Hoegher's Rankings and Picks: WEEK ELEVEN

I'm very annoyed at Alabama right now. I thought that 8 pt spread in their favor was the easiest pick ever. Historically elite defense vs "meh" offense? MONEY. But noooooo, Zach Mettenburger had to...

Hoegher's Rankings and Picks: WEEK TEN

On the bright side: I didn't spend money to go to our homecoming game. Saved a nice $60 and instead got to sit on my couch and drown my sorrows in beer. Good decisions all around! TOP 25 AND BIG...

Hoegher's Rankings and Picks: WEEK EIGHT

Sorry for the tardiness, y'all. I've been exhausted this week. Not because of work, but because I've spent my evenings staying up late. So many shenanigans, you wouldn't believe. Or MATLAB...

Hoegher's Rankings and Picks: WEEK SEVEN

Guys, I have exciting news. Well, maybe just exciting for me. STILL. So I've been making these rankings for the past two years, but I've felt somewhat hollow in doing so. See, the real treasure...

Sticking With the Theme of Data Sharing:

+

This isn't mine by any means, but I have been using it to create rankings for several past years (got back to 1990 as of now, with some scattered years prior to that). It's not nearly detailed enough to include play-by-play data, but it's got complete game scores for FBS schools going back to the early 1900's, and that's enough for some. As I've said, I've used these to create my own (amateur, probably wrong) rankings and I can say two things based on that: 1) 1959 Ole Miss was every bit the juggernaut Bill C said it was in his "100 Teams, 100 Years" Varsity Numbers Post 2) Steve Spurrier was a dick, based on 1996 Florida's obscene offense.
