Week 5 DUSHEE (2018)

This week, DUSHEE has pretty much the same top 6 that everybody else has, although perhaps not in the same order ... Bama, Penn St., Clempson, Ohio St., UGa, and Noater.  After that, DUSHEE is still a little crazy with App. St. (they did fall 4 spots) and Kentucky next in line.  Our Frogs fell 5 spots to #33.   Top and Bottom Performances of the Week   Now that we are 5 weeks in, we can go back and see what the top and bottom DUSHEE-rated performances of each week were.  Keep

The "Extra Crispy" Formula   If you are a regular reader of this blog, you have heard me preach innumerable times that there is nothing mystical about computational models, be they models of college football team performance or models of hurricanes.  The only thing that differentiates a "computer" model and a human "gut" feeling is the amount of data used and the amount of bias awareness built in.   So in a previous edition of this blog, we talked about my most recent attempt
