Conference Championship Week – CSD Computer Rankings & Resume Rankings – Ohio State Up To #4

First off, we’ve got the resume rankings. This evaluates the strength of the teams you beat and the teams you lost to relative to every other team in the country. If Team A goes 12-0 against the #12 SOS in the country and wins every game on a last-second field goal and Team B goes 12-0 against the #13 SOS in the country blowing every team out 77-0, it makes no difference. In the eyes of this model, the saying goes, “A win is a win is a win.” If you want a ranking that takes things like game control into account, scroll down to the second set of rankings, which judge who are actually the best teams in the country, not just the best resumes

Alright, now it is time for the CSD Computer Rankings. The model is predictive and forward-looking, not recursive and resume based. It is meant to predict who would win if two teams played tomorrow, and so as the season moves on, early season results are counted less and less (See: Michigan ahead of Notre Dame)
