with only half of coaches voting yes (last i checked), similar to last time, i'm assuming this is not gonna happen, as written. im curious, would the folks pushing for .500 be satisfied with .450 or .400 required for PIT? and would the folks against .500 be interested in a lower limit, like .450 or .400?
.450 makes - 12-14, 13-14, 13-15
.450 misses - 11-15, 12-15, 13-16
.400 makes - 11-15, 11-16, 12-17, 12-18 (9-17 then 3-1 in CT, very unlikely)
.400 misses - 10-16, 10-17, 11-17
i think most of the no people could probably live with 10-17 and 11-17 teams not being PIT eligible (at the .400 level), but im not positive. i also think most yes .500 limit people could live with 12-14 or 13-15 teams making it (.450 level), but less positive on that one :) and i suppose to the yes folks, .400 is at least better than nothing, isn't it? it gets rid of the most egregious cases, and its not like most 11-15 teams are going to actually make it. i feel the .450 level might be too tight, i still want to see a team who plays an insanely hard schedule and beats some tough teams, coming in at say 12-16, make it over some fluff team who beat nobody all year, and even lost to some total crap teams - assuming the projection report says the former team is better, of course! im thinking most of the "no" folks are going to be against .450, too, but i think there could be some value at .400 (although im not sure it would be worth the time for seble to do it, at that point).
we could test this with another survey, do you support .400 limit?
2) yes - but only because i can't get any better
3) no - i want the .500 and its not even worth doing .400
these would give some advanced data on where people stand, much better than yes and no, it seems to me. i just was throwing these numbers out there as round numbers, but one of the cases even was a 40% exactly, someone could definitely go through the data points and rank them and draw the line somewhere that is not round, to find a better compromise. actually... i guess ill do it real quick. will follow up in another post, most likely. curious on peoples thoughts on all this though still...
