I get a mention in this week's FEI article, thanks to an idea I thought up last week on twitter, which Brian was able to measure more precisely. FEI is not kind to FSU this year, however, as the beatdowns FSU has put on its opponents aren't so special when measured against the beatdowns everyone else has given to those teams. And it doesn't help that Oklahoma demolished FSU yet hasn't played very good football in all of its other games. Florida State currently rates 39th overall, with the 25th-ranked offense and the 51st-ranked defense (seems counterintuitive until you realize FSU's O has played the 13th-toughest set of defenses and FSU's D has faced the 73rd-toughest set of offenses). 73rd v. 13th is an enormous difference. The other half of the F/+ system, the Varsity Numbers S&P+, has FSU 24th, with the 25th-rated offense and the 28th-rated defense. FEI and S&P+ combined probably puts FSU at around 32nd. The combined rankings come out this Friday. A win over NC State should boost FSU's status in the November 5th standings.
