC, bc nearly everyone they play is "less talented" than they are any given Saturday
