That's just not fair for the Pac-10 teams, who got only 1 win from Washington & WSU.

Darin

It also skews the number of wins for the teams that were in the SEC and BIG 12 Championship Games. Take away Bama's 12 wins from Florida, Florida's 12 wins from Bama and Missouri's 9 wins from Oklahoma and they all drop down that list. If the PAC 10 and Big 10 played a championship game, both Penn State and USC move up. This illustrates just how much Texas got screwed this year...and this coming from a Trojan fan.

Skew the number of wins? While you're taking Bama, Florida and Mizzou wins from the first two and OU why don't you take them away from the rest you idiot. Take Ohio St. wins from USC & Penn St. Take Oklahoma's wins from Texas. OU still had 78 wins by their opponents having getting screwed before the season out of another I-A matchup so was forced to play a I-AA opponent. These numbers reflect how tough the Big 12 & SEC were top to bottom this year. Look at Pac 10 however and amazing top team then 3-5 mediocre to good teams and as you get closer to the bottom it just gets embarassing. Same thing with Big 10 without the huge embarassment at the bottom.

jweav2223, your SEC brain too small to understand Darin's post?
Florida had 79 victories in 13 games, while Texas had 75 in 12 games. So if you exclude conference championships, the order is this:
Texas, Oklahoma, Florida, Alabama, Boise State, Utah, USC...
I bet you didn't even get into a 4-year college.

Um, how did KY only have 21? They Played UF, 12 wins, UGA 9 wins, USCsouth, 8 wins, Vandy 6 wins, and UT 5, all in their own division. For a website about stats, you guys have some fact checking to do.

Larry Brown

Lots of great info on this post. Arizona sure improved their stock with that win over BYU but none of the other teams from the list had good showings.

Hugh Brown

This is one of the worst stats ever in that of course the teams with more wins are going to find that their opponents they were victorious over are going to have more wins since there are more of them. An overall winning percentage of the teams they defeated would do a much better job of telling the story here otherwise you have a pointless stat that only points out the obvious.

SoonerMinister

OU got screwed by having to schedule Chatty. Florida is way overhyped on the list. Multiple opponents of the Gators are on the "Easiest Path" list.
