    How does that chart confirm SOS is best of all the coaches following a bye week? By my reading Richt tops them all by a fair margin. Or did I misread it?

      The assumption before the stats was that SOS was better. Numbers say it is Richt. But don’t bet us to cover…ever.

        “But don’t bet us to cover…ever”. That’s a lesson I’ve painfully learned while participating in the Fabris Pool.

        Yeah that’s why I don’t bet the spread in CFB. Too hard to take my emotions out of the equation.

      I think they are saying that is after-bye-week winning percentage is higher compared to his regular SEC winning percentage. Weak argument; Richt is the best.

        I also think that is the point they are trying to make. You would have had to put in some serious effort to do a worse job of making that point though.
        Using 4 paragraphs and 8 charts and not be able to clearly make that point is pretty impressive.

    The “winning percentage on the road after a bye week” thing is a little distorted for CMR because they don’t count the WLOCP as a road game even though it really is–it’s not played in Sanford Stadium so it’s an away game IMHO. How much of a distortion we can’t tell. Lately UGA has been getting a bye week before the WLOCP and has been winning that game, too. Counting the WLOCP may actually improve that stat as a large number of the losses to FU happened when UGA didn’t have an off week before that game.

      I don’t consider it a true road game myself, nor it is an away game. Neutral comes to mind. That is probably why it is not in the stats.

      That said, nice to think that we have a 3 game win streak there.

        “we have a 3 game win streak there.” :)

        What you are doing is lumping all the games CMR loses into a separate category that nobody counts so it’s like they didn’t happen, thereby artificially fattening up the winning percentage of the “away” games category. Georgia under CMR is 5-8 in the WLOCP and 10-9 in bowls, SECCGs and preseason “neutral” site games. That makes UGA under CMR 15-17 all-time at “neutral” sites. Wouldn’t you rather just join all of them together in the “away” games category? The way I see it, if it isn’t played “tween the hedges” it’s an away game. Of course, that would markedly reduce the winning percentage for “away” games under CMR, wouldn’t it, and expose the truth about exactly how successful Georgia’s road record under CMR really has been.

    Senator,

    You’re doin it again.

    putting out these articles that make me think 14-0 again?

    I know it won’t happen, but thanks for delaying the inevitable.

    After reading and comparing, I couldn’t wait to divulge those chart findings to all of you. Unfortunately, yall already caught every point including the poor representation of the writer’s conclusions.

    It has me hyped for the SC game too far in advance(3 1/2 wks).

    Check out Mark Richt’s record against teams ranked in the top 25: 34-31. Awesome.
