    Recruiting Classes vs Winning Percentage

    This might be more relevant, they also averaged each conferences recruiting ranking and winning % ranking out and concluded this: Recruiting Ranking Winning % Ranking SEC Avg. 19.14 (1st) Avg. 28.69 (1st) Pac 12 Avg. 34 (2nd) Avg. 35.54 (4th) Big 12 Avg. 37.25 (3rd) Avg. 31.1 (2nd) Big 10 Avg. 38.29 (4th) Avg. 34.54 (3rd) ACC Avg. 39.29 (5th) Avg. 36.32 (5th) This makes it look like the Pac 12 is the conference that is really not getting the maximum out of their recruits.

    I told them that I thought it would be better if they could just use the non-conference games to see winning percentage vs recruiting rankings. However, you would also get in to how strong teams non-conference schedules are compared to other conferences.

    Recruiting Classes vs Winning Percentage

    They also concluded this about the conferences: The Big 12 ranked #1 because they averaged being up 6.8 spots The Big 10 ranked #2 by averaging being up 4.65 spots The ACC ranked #3 by averaging being up 2.82 spots The Pac-12 ranked #4 by averaging being down 2.5 spots The SEC ranked #5 by averaging being down 10.71 spots The Big 12 seems to get the most out of their recruits as a conference and the SEC seems to get the least out of their recruits by far as a conference. I don't know if it has to do with coaching, or if the recruit ranking system is flawed a little. Maybe a little bit of both.

    Recruiting Classes vs Winning Percentage

    There are definitely some teams that achieve at a much higher percentage than they should compared to their recruiting rank such as Wisconsin. I found it interesting that the SEC is all down, with the exception of Alabama.
  5. I am a high school math teacher and I had two of my stats kids do a project that focused on compiling data and using averages to make comparisons. They chose to use college football recruiting over the last 10 years, not counting this year since it's not done yet. They used 247 Sports and Rivals to average out the recruiting classes rank and then they figured out the winning percentage of all the teams over the last 10 years. They wanted to see if there was a correlation between the two. They ranked the 64 teams from the power 5 conferences and Notre Dame from 1-65 in recruiting and 1-65 in winning percentage. It was interesting to see which teams seem to be performing a lot higher than their recruiting rank and a lot lower. For the difference category, they put whether the team performed better or worse compared to their recruiting ranking. For example: Illinois ranked 55th in recruiting over the last ten years combined, but their winning percentage ranks 62nd so they are down 7 spots from where they should have been. Please let me know what you think of their findings and I will pass your comments on to them. Thanks Team Recruiting Avg.

    Bracketology 2019

    Here's the way I look at the remaining 15 games, and this is obviously just my opinion. The next 5 games are @Indiana, vs Michigan State, @Rutgers, vs Ohio State and vs Wisconsin. I feel like we need to win 3 out of 5 here. There is no way we are winning against Michigan State in my opinion so we need to win 3 out of the other 4. The next 5 games after that are @Illinois, vs Maryland, @Purdue, vs Minnesota and vs Northwestern. I feel like we need to win 4 our of this 5 since we have 3 home games and we go to Illinois. The last 5 games are @Penn State, vs Purdue, @Michigan, @Michigan State and vs Iowa. I think we need to win 3 out of 5 here with obvious losses @Michigan and @Michigan State. That would leave our record at 22-9 going in to the conference tournament. If we could win a couple of games in the tournament I think we have a good chance of making it in. The way we look lately though, I'm not sure if everything is possible that I laid out.
  7. Voted, good luck to you!

    *** 2019 Recruiting ***

    We have 22 commits right now. How many of them are planning on signing next week? Does anyone have any idea, or are we going to have to wait and see? I know that not all of them are planning on enrolling right away, but I hope they all sign at least.

    B1G to Target Texas, Oklahoma when Big XII GOR Expires

    I have no idea if conferences are going to try to get to 16, but if they all do here is what I would like to see. The Big 12 would definitely be the worst conference overall in this scenario and I only added Oklahoma State to us because then it helps us get Oklahoma in my opinion. Big 10: Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Michigan State, Minnesota, Nebraska, Northwestern, Ohio State, Penn State, Purdue, Wisconsin, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Notre Dame and Kansas. Bold teams would be in the West division and you could pod from there. SEC: Alabama, Arkansas, Auburn, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, LSU, Ole Miss, Mississippi State, Tennessee, Vanderbilt, South Carolina, Missouri, Texas A&M, UCF and South Florida. The last two were added because they would need to be two teams that joined a power 5 conference possibly and they are located in a good area to join the SEC. Bold teams would be West division. ACC: Boston College, Clemson, Duke, Florida State, Miami, NC State, North Carolina, Pitt, Syracuse, Virginia, Virginia Tech, Wake Forest, Louisville, Georgia Tech, Maryland and Rutgers. Maryland and Rutgers would work for the ACC and might fit ok. Bold teams would be one division. Pac 12: Arizona, Arizona State, California, Oregon, Oregon State, Stanford, UCLA, USC, Utah, Washington, Washington State, Colorado, Boise State, San Diego State, Fresno State and Nevada. The last 4 would have to be added and I think they would be the best fit for where they are. Bold teams would be North division. Big 12: Baylor, Iowa State, Kansas State, TCU, Texas Tech, Texas, West Virginia, Houston, Colorado State, Northern Illinois, Cincinnati, Memphis, App. State, SMU, BYU and Temple. This was the toughest conference to figure out and add teams to. I could see a North and South division here with the teams in bold being the North. This is obviously just my opinion and I was messing around with the teams quite a bit. The teams that I added could obviously be switched out for other teams.
  10. They also have 4 more non-conference games. Let's say they go 3-1 with those. 7 wins currently + 12 that you mentioned above + 3 that I mentioned would be a record of 22-9. Then you have to see what we would do in the B1G tournament. I would hope that would get us in, but it would all depend on who all we would beat. Edit: My math is slightly off. I think that would be 23-8.

    I agree, I feel like we are spending way too much as a country in a lot of areas. I am just of the mindset that I don't want to add another area where we would have to spend more taxes. If we could find a way to get these funds without raising taxes, then by all means lets get it done. You might open up a whole deal with many other areas though that would look to get government funding as well.

    There are always places that you can cut taxes. This is never going to change. It all comes down to priorities, but where does it stop? What if we all were given free housing? What if we never had to pay for gas again? I hope this is not coming off as me trying to argue, I'm simply trying to add to the conversation.
