WaB’s Thoughts on Conference Realignment

CAUSES

There has been lots of talk lately about possible conference realignment involving teams from almost every major conference in existence.  Unfortunately, I have been left without the benefit of the internet to help me with this post so you will truly be getting my completely uninformed speculation about what all is happening.  I have no inside information, but I like to think I’ve read enough articles to have some idea about what is going on.  There’s plenty of propaganda running around out there and tons of articles written with heavy bias so sifting through it all is not easy.  Plus, I’ve tried to set aside my own Missouri bias to see the facts; whether or not I’ve done a good job…well that’s for you to decide.

College Football Time!

Last year at this time, I was in St. Louis watching my Missouri Tigers win a shootout against Illinois and Weller was at home keeping you updated with some notes on the early action.   This year, the roles are reversed as I’m sitting in my living room waiting for the Tennessee-Western Kentucky game to start while Weller is at Neyland Stadium.  Apparently he already has a Lane Kiffin bobblehead, but I won’t steal all of his thunder.

We’ve already had a few games on Thursday night; both of them were bitterly disappointing.  I’m hoping the Oklahoma St.-Georgia game and the Virginia Tech-Alabama games will live up to the hype.  I’m going to take both SEC teams in those matchups.

Consolidated Preseason NCAA Football Rankings

I have compiled NCAA football preseason rankings from a wide range of sources. I’m linking to each one and then including a chart at the bottom showing the rankings side by side and then put in an average ranking for each team and also and adjusted average. The adjusted average only includes the rankings from sources that actually included the team in their rankings. Rivals and Sports Illustrated are the only two sources I used that ranked all 120 teams. I took the top 70 from each of those sources and came up with 75 schools. For the rankings that didn’t have a school included, I gave the excluded schools a default ranking for that source that would be the next highest rank. So if a source only ranked their top 25 then the other 50 teams on my list that weren’t included automatically got the ranking of 26. That way the fact that they would impact the averages in comparison to one another. If you have any questions please feel free to ask in the comments section below. Continue reading
