I only listed some of notable teams for the 2011-12 season and did not calculate all 120 teams. If anyone would like to know a team's Fair Ranking stats that are not listed then let me know per the comment box below and I will update it. Here is a recap of how the system works followed by some random notes about the teams ranked:
The formula for the Fair Ranking System is as follows:
Team's win% X beaten opponents' win % X beaten opponents' of beaten opponents win%= Fair Score.
Games against non-FBS teams were counted and each non-FBS team was designated a record of 1-10 in order to give some value to the game. Also, if an FBS team is winless at the end of the season, then their record will still show one win when calculating a team's fair score in order to give value to all wins. Losses of beaten opponents against the team being calculated were not included in the win-loss percentage of beaten opponents.
When I added up all the opponents' win-loss records before converting the fractions to percentages, I noticed other statistical measures to include. I listed the beaten opponents' wins (BOW) and total wins for each team. Total wins consist of the team's wins, beaten opponents' wins, and beaten opponents' of beaten opponents wins.
Alabama is the BCS National Champion for the 2011-12 college football season and are worthy of that, but in terms of overall wins in relation to schedule strength they lagged behind by finishing third in the Fair Rankings. The previous season's BCS champ Auburn unlike Alabama had the highest fair score along with their undefeated record that same year. LSU and Arkansas were the Tide's best wins. Alabama's next best win was against Penn state which finished 9-4. Besides those games Alabama had mostly weak to mediocre opponents, but still managed to tally seven wins against opponents with seven or more wins; Playing lower division opponent like Georgia Southern helped lower their end Fair Ranking stat totals.
Oklahoma State had the highest fair score and Total wins, but LSU had the highest BOW as well as finishing with the second highest Fair score posted. The Cowboys simply had a difficult schedule with strong wins against Baylor, Kansas State. Oklahoma, and Stanford. They also tallied nine wins against teams with seven wins or more. LSU had a regular season win against Alabama plus strong wins against Oregon, West Virginia, Arkansas, and Georgia. The Tigers also garnered nine wins against teams with seven or more wins.
Oklahoma despite being ranked 15 and 16 in the Coaches Poll and AP Poll respectively had the fourth highest fair score of the teams calculated. Michigan finished well with the fifth best Fair Score on this post. Michigan also had the second best Fair Score and most Total wins posted after week five of the 2011 season. Arkansas finished the season with one more win than their previous season and a Cotton Bowl win for a 11-2 record. However, the Hogs finished statistically similar to the prior season in which all the Fair Ranking stats were slightly better the season before despite having one less win and a Sugar Bowl loss.
