***NCAA Ratings***

The Predictive Ratings are a ranking of the 1-A teams according
to their estimated strength following their previous game. To
calculate the predicted outcome of a game, add three points to the
home team (if there is one) and find the difference.

The Retrodictive Ratings order the teams according to how well
they have played against their schedules and how tough their
schedules are. These ratings should be viewed as a progress report
 - in this case, the final one for the year.

My predictive ratings chose Miami and Florida in the championship
game. The retrodictive ratings chose Oregon as the most deserving
opponent to play Miami. Unfortunately, neither game happened. The
BCS says that Miami's win over Nebraska proves the system works.
It doesn't. How does it prove that Oregon might not be better?
We'll never know.
