Games are ranked like recruits: 5 stars, 4 stars, and 3 stars. Just like in recruiting, 2-star and 1-star games won’t be given much attention.
Games are ranked using a super-scientific system comparing the overall quality of the two teams and the closeness of the match-up. The quality of each team is found using Brian Fremeau’s, Bill Connelly’s, and ESPN’s advanced stats ranking systems.
Last week’s picks: 7-6 (.538); Upset picks: 0-1 (.000)
Overall: 16-12 (.571); Upsets: 2-4 (.333)
Without further ado: the best games of week 4. All times AZ.
