In the past I think a top 50 win was a top 50 win whether at home or on the road. It also sounds like the committee will use more of a composite of several metrics to make these determinations. I think UC would have benefited with this last year.


Column 1: Home games against teams ranked 1-30, neutral games vs. top-50 teams, road games against top-75 teams

Column 2: Home games against teams ranked 31-75, neutral games vs. 51-100, road games vs. 76-135

Column 3: Home games against teams ranked 76-160, neutral games vs. 101-200, road games vs. 136-240

Column 4: Home games against teams ranked 161-351, neutral games vs. 201-351, road games vs. 241-351
I could see them putting something like a 50% weight on wins in column 1 followed by 25% on column 2. Then maybe 15% and 10% for the last two columns. So far we would have 3 wins in column 4 and 1 in column 3.

This also still leaves a lot of wiggle room for the committee to make judgement calls. Obviously beating #1 should have more weight than beating #30. So the committee can go through and say "yah but"...and then move teams around like they want to.

I would probably prefer they just rank every team from 1 to 351. A road win against #1 is worth 100% of 351 points and a road win against team #351 is worth 1 point. Then assign a multiplier something like .85 to neutral games and .70 to home games. So a neutral win against #1 is worth 351 x .85...and a home win would be 351 x .70.
