Clemson ranked #16th in Implied SRS Ratings

Grady Jarrett will be back to anchor Clemson's defensive line.

Footballperspective.com released its implied SRS ratings of College Football teams in 2014.

Clemson was ranked #16th on the list. Florida State, Alabama and Oregon rounded out the top three ranking.

For the worst ranked schools (64-77) - Virginia, North Carolina State, Boston College and Wake Forest were all included.

You might ask yourself, (as I did) how do they come up with the 'implied SRS ratings'?

I took the point spread for each game and turned it into a margin of victory, after assigning 3 points to the road team in each game. For example, Alabama is a 6-point home favorite against Auburn. So for that game, we assume Vegas believes the Tide are three points better than the Tigers; if we do this for each of the other 199 games, and then iterate the results hundreds of times, we can come up with a set of power ratings.
