    There are facts and then there are damned statistics.

    I have always been interested in the Sagarin Ratings, and have made a hobby out of studying his work. If you look at the Louisiana FBS schools over the last 21 years based on final yearly rankings. The ranking would be as follows:

    Average Average Difference
    Final Ranking Power Rating from Tech
    1) LSU 17 86.52 20.35
    2) LA Tech 83 66.17 -
    3) Tulane 114 59.54 -6.63
    4) ULL 126 55.54 -10.63
    5) ULM 130 54.64 -11.53

    Thanks for saving me the lookup later. I knew it we would be ahead, but not by that much. Wow!

    Re: Louisiana FBS Football Overall Records So Far

    Just for fun, I also looked at just the last 10 years (2008-2017). LSU, Tech and ULL would have all increased in the rankings, and poor old Tulane has sunk to the bottom (when you eliminate the two Shaun King years, 1997-1998).

    Average Average Difference
    Final Ranking Power Rating from Tech
    1) LSU 12 87.97 20.04
    2) LA Tech 77 67.93 -
    3) ULL 109 60.26 -7.67
    4) ULM 130 56.1 -11.83
    5) Tulane 133 55.42 -12.51

    Yeah, for sure.

    I totally think that if we'd had some permanent home and home series with them and had played them 20 times in the last 20 years we'd be pretty firmly on the overall winning side of that. It probably wouldn't quite be 18-2 or anything like that, but I think we'd have won way more often than not. We'll never know, and the fact is they've won in the few times we have actually played (which were all in the 20s and 30s except for 2).

    LSU has it's gauntlet to run, and they won't emerge unscathed. But, truthfully, while I monitor other in-state schools, like I follow fellow CUSA schools, I only care what we do.
    I care to the degree of having our conference compete well. no gloru in beating up teams with lousy teams. Obviously I am glad that NT beat Arkansas and got attention not just for NT but also the conference. Beating NT meant so much more ( especially Bowl time)

    No stretch needed. 2/20 or 8/100 would not be a sufficient sample size to reach some conclusion by any measure, but I get that you were just going for a gotcha. You just messed this one up. We all have off days.

    No, I still maintain you are conflating facts and correlation.

    Or rather, in this case, a lack of statistical significance with a fact to the contrary.

    Well I maintain that you are misinterpreting which part of the statement I was claiming to be a fact.
