Strength Of Schedule

Discussion in 'Buckeye Football' started by Buckeyefrankmp, Jan 10, 2009.

  1. What is the equation that factors Strength Of Schedule. Is it just combined wins and losses of all the teams you play?

    Well the advanced systems, like the ones that the computers that factor in the BCS, are much more sophisticated.. It would take into account the W-L of your opponents, and their W-L's, and those opponent's W-L's, etc, so that you know how valuable each win/loss really is.

    There are many different strength of schedule calculations. The one the BCS used to use is this:

    SOS= (2/3)(OpWins/(OpWins+OpLosses))+(1/3)(OpOpWins/(OpOpWins+OpOpLosses))

    Op= Opponents
    OpOp= Opponents' opponents

    Interesting article:

    The "strength of schedule" is somewhat arbitrary and subjective: however, it is interesting that neither Alabama, Oregon, Florida State, TCU, Baylor, nor Ohio State is in this guy's top 25:

    Entire article: http://collegefootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2015/03/23/report-arkansas-played-college-footballs-toughest-schedule-in-2014/

    Basically when all is said and done, the teams that play the top teams (not the top teams) have the strongest schedule....:biggrin2:

    Ohio State/Oregon/Alabama plays a team and beats them; that team earns a loss. Thus losing strength points. If Arkansas was 6-2 instead of 2-6 in the SEC; would they still have played the toughest schedule or would the teams they just beat all of a sudden not be as strong?

    buxfan4life The future's so bright, I've gotta wear... shades.

    Cute, but irrelavant since Ohio State is still Undisputed National Champs last i looked regardless how hard/easy one writer thinks their schedule turned out.

    @twister55 I didn't read your post before making mine, I wasn't addressing any of your concerns. Not entirely sure why you quoted me? I could care less about SOS, we won in a playoff format. Everything else is offseason click generating.

    cincibuck You kids stay off my lawn!

    They compare wins and losses, opponent's wins and losses, opponents opponent's wins and losses, conference record outside of conference, scores and statistical analyasis in seven different measureables, average length of penises among offensive linemen and then they look at which teams fans will spend the most money in some dirt bag, money grabbing, backwoods tourist rip off location that allows you to wear the Confederate battleflag as a 1st Amendment right and whose team will likely cough it up so as to complete whatever SEC, SEC, SEC! narrative ESPN has decided to follow.
