PLAYitOFF.org The Campaign for a College Football Playoff - is a brand new site that is the headquarters for the campaign for a college football playoff to replace the current BCS national championship system. From the site, you can learn more about the arguments for and against a playoff, look at alternate proposals for a playoff and automatically send a letter lobbying for a playoff to the Presidents, Athletic Directors and Football Head Coaches of any or all of the 66 universities that comprise the six major conferences who make the decisions regarding football post-season! The site also includes information on which presidents, coaches, and athletic directors have previously come out in support of a playoff…and will soon include other features such as news feeds, chat forums, videos, petitions, and more.
How does the BCS standings formula work? The BCS Average is calculated by averaging the percent totals of the Harris Interactive, USA Today Coaches and Computer polls. The three aforementioned BCS components are each weighted equally: the USA Today Coaches Poll, the Harris Interactive College Football Poll and an average of the six computer rankings.
The 'Computer Rankings Percentage' (CPR) for each team is derived by dividing a team's actual voting points by a maximum 2850 possible points in the Harris Interactive Poll and 1575 possible points in the USA Today Coaches Poll. For the computer component, each team's percentage total is calculated in inverse points order (25 for #1, 24 for #2, etc.). The best and worst ranking for each team is dropped, and the remaining four are added and divided by 100 (the maximum possible points).
The six computer ranking providers are Anderson & Hester, Richard Billingsley, Colley Matrix, Kenneth Massey, Jeff Sagarin, and Peter Wolfe. Each computer ranking accounts for schedule strength in its formula.
