Featured: WK6 SRS Top 10, CFB Efficiency and Featured Matchup Analysis Focuses on Florida v LSU.


Introducing the first FS365 edition of the Simple Rating system combined with our Simple Efficiency Analysis. Beginning this week and continuing to the end of the football season we are going to test this system for accuracy. The goal of this analysis is to combine the Simple Rating System and Total Efficiency analysis and use both to evaluate total team strength and compare these ratings to the to the Vegas odds and other mainstream analysis. For college football, we can compare this system to the AP poll and playoff committee polls when they are released.
