The 3 best teams in the nation at one point. That competition will serve us well as we begin our "Takeover".

Even so... How does that make them 18 spots higher than a team that played both of the teams in the National championship game?? The Formula is F'ed up IMO

Because Georgia also played two postseason games that bumped their SOS rating up. Playing LSU and Michigan State at what the formula considers neutral sites bumped up the rating for them.

Irrelevant.

We're talking about overall schedule, not OOC schedule.

That list is ignorant. We had the #2 SOS last year.

Even the NCAA has us at 6.

Chill People! Those are SOS Power rankings based on performance. Although we had a very tough schedule i think we can all agree that we did not perform very well against that schedule and the teams you see ranked higher obviously did.

On a weekly basis is schedule strength calculated. And finally, at seadons end. We had to be near the top after mid-season. Kentucky had to knock us down a peg. Vandy and Cincy being bowl teams had to give us a boost conversely.

I post this every season:

Ask the head coaches at Boise, Mich, USC, Ohio St., Okla, Oregon, FL. State, Wisc, Clemson, etc. if they would care to change schedules with TN????

Guess what the answer would be!

It uses a mathematical formula, just as the list you posted does as well. The NCAA's formula is a very simple one, just using winning percentages for all teams played on the schedule.

SOS? By mid-October, they were probably #1 in Save Our Ship, not 28.

Yeah but you can't not give a team points at all because they played an FCS school... and give teams points for playing FBS schools.. It doesn't make sense... It's like saying well ok This team played the Number 1 2 and 3 teams in the nation but we aren't going to rank them high bc they played an FCS school... On the other hand... Heres an SEC school that didn't play any of those top teams but they did play an easy FBS team so well rank them in the top 10.... Just stupid is what it is...
