Week Nine F/+ Rankings

New, 11 comments

F/+ rankings have been updated at the Football Outsiders mothership. They actually were yesterday, but I hadn't gotten around to posting about it here yet.

As one would have expected, Boise State fell from its precarious perch at No. 1 after simply beating Air Force and not destroying them. (That's the risk you run with schedule-adjusted numbers -- you can overcome a weak schedule, but you better downright humiliate every team in your path.) And as I will tackle in tomorrow's Morning Tailgate mailbag, despite injuries, Oregon is actually raking in the quality advanced stats this year, as opposed to last year when they went 12-0 and made the national title game. Stats are fun.

I apologize for the lack of Study Hall posts the last couple of weeks. The posting schedule is tight enough that, if I fall behind on Sunday (as I typically do when there's a Mizzou home game on Saturday), I'm still behind on Wednesday or Thursday. Hopefully I get back on schedule soon. And you should expect some Time To Share Some Data data later today.
