The Pi-Rate Ratings

October 22, 2007

PiRate Ratings For October 22, 2007

 Beginning today, I am making a couple of changes to the order that I place information here.  On Mondays, I will reveal the PiRate Ratings (Top 25 and Conference Standings) with the predicted bowl match-ups.  On Wednesday Night/Thursday early A.M., I will reveal the PiRates game predictions with the previews of the top games.

PiRates Look At The Bowls

 

In several places on the Internet, you can find bowl predictions.  This one is a little different than all others.  I use my PiRate Computer Ratings to determine what each team’s final record will be if they keep their current rating for the rest of the season.  Once I have these predicted final records, I then plug them into the bowl slots based on the bowl alignments and logic.  If, for instance, a team has been to a particular bowl more than once in the last few years, or they went last year, I am more inclined to send them somewhere else this year.  Of course, some bowls desire to have a real home team, so I use that information as well.

At this point of the season, it looks like Conference USA and the Pac-10 may fail to have enough bowl eligible teams to satisfy their allotments.  I am expecting the Pac-10 to send two teams to the BCS bowls, and Stanford is the only team capable of sneaking in at 6-6 (they must pull off another upset).  Several 6-6 teams are going to find themselves without a bowl chance this year if all goes according to the PiRate plan.  Maryland, Northwestern, Michigan State, Wyoming, and Vanderbilt could all finish 6-6.  Miami of Ohio and Florida Atlantic should finish with winning records but still get the shaft.  I am calling for the SEC to place a 7-5 South Carolina team in somebody else’s allotted bowl slot and for the Mountain West to place a 7-5 TCU team in the other vacant slot.

So, here is the new PiRate bowl look for October 22.

Notre Dame will not be bowl eligible this year, so I have not included them in the tie-ins
