Nutshell Sports NCAA Football Ratings
Welcome to my fantasy.

I used to track the lines and rate the teams according to how the line changed from week to week. And I noticed something interesting. Just because a good team lost wasn't necessarily a reason for them to change a team's rating. That got my gears turning. A few years later I designed this system using that theory. It is based on head to head competition. There is no exaggerated margin of victory factor and there is no schedule strength. They are natural in this system. (Original Middle Game Ratings HERE.)

I'm unveiling the new Nutshell Sports for the bowls and playoffs. The old one has quality but I have decided to combine it with the Naked Eye Ratings in a broader formula to make it more meaningful and accurate. The old version is still in this formula. Nutshell Sports will be a combination of MOV and W/L while the Naked Eye is only W/L. By the way, sorry, Florida State. I watched Notre Dame go undefeated a few years ago and get manhandled in the championship game. If you somehow win the next two games, I will be the first to congratulate you.
