UPDATE: Mistakes were made and ranking system modified.
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: 2-0 (1.000)
Overall: 29-21 (.580); Upsets: 5-6 (.455)
Without further ado: the games. All times AZ.
