It's that time of the week again, where I take a bunch of data someone else put together and make wild extrapolations from them! First, the data:
South Carolina 90.04
Texas A&M 88.49
Mississippi State 77.14
Ole Miss 74.90
Now, the wild extrapolations...Here's what Sagarin projects for the remainder of the season:
Texas A&M (5-3)
Ole Miss (4-4)
Mississippi State (4-4)
East Alabama Male College (2-6)
South Carolina (6-2)
Alabama (-13) over Florida
Same rules apply: add 2.42 points to the home team, compare numbers, boom, project the outcome. Some random thoughts: The model clearly took that LSU/Auburn game very seriously. Florida's not #1 in the "predictor model" (like they are in the "ELO_CHESS" model that's used in the BCS), although at #8 they still feel too high. The model also loves TAMU, in a possibly related note, but the Aggies suffer from a brutal schedule.
OK, what seems most out of whack to you?
