Four teams are now in their top ten who haven't played a down, two in the top four (and projected for the playoffs.)

I've always thought their FPI was dumb. Maybe part of that is I've never bothered to try and understand it (in terms of the formula), but I also don't understand the point of it. A lot of questions in that "ranking", but Texas A&M as the 6th best SEC team behind LSU and auburn? When you've got data points like that, you lose me.

I thought the exact same thing when I first looked at it. What was funny was their commentary on how it didn't perform at all like they expected and it made no sense to them either!
