It’s hard to justify how the metrics work and also how the AP voters vote each week on the polls.
This may be the season the SOS ruins what could have been a good season because the SEC doesn’t appear to be strong on paper and quality wins may be tough to come by!
Army, it’s just so early in the season that those data-drive models don’t have enough information to be very accurate yet. Normally takes about 10-12 games before they start falling into place.
To be fair, it’s also hard to judge our team so far this year because of the competition. Normally, by now, we’d have played at least one Power 5 type opponent, and/or a road game to assist in that evaluation. Due to Covid related factors, we’ve done neither.
We’ll find out plenty about this team in the first 2 weeks of SEC play.
Your right about it takes 10 to 12 games for the data to level out but this non conference schedule won’t do our hogs any good and the rest of the SEC has pretty stuck it up so where are the quality wins going to come from?
