The Pi-Rate Ratings

PiRate Ratings For College Football: October 4-6, 2012

The Best Week of the Season

This first weekend of October shapes up to be the best week yet for college football.  Gone are the State U vs. Directional School U matchups we were forced to endure in September.  Conference play is underway in earnest, and this week, a host of excellent games will be available for viewing.

 

Starting at Noon Eastern Time, Northwestern visits Penn State, where a road win would put the Wildcats squarely in competition in the Legends Division race.  20 minutes later, two teams going in the wrong direction face off in a bowl elimination game.  1-4 Arkansas visits 1-3 Auburn, and the loser will definitely be headed to a sub-.500 finish.

 

At 3 PM Eastern, Duke hosts Virginia.  If the Blue Devils win, they will be 5-1 and just one win shy of bowl eligibility for the first time in 18 years.  With the rest of the Coastal Division being down this year, Coach David Cutcliffe could even sneak Duke into contention in the division.  A 6-2 record should win the Coastal, and while we don’t see Duke going 6-2, they could be 5-3, and if North Carolina wins the division at 6-2.  The key games will come against Miami and Virginia Tech.

 

At 3:30 PM Eastern, Oklahoma visits Texas Tech.  Quietly, Coach Tommy Tuberville has the Red Raiders waiting in ambush at 4-0, and a win over the Sooners would vault TTU up into serious contention in the Big 12.  Oklahoma had a week off following a home loss to Kansas State.

 

The first of two big SEC games starts at 3:30.  LSU and Florida are both undefeated, and the two powers face off at The Swamp in Gainesville.  LSU has not been playing up to potential, while Florida is starting to resemble Alabama.

 

A mediocre Wisconsin team hosts an even weaker Illinois team, but the winner will remain a co-contender in the Leaders Division of the Big Ten. 

 

At 4 PM Eastern, Purdue hosts Michigan.  If Purdue wins, the Boilermakers become the top contender for the Leaders Division and Michigan will be behind the “eight-ball.”  If Michigan wins, the Wolverines could move into first place by themselves in the Legends.

 

The evening kicks off with two 7PM games matching up undefeated teams.  In the Big 12, West Virginia visits Austin to take on Texas.  Geno Smith faces his stiffest test to date, as the Longhorns’ defense is the best one WVU will have faced.

 

In the SEC, Georgia visits South Carolina, and the Bulldogs will be going up against the first strong defensive team on their schedule.  The Gamecocks have been flying under the radar, and this game should be a bruising match.

 

Another 7 PM game finds Texas A&M visiting Ole Miss, and the winner will be a strong contender for a bowl game, possibly the Independence or Liberty Bowl.

 

At 7:30 PM Eastern, Miami and Notre Dame square off at Soldier Field in Chicago.  The Irish are 4-0 and a win over the Hurricanes will make the following week’s game against Stanford vitally important.  Notre Dame could be 7-0 when they visit Oklahoma in three weeks, and if the Irish can get by Miami, Stanford, and Oklahoma, only a regular season finale at USC would be in their way of competing for the National Championship Game.

 

At 8 PM Eastern, Nebraska visits Ohio State.  The Buckeyes can still win the AP National Championship if they run the table and end up the only undefeated team, but they are not eligible for postseason play.  A Nebraska win would give the Cornhuskers a major leg up on the competition in the Legends Division, while a loss throws the race wide open.

 

Also at 8 PM, Florida State visits North Carolina State.  The Wolf Pack have given the Seminoles fits in Raleigh in the last 15 years, and Florida State will expect to get NCSU’s best effort of the season.

 

The night ends with a 10:30 game in Eugene, Oregon.  The Washington Huskies, fresh off an upset of Stanford, play at Oregon.  We don’t expect UW to pull off another upset, but this game should show the nation (or that part that can stay awake) if the Ducks are worthy of mention with Alabama, Florida State, and the other two undefeated winners in the SEC.

 

The Woes of the Bone

In recent years, Army, Navy and Georgia Tech have been the torchbearers for the 21st century version of the wishbone offense.  The spread option (run & shoot formation) version of the ‘bone added the threat of four receivers at the line of scrimmage while keeping all but a few of the option and veer plays from the old wishbone formation.

 

Well, the ‘bone has been fractured this year.  Army has yet to win a game.  Navy has won just once and comes off a shutout loss at home to San Jose State.  Georgia Tech lost at home by three touchdowns to Middle Tennessee last week, and the Yellow Jackets saw the Sunbelt Conference opponent outrush them.  Tech has experienced a lot of difficulty punching the ball in the end zone inside their opponents’ five yard line.

 

The move to the passing game as the key weapon has changed the way defenses play the run.  Most teams now emphasize pass rushing over standard run-stopping, so they have quicker, more mobile defensive linemen and linebackers that can quickly drop into pass zones.  Against option teams, these defenders are preferable to the big defensive linemen that can eclipse the sun.

 

So, what it is the best way to run the ball these days?  Everything old is new again.  The big, smashing back, what used to be considered a fullback, has returned to prominence.  Teams are now looking for the Jim Brown, Larry Csonka, Marion Motley, John Riggins-type backs that can get two yards on 3rd and one almost 100% of the time and can take a small opening in the line and turn a line plunge or off-tackle slant into a seven-yard gain.  Teams with two tight ends and one back are hurting defenses with the dual threat of power running and quick passing.  Tight ends are now the hot commodity in football, and if a tight end can block a linebacker and also run a 10-yard route and catch the ball, his future as a pro is set.  This was the type of football of the mid-1960’s, when teams like Alabama and Notre Dame excelled at this type of offense.  So, as you watch this week’s games, look at how the top offensive teams move the ball.  Even the zone read, which retains some option feel, really uses the dual threat of horizontal passing with straight-ahead power running, proves this point.

 

This Week’s PiRate Ratings

An interesting thing happened this past weekend.  All the top teams that played took a step backward in the predictive ratings.  Oklahoma, which did not play, barely moved at all (less than a tenth of a point), and somehow the Sooners moved up to number two.  Florida State, LSU, Oregon, and Texas all slid back enough.  As a result, Alabama has now opened a 6.1 point lead over the number two team in the ratings.  The last time our number one team was more than six points better than the number two team was December of 2001, when Miami of Florida held a 6.2 point lead over Tennessee and 6.4 point lead over Oregon.  This occurred following the Friday afternoon massacre in Boulder, Colorado, when the Buffs blew out number one team Nebraska 62-36, and Tennessee beat Florida the next week in the makeup games from 9/11.  Miami won the national title, but Oregon’s showing in the Fiesta Bowl brought the final gap to less than six points.

 PiRate Vintage

The Vintage Rating is a little more retrodictive than the standard PiRate Rating.  It looks more like the standard polls, but we still consider it more predictive than retrodictive.  Because this rating relies on factors totally separate from the standard rating, there tends to be larger swings than the regular ratings.  Four of the top five in this week’s poll hail from the SEC.
