    Behind Boone and Troy? I don’t think so.

    Considering it takes wins vs games played in the past 3 years into account, I'd say that's pretty damn good for us considering our past 3 year stretch.

    Sorted by the CFB ranking
    27 Statesboro
    46 Kennesaw
    60 Athens
    104 Atlanta
    131 Macon
    223 Savannah

    Hopefully the Savannah ranking will improve as it's now the GS flagship campus.

    If you look at the methodology, the rankings make sense. Otherwise they do not.

    College Football – Total Points = 25
    Number of College Football (FBS & FCS) Teams: Full Weight (~3.57 Points)
    Performance Level of College Football (FBS & FCS) Team(s): Full Weight (~3.57 Points)
    Note: This metric was calculated using the past three seasons’ averages and the following formula: Number of Wins / Total Number of Games Played.
    Number of College Football (FBS & FCS) Championship Wins: Full Weight (~3.57 Points)
    Number of College Football (FBS & FCS) Conference Championship Wins: Half Weight (~1.79 Points)
    Number of Hall-of-Fame Head Coaches: Half Weight (~1.79 Points)
    Minimum Season-Ticket Price for College Football (FBS & FCS) Game: Full Weight (~3.57 Points)
    College Football Fan Engagement: Full Weight (~3.57 Points)
    Note: This metric measures the number of Twitter followers and Facebook “Likes” (on each team’s official accounts) per capita.
    Number of Coaches in Past 10 Seasons: Half Weight (~1.79 Points)
    Note: “Past 10 Seasons” include seasons 2009–2010 to 2018–2019.
    College Football (FBS & FCS) Stadium Capacity: Half Weight (~1.79 Points)
    Note: This metric was calculated using the following formula: Stadium Capacity / Total City Population.


    Not a bad score considering 17 losses in 2 of last 3 seasons and 5 coaches in last 10 years being serious dings. Championships and cheap season tickets are boosts. Fargo, ND is #3. App has been consistently on top for 14 years.
