13 Teams Have the Blue Chip Ratio

Postby billybud » Thu Aug 23, 2018 3:37 pm

Only 10 percent of the 130 teams in FBS have enough talent to win the natty, according to a recent historical benchmark.

Billy...what I have been saying for years

Donovan...Oh no! Let me sit down, this rant may be the big one.

I think the takeaway is that recruiting at this level is no guarantee of success, but not recruiting at this level is a guarantee you cannot compete at a championship playoff level.

As I age it is hard to tell if I am inspired by reasoned passion or arthritic knees; most likely it is arthritic reasoning.

...this is so typical of the East Coast sports mentality. Makeup some cockamamy, pseudo calculated, premeditated goody-goody, alchemized formula; give it a pretentious, Pharisaic name like "Blue Chip Ratio" and think the rest of the country is going to bow down to this Gnostic idol.

Bacon had it correct. "Truth must be reasoned from first principles." In this case, the first principle is the system is corrupt and all the meandering verbiage does not change that fact. The reason the teams listed are going to win is that they are the only ones that will be considered.

"The chances of winning the drawing are zero when your ticket is never placed in the bowl!" Now that isn't so difficult to understand, is it?

To dream the impossible dream
To fight the unbeatable foe
To bear with unbearable sorrow
And to run where
The brave dare not go

(Cue swelling music)

To try when your arms are too weary
To reach the unreachable star
This is my quest

To follow that star
No matter how hopeless
No matter how far

(wipe tears from eyes and and think that the world is better for a demented but committed old fool and his windmills)...

They’re either going to run the ball here or their going to pass it.

“Destiny guides our fortunes more favorably than we could have expected. Look there, Mr. Billybud, my friend, and see those thirty or so wild giants, with whom I intend to do battle and kill each and all of them, so with their stolen booty we can begin to enrich ourselves. This is noble, righteous warfare, for it is wonderfully useful to have such an evil race wiped from the face of the earth."
"What giants?" Asked Mr. Billybud.
"The ones you can see over there," answered his friend, "with the huge arms, some of which are very nearly two leagues long."
"Now look," said Mr. Billybud, "what you see over there aren't giants, but windmills, and what seems to be arms are just their sails, that go around in the wind and turn the millstone."
"Obviously," replied his friend, "you don't know much about adventures.”

Ah yes, my friend...I think we will both go on sparring on the board until the sad message is posted by one of our widows that we have passed.

Or Derek tires of keeping us going...
