It seems like part of Auburn's lead is the fact that they have played 9 games, compared to 8 or 7 with some of the other teams. It would be interesting to get a feel for how much room a team still has to increase their position by the time the final rankings come in.
I think at the end of the year, the teams would have all played the same # of games. However, some of those teams they would have played would not be Gus-eligible, I think (Matt can correct me if I am wrong).
Yes, I was referring to while the season is still underway. Although I do understand that teams that play Hawaii get to play 13 games instead of 12....
Yeah, Justin is right. And teams that play a conference title game could have 13 regular season games as well. So combining all of the aforementioned fun, a team with a conference title game and Hawaii on the schedule could conceivably hit 14 games, then play a 15th in a bowl game. Is there a stipulation against this?
So would a projection of how many possible points remain in the regular season by looking to how many games they have remaining and assuming past victories win out be helpful? I was thinking it would help indicate during the season if a team was close to hitting their max as an indicator. For example, a string of weak opponents at the end of the year would be a negative outlook and a string of tough opponents would be a positive outlook if the team is favored to win.
