It's Football Season! Schmidt Computer Rankings Have a New Home

The calendar says it is almost September, the days are getting shorter, the nights are getting cooler.  It must be football season!  And with football season comes me spending my weekends trying to get my computer ratings going again.

This year, rather than muddling up this blog with the occasional entry on my computer's ratings, I've created a computer ratings blog that I'll do my best to diligently keep updated each week.  I've already posted last years season ending college ratings and the NFL will be there soon.

Go take a look and let me know what you think!

March Madness

March Madness is now well upon us and my bracket isn't doing so well through the first round and a half. I only had 22 of the first 32 games and have 5 of the 8 that advanced to the Sweet 16 yesterday.

However, I try to make things a little more interesting than just filling out my own bracket by filling one out for a variety of different systems and or rankings. Specifically, I have my own computer ratings, and I also fill out a bracket for Sagarin's ratings, and the two major polls. I am much more serious about my computer ratings for college football, but make a token effort for basketball.

My computer is beating me going 25 for 32 in the first round and having 6 of 8 so far in the second. Sagarin went 25 for 32 but has 5 of 8 so far. Just picking the higher seed would have gone 27 for 32 and 6 of 8 which is leading (not too many upsets so far).

Hopefully my picks can catch up, but it isn't looking promising ...
