    1. After CCG's, the season is over and below are the ELO rankings and strength of schedules. A little point of pride is that these rankings went 9/10 (with Rice) in predicting conference championships. Also interesting is that Purdue is the lowest rated number 1 team since 2013 via this model (every other year was between 1230 and 1260). Maybe this will eventually be good enough to get me a vote in the official poll but until then, enjoy. Also forthcoming will be bowl predictions, although it should be pretty easy, if you're ranked higher you should win.

      2021 Season ELO Ratings

      Also, should have had it ready to go right away, but here are the CCG projections. Most of these teams are within only a few places in the rankings which is why they show as such toss-ups. CUSA - Rice (70.8%) MAC - WMU (54.4%) Fun Belt - UL-Lafayette (50.2%) PAC - Utah (56.9%) AAC - Navy (55.1%) ACC - Duke (53.6%) SEC - Auburn (52.5%) BIG 12 - TCU (52.5%) MWC - Air Force (56%) B1G - Purdue (53.7%)

      2021 Season ELO Ratings

      Apparently winning a game is better than not winning, who knew ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
    5. I spent a little bit of time learning VBA, reading up on ranking methodologies, and put this together. The idea is that comparing two teams rankings gives you the expected winning percentage: EXP = 1/(1+10diff/400). For example, a 200 point difference corresponds to the higher rank team having a 76% win expectancy. Basically, if you beat a team by more than expected then your rating goes up. Below is the full table including strength of schedule (average elo of opponents). Overall, throughout the season the higher ranked team won 81% of the time (or 90% if you only include games where there was > 55% winning chance). For better viewing: here is a google sheet link which contains these rankings for every year 2013-2021 including a "continued" version where end-of-season rankings are used to start the next year (regressed 25% of the way back to 1000).

      New York Giants Staffing Announcement

      Perhaps that is in the cards for the future, but for now I'm grateful to @Hagan @deandean1998 And the NY Giants organization for giving me the opportunity to learn the ropes and get a sense of the current state of NFLHC before diving all the way in
    8. Uh is this really a major at UGA?

