Ohio State is the Clear National Champions

In last week’s preview, we talked about how Ohio State’s stats vs. Alabama represented “the boxscore of a champion” because of advantages at the point of attack, in third down conversions, and defense (holding Alabama well below its norms). We also talked about how Oregon’s blowout of Florida State wasn’t representative of what’s normally considered championship style football because champions don’t allow over 500 yards…and...

Jimmyshivers ACC Bowl Game Selections

YTD:  26-13 +10.79 units   Last time out we fell victim to a Georgia Tech backdoor to prevent the 2-0 sweep in the ACC title game.  Overall there is little to complain about as our plays were very good this year and we managed to win at a 66% clip on the season.,   It would be wonderful to replicate this success for bowl season but as always I would be very happy to walk away with more units won than lost.  I hope...

Using “Conference-Only” Stats to Get Accurate Reads As a stathead, probably the most disappointing element of the “debate” this season about who belonged in college football’s Final Four was the absence of discussion about statistics. It’s as if everyone decided looking at stats was just too complicated, so let’s just follow some simple rules: Any undefeated Power 5 team gets in (Florida State) The SEC champ gets in...

OSU will face off against Nick Saban’s Crimson Tide in a National Semi-final. Can Urban and the Buckeyes shock the...

Did ‘Bama’s Blake Sims Have a Better Season than Heisman Winner Marcus Mariota? That’s the premise of an article that was posted at Deadspin on the day the Heisman Trophy was awarded to Marcos Mariota of Oregon. Veteran author Allen Barra summed it up this way: “The phrase “body of work” has become popular this college football season when discussing national championship and Heisman Trophy contenders, so...

The Saturday Edge Pick: Army vs Navy

The Middies Navy comes into this game 6-5. Less than a stellar season by their standards. With 15 starters back and coming off a 9-4 season bigger things were expected in 2014. It simply didn’t happen. Much of it had to do with a defense that hasn’t played as well as they did last season. And also mistakes have plagued this team, which is very uncharacteristic for Navy. They are -2 in turnover margin compared to...
