NCAA: SRS ratings through ten weeks

Posted by Chase Stuart on November 8, 2009

Last week, the SRS (along with just about every human being) was unimpressed with Iowa's resume. After an embarassing loss to Northwestern, the Hawkeyes are now at #29 in the SRS.

Before moving on to the results, a quick thanks to Peter R. Wolfe, who makes the results of every college football game available in an easy to use format. Early in the year, I was hesitant to use the results from the FCS (formerly I-AA) teams, as the small sample size was likely to skew the results. With ten weeks in the books, I am no longer lumping all FCS teams into one big group; now, each FBS team (formerly I-A team) that plays an FCS opponent will be given that specific team's strength of schedule grade, as opposed to the rating of the average FCS team. Along with an interesting week in college football, this tweak means the week 10 rankings look quite a bit different than last week's set.

The ratings are going to be a lot higher for each team as a result of eliminating the "FCS Team" and simply iterating every team in all of college football. But we're only concerned with the differentials between teams, and that hasn't been amplified. A quick reminder: these ratings are meant to be predictive, not a list of how college football teams should be ranked. Teams like Virginia Tech, Clemson and Oklahoma shouldn't be ranked that high in the polls, because they've had a number of losses this year. But based on their large victories, close losses, and/or tough strength of schedule, they're much better teams than their record indicates.

The full list of the 120 FBS teams, after the jump. As you will see, Texas finally broke the tie at #1.
