Preseason FPI is BS. Math modeling of expected outcomes, based on no real scientific input conditions, is rubbish. Its mostly subjective cloaked in a shroud of legitimacy. If you want to believe in the ranking outcome, go for it. Look at last year's preseason predicts to actual end of season for the top 10. Bottom line, it's a starting point. The season will make the difference, like it always does.

I have no problem with statistical analysis and trending, but ESPN using subjective recruiting rankings for "objective" statistical analysis is just silly. Use pure statistics and then apply weights and see which pans out closer to reality at the end of the season.

There is no way they can figure out how many fumbles or INTs will be in a game. There is no way they can figure out who will have an injury going into any game. I'm all in with the rankings being total B-S, and is as inaccurate as saying when a battery will go out on a watch. They just don't know, plain and simple B-S garbage. That's like predicting how long a new born will live!!!!

Actually that is easy with the average lifespan being 78 and increasing at about 2 years each decade. Law of averages rules the day, but if your baseline is flawed then yes the output is worthless.

Still can't believe 31- 0 hio state gets this much love after we exposed them in the Fiesta Bowl.

Spot on. My thoughts exactly...and they only play weak Big10 opponents on top of that.

Connelly's 2017 S&P+ projections. https://www.sbnation.com/college-football/2017/2/3/14496224/2017-college-football-rankings-projections

You just have to take these things for what they are as it's obviously an inexact science. However, I bet if you put these side by side with the projections of internet fans on these sites that complain about them, the FPI and S&P+ would be more accurate.

How do teams move around when no one plays a game?

This is nonsense.


I know - maybe we should ask ESPN's ....
