If there is a way for the NCAA to assert its superior power, it does so by making everything more difficult and confusing, similar to your United States government and its IRS tax code which could reduce a sane person to tears just reading it.

You will have to forgive the NCAA for taking titles that have been used for years and are perfectly clear, then renaming them and creating confusion in the process.

5) Notre Dame, beaten badly (33-3) by Georgia Tech, was rated No. 242 La Salle Explorers. Good luck, La Salle, and God speed.

A hypothetical victory margin is determined by comparing the rating of the two teams after adding 2.93 points to the home team. 5 by both the AP Poll and Coaches Poll going into the game. 38 following its upset of mighty Michigan 34-32 on Michigan’s home field. The win was the biggest upset in college football history as no AA team had ever beaten a ranked team.

Anyway, the Sagarin rating is a numerical measure of a team’s strength. . The Explorers next job will be to actually win a game. Following its horrendous loss, Michigan ended up being ranked No. 41 by Sagarin following its 23-3 home victory over Virginia.

Folks in the gaming business know that more than a billion dollars is wagered on every Monday Night Football game during the season.

The BCS (Bowl Championship Series) does not factor in scoring margin. Now you can better understand why La Salle College is ranked last among 242 Division I schools.

3) Appalachian State, a AA school, was rated No. 40 by Sagarin.

Only Division I (both A and AA) are counted for rating and schedule strength during the season.

When you know that more than $700 million can be bet on one game–the Super Bowl–in only Las Vegas, then you understand that billions were bet illegally on the Super Bowl last year in the United States and in offshore sports books around the world.

4) Wyoming, a small school and never among the nation’s top teams, was ranked No. Ursinus is not a planet but a real liberal arts college in Pennsylvania.

For those who wager, it may be helpful to put some science on your side when you wager, and one of the best places to do that is with the Sagarin College Football Ratings.

A diminishing-returns principle exists to prevent teams from building up ratings by running up large victory margins against weak teams. The worst-rated AA school is the No. The home edge will vary during the season.

Ursinus College is not a Division 1 school (which includes the 242 teams with La Salle), not a Division II team (which includes another 157 teams), but a Division III team. 57 after the loss. La Salle lost its home opener to Ursinus 28-0. Both teams are among the 7 worst Division I-A teams in the country, joining Louisiana-Monroe, Rice, Duke, Utah State and Florida International.

While betting on sports is only legal in a few places in the United States, such as Las Vegas, millions of office workers are involved in sports pools every week now that the football season has arrived.

2) Michigan State, another short end of the stick team for far too long, was rated No. The Irish failed to score a touchdown for the first time ever in their home opener.

Following the first week of college football action, here are some facts that interested me about Sagarin’s first-week ratings:

The first job for La Salle this year will be to score a touchdown, or any points, including a field goal or touchback. 36 after steamrolling over UAB 55-18 in its home opener.

7) A total of 242 teams, 119 A schools and 123 AA schools, make up the Sagarin College Football Ratings. The worst-rated A school is Florida International at No. 174 (56 AA teams are rated better), and their play reflects their rating. 31 after hammering Syracuse 42-14 in its home opener.
