• Hello Guest. We are upgrading the server's XenForo versions. This has to be done in stages. 1.5.18 ---> 1.5.23 ---> 2.0.0 ---> 2.0.12 ---> 2.1.0. I will likely upgrade each one and leave it for a day or so to see if there's any kinks. When moving from 1.x to 2.x, our add-ons will cease to work. Much of the functionality of said add-ons is now native within XenForo 2.x, so I don't think we'll miss much if anything. IF we are, we can try out new 2.x XF add-ons.

I don't know why nobody told you
How to unfold your love
I don't know how someone controlled you
They bought and sold you

C/P from the UCF board...

Using the six BCS computer rankings, I have compiled the average rankings of all 10 FBS conferences and made some initial analyses.

Overall by average computer rankings:

1. XII - 42.3
2. SEC - 47.3
3. B1G - 47.8
4. PAC - 49.5
5. ACC - 58.0
6. AAC - 58.4
7. MWC - 72.9
8. SBC - 81.1
9. CUSA - 91.6
10. MAC - 96.4

As you can see, the American is a whisker behind the ACC for the overall average. The AAC actually ranked better than the ACC in 4 of the 6 BCS computers (Anderson & Hester, Colley, Massey, and Wolfe), but because the difference was large in the Sagarin (7.1 points) and Billingsley (3.9 points), compared to the other 4 (3.5 points - Wolfe, 2.7 points - Colley, 2.1 points - A&H, 0.4 points - Massey), the overall average skewed to the ACC.

You can also see just how big a gap there is between the AAC and the rest of the Non-A5. The AAC is closer to second than they are to seventh.

I also looked at the average ranking of the top 5 teams in each conference:

1. SEC - 9.2
2. B1G - 9.7
3. XII - 20.1
4. AAC - 21.0
5. PAC - 25.2
6. ACC - 31.9
7. MWC - 37.9
8. SBC - 53.8
9. CUSA - 58.3
10. MAC - 79.7

As you can see, the AAC is fourth overall in the rankings of the top 5 teams from each conference, and closer to third than to fifth. And yes, the MAC is really that bad. The top-ranked MAC team in the Billingsley rankings is 80th, and the top-ranked team in the Massey rankings is 81st. The best the MAC could do in any of the six computers was 51st.

I also looked at the average number of teams each conference had in the top 50.

1. SEC - 7.3
2. B1G - 6.7
3. XII - 5.7
4. PAC - 5.5
5. AAC - 4.8
6. ACC - 4.3
7. MWC - 3.2
8. SBC - 1.7
9. CUSA - 1.2
10. MAC - 0

Again, the AAC finished ahead of the ACC.

And the top 25

1. B1G - 6.0
2. SEC - 5.3
3. XII - 3.2
tie AAC - 3.2
5. PAC - 3
6. MWC - 1.3
7. ACC - 1
tie. SBC - 1
9. CUSA - 0
tie MAC - 0

Again, the AAC finished above the ACC and the PAC this time, too.

Yearly reminder that a conference championship game for a league with round robin play is the dumbest thing ever. Thanks, Big 12!
I still don't understand why other major conferences allowed the Big XII to have a CCG. Why allow them to get extra money with fewer teams? When I heard the Big XII was going to ask for it, I thought there was no way it would pass. Perhaps someone smarter than I can explain why they allowed it?
