Welcome back football fans. The PiRates are back at it working late nights compiling the 2015-16 college and NFL ratings.
Look for the new season to kick off in Mid-August, when we begin previewing each of the FBS conferences, one at a time, beginning with the lowest rated conference and ending with the highest rated conference. Gee, can you guess which conference might be the tops? Hint: A current Big Ten coach once said that the three toughest leagues in American Football were the NFC, the AFC, and this conference.
It will come as no surprise which individual team is number one in the preseason, and it also will not be all that surprising when they debut with the highest preseason PiRate Rating since Nebraska began the 1995 season. Hint: Their third best quarterback might be a top Heisman Trophy contender if he played at any of the other 24 teams in the Top 25.
The NFL Ratings will appear after the final college conference preview, and this will lead up to the first week’s college schedule.
The Ratings and spreads each week will be available from our website at http://www.piratings.webs.com. This blog site will add extras, and if we can ever get the tabular format to align properly here, we will post the ratings and spreads here as well.
Enjoy the remainder of your summer, and remember to come back to this blog in Mid-August for our first conference preview.
