Crimson Tide and Seminoles Atop BCS Ratings (11/11)


Shayn Roby’s Take: Alabama and Florida State currently sit atop the BCS rankings, although many would argue (including Shayn Roby) that Ohio State should be in the #2 slot by virtue of not having lost a football game since January of 2012. However, there is still quite a bit of football left to play before that even becomes something to worry about.

Interconference Winning Percentages (11/10)


Shayn Roby’s Take: The Southeastern Conference leads all FBS leagues with a winning percentage of 83.3%. It should not be surprising, as the SEC has amassed seven consecutive BCS National Championships. There is no reason to believe that an eighth may be added to that total this year. Fans from Ohio State and Florida State probably would disagree, but the Alabama Crimson Tide are certainly not overly impressed by either squad, one can be assured.

Idle Ohio State moves up to No. 3 in Coaches Poll


Shayn Roby’s Take on Shayn Roby’s Take: Alabama is the two-time prevailing champion for the Football Bowl Subdivision. Ohio State hasn’t lost a game in a year and eleven months. Just like winner-stay up-rules on the city park basketball court, these two teams should occupy the top two spots until they lose a game. It’s common sense.

Week 10 FBS Scores


Shayn Roby’s Take: Ohio State and Florida State both demolished their opponents. Both teams are in solid contention for the number 2 spot in this week’s BCS rankings.

FBS Victories Vs. Teams With Two or Less Losses (10/30)


Shayn Roby’s Take: Alabama and Ohio State sit atop this list, as well as in the Roby Ratings Top 25. However, a few undefeated teams have yet to play and beat a team with two losses or less, which means they have done very little to prove their metal so far. Miami (Fl), No. Illinois, and Fresno State all fall into this category.

2013 Interconference FBS Winning Percentages (10/13)


Shayn Roby’s Take: Conference winning percentages suggest that if the participants for the BCS National Championship Game were selected today, that the Pac-12 and SEC Champions would square off to determine the king of the mountain. However, it should be noted that Ohio State has not lost a game since 2011, and is probably deserving of a shot to prove their metal against the SEC champion.  (Even though the Pac-12 has a higher winning percentage in games, the SEC has yet to have a participant lose in a Championship game since the advent of the BCS in 1998, with the exception of LSU, who was playing against another SEC foe, Alabama).
