Discussion for Week 11


Why is Alabama number one?

Alabama is number one in week 11 because their T100 score is higher than those of the other 127 teams. Seven of their ten I-A wins have been against teams who have won at least half of their games. 

The GCS does not take into account a team's conference, prior accomplishments, fan bias, or profit potential in the media. 

The only human factor in the T100 formula comes from the players and coaches on the field.

Why did Clemson only drop one to #3?

Clemson still has very strong wins against I-A teams. Their top-3 win score in the T100 breakdown is 23 which is second only to Ohio State. They are also one of the only two teams along with Penn State to have beaten a team with nine I-A wins.
