Strength of Schedule. Guess who 117th is.

    That is a load of crap, how else would the majority of the mountain west be ranked in the top half in schedule strength. They play virtually the same schedule! It is a small enough conference where they all play one another. Auburn and Utah are being penalized for beating the shit out of teams. [sarcasm]Nice formula...[/sarcasm]

    BTW, the best way to look at it is not how hard the schedule is, but how a team played with the schedule they had. I call it schedule performance, I figure it like so:

    You average the following three numbers:

    The team's record.
    Records of the opponents said team beat.
    Records of the opponents said team lost to. (Undefeated would be 100)

    This gives you a better indication of how well a team performed with their schedule by giving equal weight to a team's record, the records of whom they've beaten, and the records of whom they lost to. This obviously won't give you a true "ranking", but I think its a better way to look at the significance of your schedule rather than being penalized because of the conference you play in. Any Big 10 team would be on the outside looking in this year, and we would all shout it isn't fair. Unless, of course, it was scUM.
