ESPN FPI Not High on Huskers


Recommended Posts

Nebraska football fans got a cold slap in the face Wednesday when ESPN revealed its first 2017 "Football Power Index."

 

The Huskers are listed 58th among the 130 FBS teams, with a projected win-loss record of 5.5-6.5.

 

ESPN says FPI is a measure of team strength meant to be the best predictor of performance “going forward.’’ Projected results are based on 10,000 simulations of various factors in the FPI formula. The ratings and projections change daily.

 

The first FPI projection has Nebraska losing six of its final seven games — the lone victory in that stretch is over Purdue — and posting a 3-6 Big Ten mark.

 

ESPN gives Nebraska a 0.0 chance of winning out or winning the conference.

Yes. I don't know anyone that thinks the Huskers this year are a 5 or 6 win team.

What should ESPN know about the Huskers to make them rank us higher? What they think, from a distance, is that we lost all our top skill players, we've fundamentally changed the defense, we've got several new coaches, and a QB who has never been impressive on a major stage. Why should they rank us higher?
