The place for Tiger fans to talk football, basketball and recruiting
The place for Tiger fans to talk about everything Auburn and not!
Buy and sell your Auburn Tiger tickets here.
You have no favorite boards.
Football at the top of the Southeastern Conference is a roller-coaster ride.
This is really cool stuff here; thanks for the hard work. The descriptives for your overall score are particularly interesting, with a mean of 526 and a standard deviation of 190 we can really see the difference among these 'top tier' teams.
Thanks again Jadennis,
It's somewhat comical reading the many posters here on AUC that are fearful that doom & destruction has befallen AU.
Add to that, those same ones and others, cannot stop comparing AU with UAT and everything they do...bless their hearts they're just obsessed with what UAT thinks or says about AU.
There is a young uat fan at work that can't wait to show me the latest article or internet pic against AU...some really are just down right comical.
But, that young-un knows stuff like that has no effect on me...at all. It's just an out for him to express himself to an old man that can enjoy a good laugh.
Auburn is, and will continue to be amongst the best, and Ja stats are proof enought!

Great stuff, Jonathan!
I enjoy reading your statistics. Thanks for taking the time to enlighten us.
.....I've really enjoyed these pieces. It's always fun to dredge through the stats, and see what shakes out when you arrange them different ways.
Interesting analysis, but the arbitrariness of the point values assigned undermines the 'statistical' appearance of the results to some degree. I have really enjoyed your previous analyses but I think this one is a little problematic because of the point values. For instance, LSU gets points for winning a national title after getting in with two losses - you ignored poll rankings (which I agree with) but polls played a part of them getting into the game, like the polls kept Auburn out of the title game in 04, so by awarding so many points for a national title you are allowing rankings to influence your results.
Good work though and an interesting read.
Alabama delenda est.
In this day and age it's nice to read an article based on facts...shows us just how consistent LSU has been and how Florida has fallen off the cliff. War Eagle!!
With all the (CRAZY and uneducated) talk about how Auburn is processing players at a much faster rate than everyone else in the SEC. Including alabama. I would like to see stats on the players over the last 5 recruiting cycles. Tubs last 2 and Chiziks 1st 3. The ones that stayed and grew up in the program, the ones that left or were asked to leave and why, the players that contributed, and the players that warm the practice squad. The attrition of Tubs last 2 and how that affected Chizik.
I've seen several headings that talked about various aspects of each of these but haven't seen it all put together. If such a thing exists then please point the way, otherwise could you give us a summary?
