As the calendar turns to October, you want insight into college football. Which teams can we change our opinion about compared to the preseason?
On this episode of The Football Analytics Show, I dig out the insights based on my yards per play adjusted for strength of schedule. The back story on teams supplements the noisy data from 2018.
I discuss the 0-4 team better than their record suggests, and contrast them with the 5-0 team poised for disappointment. Then I look at how a team with playoff hopes has declined this season.

I would just make a small suggestion; leave the political jabs out. The risk reward just isn’t there. It really isn’t worth potentially alienating or annoying potential customers who may not want to hear anything other than football.

Thanks for the comments, appreciate it.
Agreed, most people don’t want to hear political stuff on a sports analytics podcast, either pro or against. We get a lot of it in other places!
Way to high on nebraska def. Best I have for them is 48th. I adjust for turnovers also. I know you say turnovers have no relevant value but I disagree strongly. Great podcast.
