There are not five HBCUs better than A&T. I don't like those dogs but fair is fair.  :no:

There are based on the numerical criteria he is using.  This has nothing to do with field play. :shrug:

So why have a rating system if its not to show, by using numbers, who probably is the best? Every power rating I have seen uses numbers to predict what the outcome would be if teams played.

It is NOT an opinion poll.
That said compare top 10 match up results with where they ranked before the game. Better yet wait until next week when I will have everyone listed, knowing that there is only one game left.

So in the end, can we look at these rankings and get an idea of who might beat whom? Or in short, what does these rankings mean?

Yes to the first question, with "might" being the key word. Now that the season is nearly done one can see who DID beat whom, and their respective ratings.  Off the top of my head the only "upsets" have been, Morgan vs. A&T, and Delaware State vs. Bethune-Cookman.  I will review that too after Saturday's game.

It measures how each team has fared playing their respective schedules.  In that many here think the FCS teams are inherently better than the D2 teams, I began separating them.

Point hierarchy:

Win vs a Winner on the road
Win vs a Winner at a neutral site
Win vs a Winner at home
Win vs a Loser on the road
Win vs a Loser at a neutral site
Win vs a Loser at Home
Loss to a Winner on the Road
Loss to a Winner at a neutral site
Loss to a Winner at home
Loss to a Loser on the road
Loss to a Loser at a neutral site
Loss to a Loser at Home

Caveats:  Teams are given extra credit for winning by more than 17, and
          similarly punished if losing by more than 17.
          FCS teams are given extra credit against FBS teams, unless the
          FBS team is horrible (0-3 wins); more if the losses are 28 points
          or less.
          HBCUs vs HBCUs are treated the same.
 
          Now that we have a full season of results, each team and their
          opponents have received a "grade," A-F, with A,B,and C teams
          having winning records, and D,E, and F teams having losing
          records. .500 teams are either C or D teams depending on whether
          their power rating is positive (including 0.00), or negative.
          So the numbers will be modified to reflect these grades, as
          opposed to listing opponents simply as winners or losers.

OK, I can live with that.

With all the divisive rhetoric on social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter, websites such as ours, especially message boards, are under the watchful eye of the Internet giants. And those giants are coming down hard on sites like this one due to the perception of the need for better "oversight".

We recognize the cultural conflict that exists and over the past few months we've been accused of allowing content in posts/threads that supposedly violates some advertiser's policies. Those threads weren’t an issue in the past, but for some reason, they are an issue now. And we are being penalized (financially) because of it.

 

As a result we are coming to you directly for your financial support>