      [2022] CFBHC Schedule - Game Registration

      Week 1 - Vs. Rice Week 2 - Vs. Western Kentucky Week 3 - At Louisiana Lafayette Week 7 - At Old Dominion
    11. Last Week Recap Bowl-eligible! Last week Eastern Michigan knocked off rival Central Michigan to claim their 6th straight win and punch their ticket to the postseason. This is already their best season since going 11-2 and beating Boise State in the Boca Raton bowl in 2017. The road here started off rocky with a few blowout losses in the OOC schedule, but after losing to conference powers WMU and Toledo, EMU was able to turn it around and show that they aren’t to be taken lightly. The game against Central Michigan was emblematic of how these wins have come. It was the 3rd of the 6 wins to occur on a cold rainy night in Ypsilanti, perhaps a bit of a psychological advantage over teams not as used to these conditions. Despite their offensive line injuries, the DL for EMU must be playing well as all 6 opponents had an offensive line rating well under their season average. Despite the season turnover margin being +11 for CMU and -4 for EMU, the eagles were able to win the turnover battle this week thanks to an uncharacteristic fumble by CMU QB Byron Suggs and a late interception to snuff out the comeback attempt. EMU’s Giovanni Shaw continues to be the model of consistency since the midseason scheme change as all 6 games he has 250-300 yards, >66% completion percentage, and more TDs than INTs. RB Chris Morton did enough (14 carries for 90 yards and 1 td) to keep the defense honest and allow EMU to tire them out. Next up is the season finale against Miami (OH). Miami had a strong start to the season, but has faltered recently, dropping contests to Buffalo, Ball State, and Central Michigan and currently sits at 6-4 on the season. My current ELO rankings (look out for a full post with these upcoming!) have EMU at 59 and Miami at 98 so the expectation is that EMU has the capability to win this game especially playing at home. Miami Offense vs. EMU Defense Miami’s offense is currently in flux, with head coach @caesari having left several weeks ago to take the opening at Nebraska. As such, it is a little unknown how they are going to approach this matchup but we can still examine what has worked this season. So far, Miami has shown themselves to be an offensive-line driven program, with the clear 3rd best unit in the conference, although they have taken a hit in recent weeks as a season-ending Achilles rupture has sidelined starting OG Xavier Bridges. Even with his replacement, they are still an above-average group, all pass-blocking specialists adept at giving QB Zack Cera enough time to find his target. This formula has been wildly successful thus far as Cera leads the MAC with 3111 yards and a whopping 31 TDs. They seem to enjoy stretching the field as he has a fairly low completion percentage and seems to favor speed WR Kenneth Harrison before targeting TE Casey Swann in the red zone (11 TDs!). Overall, this is an explosive, high-scoring offense, used to having their way with opponents and putting points up on the board. To counter this, EMU has to choose whether to engage in a shootout or slow the game down and hope to win the special teams and turnover battles. The two teams have similar average pacing with roughly the same number of plays/game, however it seems the smart decision is to keep Miami’s strength off the field as much as possible. An aggressive defense, aiming to get a quick stop/ turnover or bust followed by a slow, grind-it-out offense should hopefully tire out Miami’s defense and any mistakes could be the end. EMU Offense vs. Miami Defense Defensively, Miami is solid, though not quite so skilled as their offense. With a mix of seniors and freshmen, the defensive front is merely average at getting to the opposing QB. In addition, with only 5 INTs on the season, the backfield is not particularly special either. Overall, this is a fairly average unit, which varies from mediocre to stout depending on the performance of their freshmen which is quite variable. This should prove to be an advantage for EMU as the standard bad weather and an energized fan base should support the more seasoned offense to at least a fair performance. Special Teams To reiterate, EMU has great special teams led by star kicker Simon Hand who is 22 for 23 on the season and a passable return game. In contrast, Miami’s K is 11 for 14 and they have one of the worst return teams in the conference. For those hardcore special teams fans however, they may get a kick out of watching Miami’s freshman longsnapper Cameron Cox. While his efforts may not show up on a stat sheet, he was rated a 5 star in high school and if you like watching a guy spin things between his legs well, this is your chance Overall Miami is a good team, they perform well and have good players. Sadly they also no longer have a coach and after performing below expectations in several other games this season the expectation is that they have a listless outing this week as well. You never know what surprises might occur, but taking the momentum and season trajectories of these two teams into account, it seems like EMU can pull off another win to cap what will be an astounding season either way. Final prediction: EMU over Miami(OH) 31-27

      [2021] MAC Recruiting Results

      10/10 great work on this breakdown. I was V confused about the recruiting situation when I took over. Too late to get in on any serious targets (right?) and like 24 recruits already signed who were pretty low. Hopefully this means that for the next ~2 years I don't have to even bother recruiting 3.0 potentials.

    14. Not 100% fleshed out ideas but: Statistical leaders in categories: high risk high reward? If you know your conference play style is amenable but still pretty variable Air Raid Have a team from the conference lead the nation in passing ypg, or alternatively, have the highest conference avg? Ground and Pound Same thing but with rushing G-5 likely choices Upset a P5 team in your home state (Ex. EMU beats Michigan or Michigan State). Maybe relies a bit too much on scheduling Diamonds in the rough - recruit the highest number of "athletes" or have the highest number of players start out of position (DT as FB, etc..) Other ideas: Must-Watch TV: Have the highest number of ranked matchups played WRTS - sign the highest number of players (or most overall stars) from the state of Texas (or alternatively California) Fly-bys - Have the greatest number of states represented in the conference recruiting class QB Cradle - have the highest number of QBs in the 1st round, or the first overall QB drafted. Hefty Hefty Hefty - Have the heaviest class by weight Have the highest OOC winning percentage Have the highest percentage of teams qualify for bowl games
