I can only imagine the lead J Dub must have now.

Here is the list based on seasons 56-60.

There are 10 new schools.... although Johnson St. should have been on the list last season too. 

Louisiana and Susquehanna are tied for 13... the tie-breaker is usually the determined by the team that did best most recently.  Amazingly, they have the exact same results the past 5 seasons in NT, so I just left them tied.  I think I got the other tie-breakers correct. 

I also added the total score column, so you can see how close you are relative to other teams.

sweet!  Made the list
9/12/2012 1:17 PM
Brian, does the formula take into account anything prior to the last 5 seasons?  I'm also curious how it's weighted if you can explain in brief.

Thanks for doing this.  Gives me something to shoot for.
9/22/2012 7:24 AM
Thanks for doing this- sweet to be on the list.
10/29/2012 3:22 PM (edited)
To qualify, must make post season 4 out of past 5 seasons (PT or NT).

=(I2*1)+(H2*0.9)+(G2*0.8)+(F2*0.7)+(E2*0.6)

This is the formula - 100% of the points are counted from the most recent completed season.  90% from 2 seasons ago, 80% from 3, 70% from 4, and 60% from 5....

The points are all based on how far team advanced in post season.

Point values:

national champ - 38 points
runner up - 35
final four - 32
elite 8 - 28
sweet 16 - 25
second round - 23
1st round - 22

PIT winner - 24
runner up - 23
semis - 22
3rd round - 21
2nd round - 20
1st round - 19

My modification of non-post season point value (slightly different than Al's):
If one year the team doesn't make the PT or NT:
conference regular season champ - 13
rpi better than 100 - 12
101 to 132 -- 10
133 to 175 - 9
less than 175 - 6

tie breakers - most recent season, and keep going backwards if still tied...
9/22/2012 2:44 PM
Interesting.  I kinda figured recent seasons were weighted more heavily, but I guess not.  I think sweet 16 and higher should be weighted more.  Thanks for sharing.
9/22/2012 4:15 PM
Yes, it definitely favors more recent seasons, but not by a huge amount.  The NT/PT points assigned are exactly what Al Black does. 

He does something slightly different for a season that a team misses the PT or NT... but I found it kind of confusing.  So I just made up those criteria, loosely based on his method.
9/23/2012 11:09 PM
PIT winner shouldn't be worth more than 2nd round NT.  I also think if 2nd round is 23, sweet 16 should be more like 30.  Then E8 - Champ could be between 35 and 45.  But that's just one guy's opinion.
